JULY 30, 2008  THIS IS A GROSSLY OUTDATED PAGE. PRICES ARE NOW UP AT LEAST TWICE. WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS RUSSIAN RAILROAD TICKETS CAN NOW BE OBTAINED FROM WESTERN AGENTS AT A MINIMAL SURCHARGE, SO BUYING THEM HERE FROM YOU IS NOT WORTH THE HASSLE. SERVICE DISCONTINUED UNLESS THE SITUATION REALLY WARRANTS MY GETTING YOU YOUR TICKETS. - PV
