Ride the Trans-Siberian Railway from the Comfort of Your Desk

Google Maps has assembled a series of about 40 YouTube videos which apparently cover the entire distance from Moscow to Vladivostok.  Thankfully you can jump instantly and randomly from one segment of the trip to another either by clicking on a different selection or dragging the cursor on the map, which moves in sync with the videos.  The map beneath the video can be zoomed, switched from satellite to terrain mode, and dragged like any Google Map.  All of the segments I visited were filmed in daylight.  While viewing the videos, you can select an audio background of railroad sounds, Russian music, or recitations of Russian literature.
