Ok at the risk of sounding silly , from which train station in Moscow does the Trans Mongolion railway leave from as there are quite a few railway stations there.
Also can tickets be bought from any station ( will be in Moscow soon and was thinking about finding out about the tickets)
These are quotes i've got from www.seat61.com
"Buying tickets for domestic Russian journeys at the ticket office is a practical option for most Russian domestic journeys, such as Moscow-Irkutsk or Irkutsk-Vladivostok or even Moscow-Vladivostok, especially if it wouldn't upset your plans to have to take a different train or travel a day later than planned if your first choice of train was fully booked. However, if you have limited time and a definite itinerary, pre-booking your trains via an agency is a better option, see the next section. Demand for the direct Moscow-Beijing and Moscow-Ulan Bator trains exceeds supply and these particular trains get fully-booked months ahead. This means you'll almost certainly have to use an agency if you want to travel on these direct trains"
And after some looking around on the net i think it leaves from Yaroslavsky station
It uses the Yaroslavsky Rail Terminal in Moscow.
Thanks for the info :-)
We are hoping to go towards mid October and will try to get the tickets when we go to Moscow next week. Failing that we will try an agency.
Any recommendations for a good agency?
