Mr Evan Fisherman asked: Was there rail service in that part of Ukraine
at the end of the 19th century/early 20th century? Can anyone provide
a useful guide to rail service in Russia during that period?
One of the best books about Railways guide is the "Bradshw's August
1914 continental Guide" or the oldest edition in the year 1887 .
In 1914 the railway system of Europe was largely complete, and it was
also the peak development of the European railway.
In the book of Bradshw's you can find all the railways timetables of
Europe and the Middle East included Russia.
The first train in Russia was on the rail in the year 1837
and the first line between Moscow and St Petersburg was build in 1851.
The first part of the Trans-Siberian line was open in the year 1891
and in 1916 it was finished.
in the end of the 19 century was Russia full with railway system and
it work very well.
