What is the longest railway in the world?
I think it is the Trans Siberian running through Russia, but I need conformation. _____ The Trans-Siberian Railway is definitely the longest railway in the world. It starts at Moscow and 9,289 km and seven days later, it finishes in Vladivostok. There are a great many intersecting and parallel railways that are associated with it including the Trans-Manchurian and the Trans-Mongolian, The BAM and Little BAM. The Trans-Siberian Railway is a miracle of modern engineering through an extremely hostile environment. Trans-Siberian Handbook by Bryn Thomas.

The Indian Pacific is a passenger rail service running between Perth and Sydney, Australia. This section was built as narrow gauge, and even when it was converted to standar…d gauge in 1968 there was a change of locomotives and train crew at Kalgoorlie, from Westrail to Australian National Railways. From there it continues east across the Nullarbor Plain on the Trans-Australian Railway to Port Augusta. This railway was built as standard gauge, completed in 1917 as part of the promises made to Western Australia on federation in 1901. The section included the longest stretch of straight railway track in the world at that time (478 km) around Cook.

A 78-mile stretch of railroad runs straight and uninterrupted from Arcadia to Old Hundred, NC, USA, and is the longest straight run of railroad track in the world. ++ That… may be the longest straight in America, but the world 's longest is in Australia. It's about 360 miles long, across the Nullarbor Plain (a flat desert). To counteract the monotony and risk of falling asleep, at one time at least the locomotives where fitted with timers that sounded an alarm every half-hour, and if not cancelled by the driver within a certain time would cut the power.
