4



In the 2nd Class, there are no separate compartments, just an open carriage.
The berths are grouped into nine cabins with no doors which contain six berths; two upper and two lower; plus two side berths over the corridor, one upper and one lower.

While a mattress, pillow and blanket is provided for each berth, pillow cases, sheets and covers are not and may be obtained for a nominal fee from the carriage attendant. Common storage space is below the lower berths inside the cabin, the lower side berth and above the door inside the cabin.


WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE TRAIN

Food and Water: You will find a samovar with boiling water on one end of the car, usually opposite the attendant’s compartment. If you bring your own water bottle, you can also refill it with drinkable water from the attendant.
While food is available for purchase in the dining car which is located in the middle of the train and from vendors roaming the halls, it can be overpriced and the selection may be limited. Almost on every station local people sell inexpensive and nice home-made food, so you won't be hungry. You may be better off bringing your own provisions, especially for a multi-day journey.
Electronics: Outlets for charging cell phones and the like are available in the hallways. Most carriages have fold-down seats so you can sit with your device as it charges, although it was not uncommon for people to leave theirs hanging unattended.
Toilets: Each carriage has a toilet on each end and they will be locked shortly before, during and shortly after most station stops (and border crossings if you’re heading into China or Mongolia). The toilet doors usually have a schedule showing these closures.
Shower: There are showers on the Russian trains but not the Mongolian or Chinese trains. On the trains that have showers, they can be found in the service wagon, which is adjoined to the restaurant car. It’s advised to take your soap, towel and flip flops.
Luggage: There is plenty of space to keep your luggage in the compartment, either in an overhead luggage storage area, or under a bed.
Money: Payments on board of the train are made in local currency only. Normally, you may be able to change US dollars in the train (conductor will do it or will find a dealer for you), but the rates are very low. So, it's better to have some local currency (Russia - rubles, China - yuans, Mongolia - tugriks) and the whole sum in US dollars. Dollars are very easy to exchange in Russia, Mongolia or China.
Safety and security on the train is a real priority. Every wagon has one or two staff members (provodniks / provodnitsas), who check the tickets, do the cleaning, take care of boiling water, and so on. Also the cabins can be locked from the inside and can only be opened from the outside with a key, so your luggage is always safe when you do venture out to explore the train.
