East Siberian Railway

East Siberian Railway has 3,876 km of operational track. Its main line passes through Russia’s Irkutsk and Chita oblasts or regions and the Republics of Buryatiya and Sakha (Yakutia).

East Siberian Railway is managed from its HQ in Irkutsk and serves major industrial areas involved in coal and iron ore mining and timber felling and processing, as well as enterprises in ferrous metals and the energy and chemical industry.

The main line also includes Lake Baikal Railway, which skirts the lake, running from Baikal Station to Kultuk Station, a distance of over 85 km. Lake Baikal Railway is important for its industrial architecture - no other railway in the world has such a large amount of large-scale infrastructure objects, including 40 tunnels, 16 galleries, 470 viaducts, bridges and culverts and about 280 protecting walls. It also boasts impressive station buildings built a century ago.

The Baikal-Amur Main Line comprises the northern section of the East Siberian. In 2003, BAM saw the commissioning of the North-Muya tunnel, which at a length of 15,343 metres is Russia's longest and the fifth-longest in the world. The tunnel is up to 1 km deep in places.
