Which way: Europe to Japan via Siberia and back through Silk Route

Hi all

I'll be travelling from Dublin to Japan via Siberia and back through Silk Route to Istanbul. Journey should start beginning Sept 2017 and end mid Dec 2017

My question is this.

Should I start with Northern route and go back home via Southern route or vice versa. I love snow and would like to see as much of the Stans and Mongolia before roads are impassible. I'll be travelling by train all the way, where possible. Will not be flying at all

Thanks

I would do Central Asia first (was there October / November - 10 Centigrade in early November in Samarkand) , you don't want to be there in December when it is really cold, the transsib you can stay inside until Moscow and the train is very well heated (did it in January, at the Mongolian border it was - 55 Centigrade)
