BAM. From Tayshet to Sovetskaya Gavan.

In July 2024, Russia celebrates 50 years since the construction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline, the largest infrastructure project of the 20th century.
In 2019, the author of the project drove the entire highway from Taishet to Sovetskaya Gavan, where he stopped at all important stations, filmed both the railway and how people live on BAM now. In July of the same year, 2019, I was lucky enough to ride on a train with BAM veterans, meetings and conversations with whom I remembered for a long time.
