    The price of the train ticket depends on the class of the train. I can give you a quick+rough estimate only because my tariff is international (much higher than domestic) and for some unknown reason I can't access the http://www.temirzholy.kz

    In any case - according to what I see - the Alma-ata1 to Astana is 47.40 Euro in second class and you would want to add maybe 15 Euro for the reservation ("platskarta") - no more. You will land up paying much less than that because what I see here is a "rip-off East-West international tariff".

    To get the idea how Kazakh trains look like open the "railfan" picture database

    railfaneurope.net/pix/kz/pix...

    They are fairly similar to Russian or some older Chinese trains.

    I would never get the idea to use a bus - that's well over 1300 km torture. Train is much more comfortable.
