Car by train from Moscow to Central Asia?

Post by oddvaro »

Are there any car-carriers on trains from Russia to Uzbekistan or Kazakhstan? How to book and how much does it cost? We will drive from northern Norway to Central Asia through Russia but putting the car on a train for part of the journey sounds temping.

There are no car-carrying passenger trains like in some European countries. If you want to put a lot of money and effort in it, it might be possible to send the car as freight on a cargo train. I wouldn't really advise it though.
