100 years of the Trans-Siberian railway: Fascinating pictures chart the growth of the longest train line in the world
Plans for the Trans-Siberian railway were announced in Russia in 1891 but it wasn't completed until 1916
The world's longest train track, it stretches more than 5,700 miles and crosses eight time zones on its way
Construction workers in the late 1800s had to battle freezing temperatures, bandits and tiger attacks

Today, a journey across Russia's Trans-Siberian railway takes about a week.
But exactly 100 years ago, upon its official completion, the trip took almost a month because the train trundled along at 20 miles an hour.
Now the longest train line in the world, stretching more than 5,700 miles from Moscow to Vladivostok, the Trans-Siberian railway crosses two continents, 80 towns and cities, 16 large rivers and eight time zones.
Here, MailOnline Travel takes a look back over a century of the Trans-Siberian's history with a series of fascinating pictures.
