    Interesting list … tempted to try Emeryville to Chicago since I am currently in the SF area :) may be rent a car and come back via Route 66.

    Not sure of the Diburgarh to Kanyakumari train ride … I never really enjoyed traveling in trains in India.

    Interesting website … !

    I love traveling in the trains and Trains in my country(India) are lifelines.
    So i was curious to know longest train routes, i was aware of Dibrugarh-Kannaiyakumari and Lhasa train but the Moscow-Vladivostok route is a useful addition to my knowledge.
    Interesting list!!

    Two times a month a coach to Pyonyang is added to the Moscow to Vladivostok train, passing the 10k km…..

    @Bart : yes, furthermore, that train begins its route in Kiev, Ukraine : the Kiev-Pyongyang route is thus the longest direct train journey of the world. Note that it is normally impossible to make such a trip for any tourist, but one guy has done it : http://vienna-pyongyang.blogspot.be/

    My journey was delhi to Diburgarh … I never travel from Dibrugarh to Kaniyakumari from this train. But really I enjoyed traveling in trains in India.

    I traveled on Himsagar Express train from Kaniyakumari (Lands End)in deep South India to Jammu Tawi in Kashmir. It took 72 hours. I think it used to be the longest distance in India by train in India in 2008. Also, I traveled on Guwahati Express from Dwarka in western Gujarat to Guwahati, in Assam, it took almost 70 hours, with a 4 hour delay. I traveled in Indian long distance trains for 5 weeks back in 2008. Had wonderful time, and was very exciting. My next train travel goal: Trans-Siberian train from Moscow to Vladisvostok. (This is 7 days (6 nights).
