The book:

Ukraine: A Historical Atlas
Paul Magosci

has a map of the development of rail lines in Ukraine including the years they opened.  Hopefully your local library (perhaps nearest University library) has a copy.

DanW.Wagner sent me a photo of train station in Zhitomir:

Yes, that IS the picture that I have. HORSES??  and I thought it was a "regular" train. hah.
I just read the following this morning, on Wiki: 
The Tsarskoye Selo Railway line was officially opened on 30 October 1837, when an 8-carriage train was hauled by a steam locomotive between Saint Petersburg and Tsarskoye Selo. Until the construction of the Moscow – Saint Petersburg Railway in 1851, it was the only passenger train line in Russia.[3] In 1899 it was merged into the Moscow-Windau-Rybinsk Railways and now forms part of the Oktyabrskaya Railway. 
>From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I found nothing on when the ENGINE pulled trains came to Volhynia. Probably need to go to the library. 
Actually, some of you may not know this:
THERE IS A FREE DIGITAL LIBRARY ON THE INTERNET THAT CARRIES THOUSANDS OF BOOKS called internet archive digital library. www.archive.org 
This has lots on genealogy. 
If you have never been there, take a visit. And you don't have to whisper!
Guess I will try a search there to see what I can find on trains. Real trains!
