The Russian timetable conundrum

Russia is so big it has 8 time zones. 8 time zones !! (never mind the distance between Wyre Piddle and Waterley Bottoms MattC). This is causing a bit polava (or should I say Pavlova) currently in Russia.

After trying fruitlessly to figure out the plus 1 or minus 1 conundrum, I totally flumoxed myself. Then I thought about Einstein and now I am left like Dreyfus.

If I get on the train at 6am on the most Western point in Russia and then travelled through all 8 time zones at the speed of light to Vladivostock, what time would I arrive at ?

    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
    Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved

    Time Zone is irrelevant, it doesn't matter where you are in Russia the train is on Moscow time, which means despite it being teatime, your breakfast is now ready.
