Hi,

are you talking about car-carrying passenger night trains like they exist in some countries in Europe? To the extent of my knowledge, they do not exist anywhere in the former Soviet Union. It might be possible to send the car as freight on cargo trains, although I have no further information on this. You might want to (have someone) contact Kazakh Railways via E-Mail, preferably in Russian or Kazakh language. Anyway, let us know what you found out, I'm curious as well :)

Yes, I'm talking about send car on cargo train, it maybe cheapest to drive but 3000km of desert could be boring. I ll Ask a kazak friend if he Can find information about this.

Hi,

I'm looking into this as well. Cheapest I've found yet is 2500 euros. I think I've emailed about 30 companies by now, so a lot.

Via truck is still the only possibility I have found. Train is almost certainly cheaper, but it is difficult to arrange if it's for private use.

I will continue looking, so I will let you know if I found something cheaper. Please do the same.

Kind regards,

Ewald

Hi

Three things to know
The kazak railway (https://www.railways.kz/) don't do this service
The msc company (https://www.msc.com) present in almaty don't do this service (by train), only by plane and sea.
And the last , globallink (http://globalinklogistics.com) present in almaty, tell me between 2000 and 3000$ to put the car on a truck to do Almaty - Kiev.

This are the only info i Can share because it's hard to get some.

Good luck
