Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At gauge change and voltage change points resp. borders certainly, at main stations and along the route when an express train had to pass, probably. Russian Railways has a project named "Trans-Siberian in Seven Days", which aims to bring down container train times from 14 days in 2008 to 7 days in 2012, and the main improvements needed are better organisation, signalling and station operation.
