Moscow-Vladivostok: virtual journey on Google Maps
Videos of the entire Trans-Siberian Railway, shot out of train windows. Each video has its own YouTube page, which you can get to by clicking the link at the top left of the embedded videos, here or on the map page.
There are hours and hours of mind-numbing forests, of course, but there are also some very scenic sections. I suspected the stretch past Lake Baikal would be good, so I checked it out first.
Approaching the west end of the lake, coming down out of the mountains:
Skirting the south shore of the lake, almost at the water's edge. The best scenery starts at about 16:45, after a long station stop. Train buffs should check out the locomotive shop, starting at 13:40.

That really is nice footage around the lake. Very relaxing watching it.
