Second Class - Hard sleeper cabin
In a second class sleeper carriage, also known as "Coupe", there are four berths in each compartment with 36 people in each carriage; two lower and two upper ones. The door can be locked and by the window, there is a table.
There are communal toilets and wash-basin at both ends of each carriage Second class tends to be very social with cabin doors left open during the day and people chatting in the corridors, whereas in first class there is a little more space in the cabin and so you tend to keep the door closed.
Train attendant give you blanket with bedding. In Chinese train, it is bit more comfortable than Russian and Mongolian trains.
Hot water boiler has in ends of carriage.
Second Class Sleeping Carriage
*Train #362 has only second class carriages with 4 berths in 1 cabin. It is possible to buy an extra berth each to give two people sole occupancy of a second class compartment.
*On the trains there is normally a plug on the corridor (so the provodnitsa can vacuum the carpet!) and in first class there may be a plug in your cabin. Electricity is 220 v AC voltages. You will need a European type power plug with two round pins (similar to the two pin round plug in China as well) Often the power on the train is switched off and we have heard of entrepreneurial conductors charging portable devices in their cabin overnight, for a price.
