The Trans-Siberian Railroad is the worlds longest railroad. It is at least 6,000 miles long. This railroad crosses 8 time zones. The guage is wider in Russia than in Europe and China. The cargo on the train is packed in large steel boxes. Their were thousands of Russian peasants, convicts, and solders were enlisted or drafted to work on making the railroad. The climate and terrain, or physical features made the making of the railroad very difficult. The workers had to use explosives to break through rocks and cliffs.
