The Siberian village of Frantsevo was left stranded when a logging company began tearing up the little-used railroad tracks. Now the only way for villagers to buy groceries or pick up mail is to travel to the nearest town on a wagon towed by a tractor. Melani Bachina of RFE/RL's Russian Service joined the villagers heading home on a mud path through the forest.
