Train 19/20 Vostok train (translated as the East) began operating on Moscow to Beijing route in 2001. It is a Trans-Manchurian train and therefore does not pass through Mongolia. The train covers 8961 km in 6 days. Vostok train is quite modern with comfortable 1st and 2nd class compartments and a good restaurant.
Wheels are changed on the boarder between Russia and China. Passport control takes place in Zabaikalsk and Manchzhuria and takes approximately 10 hours.
Russ rail helped me plan and book a rail journey from Beijing to Moscow. They answered any questions without delay and were extremely patient with my very frequent additional questions and a number of changes I had to make before finally booking. It was a great trip - also thanks to the team at Russian Rail!
