One branch of the Trans-Siberian Railway goes around Mongolia to China and is called Trans-Manchurian railway, and the other branch goes through Mongolia (Ulan-Bataar) to China. The final destination for both is Beijing. Trans-Siberian is the longest railway in the world and probably one of the most interesting and tough: imagine riding in the train for six days seeing various landscapes pass in front of your eyes... Only this way one can see the transformation from West to East (or vice versa) smoothly and feel the distance and the land.
The Channel Tunnel (French: le tunnel sous la Manche) is a 51.5km (31 mile) long rail tunnel beneath the English Channel at the Straits of Dover, connecting Folkestone, Kent in England to Coquelles near Calais in northern France. A long-standing and very expensive megaproject that saw several false starts, it was finally completed in 1994. It is the second-longest rail tunnel in the world, with the Seikan Tunnel in Japan being longer, but the undersea section of 39km (24 miles) is the longest undersea tunnel in the world. It is operated by Eurotunnel. Before and during construction it was widely known by the nickname Chunnel.
The Orient Express was the name of a long-distance passenger train originally operated by the Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits. Its route has changed many times, and several routes have in the past concurrently used the name. Although the original Orient Express was simply a regular international railway service, the name has become synonymous with intrigue and luxury travel. The current Orient Express runs from Paris to Vienna. It is expected to be discontinued on June 9, 2007, with the inauguration of the LGV Est.

Amtrak (AAR reporting marks AMTK and AMTZ) is the brand name of the National Railroad Passenger Corporation, created on May 1, 1971, as the United States' intercity passenger train system. "Amtrak" is a portmanteau of the words "American" and "track". Amtrak is a quasi-governmental agency; all of its preferred stock is owned by the federal government. The members of its board of directors are appointed by the President of the United States, and are subject to confirmation by the United States Senate. Some common stock is held by the private railroads that transferred their passenger service to Amtrak in 1971. Though Amtrak stock does not pay dividends and is not routinely traded, a small number of private investors have purchased Amtrak stock from its original owners.
RENFE (Red Nacional de Ferrocarriles; Spanish National Railway Network) is Spain's national railway operator. The word Renfe has come to mean Main Train Station in Spanish maps, directories and road signs, although this usage is not documented in Spanish dictionaries. RENFE operates 15,000 km of Spanish railways. Most of this network is broad gauge (1668 mm), the same as in Portugal but wider than in France and most of Europe. The newer High-Speed network AVE is European gauge but not yet connected with the European railway system.
