Changing the Bogies - the wheel units - is supposedly one of the highlights of the Russian rail experience. Russia and Mongolia use a different rail gauge to the rest of the world, hence the need to raise the carriages, unbolt the wheels and slip a new set under the entire string of carriages. Note: It takes about two hours and you can't use the toilets while work is in progress.
