en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longest_train_services

shallow_shoals is quite correct the Trans Siberian line from Moscow to Vladivostok at 9259km is the longest in the world with 67 stops and scheduled running time of 178 hours (just over a week).

India's Dibrugarh-Kanyakumari is at 10th place (4328km) and Australia's Sydney-Perth (4352km) is at 9th

Well, according to the Man in Seat 61 there is a once a week "through sleeper from Moscow to Pyongyang in North Korea, a considerably longer continuous train ride than Moscow-Vladivostock".

But that isn't the longest as there "is a through train from Donetsk and Kharkov in Ukraine to Vladivostock, and this appears to be the longest scheduled continuous train ride of them all".

P.S. looks like good old Wiki is wrong, again! ;-p

That Wiki page is also wrong for Europe, as it ignores the weekly Nice-Moscow train which is surely western Europe's longest.
