Day 1, thirteen hours after we leave Beijing the train pulls to a shuddering halt at Erlian, at the very edge of the PRC. The scenery since Beijing has been rather scarred by industry, but it's improving.
The train bogeys are changed here as Mongolia uses a different track gauge to China so we've been let off the train for a few hours while the bogeys were changed. Took the opportunity to invest in some duty-free vodka (may be useful for bribing Russians). At five minutes to midnight, the train pulls out of Erlian to rousing music from the platform loudspeakers.
