Record #165080:

Schemes for a trans-Siberian railway / Baron A. de Bieberstein.

Title: Schemes for a trans-Siberian railway / Baron A. de Bieberstein.
Author(s): Bieberstein, A. de,
Date: 1888.
In: Royal Geographical Society. Proceedings. (1888.), New series 10(4) (1888)
Abstract: Short note confirms two schemes under discussion; the more northerly, shorter route (Iscim, Omsk, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Nijni-Ufimsk, Irkutsk) would cross marshy and comparatively poor region, containing rivers of little commercial use. The longer, more favoured southerly route via Orenburg, Akmolinsk, Minussinsk, Abatoni, to Vladivostok, would cross fertile and mineral-rich land, attracting colonists from neighbouring countries. Latter scheme supported by Rear-Admiral Kopitoff, commander of Russian squadron in the Pacific.
