Train was pretty cool. Cost 499RMB (£38) for the first class journey of 14 hours. There were 4 beds in a room, each with it's own TV. Very comfortable. Played some cards and drank some beers, were unable to make much headway with the local guys we were sharing with.
They provided some plastic slippers, I wore mine to the bar carriage (got a few stares). Sat at the bar in the same seat as Jiang Zemin had previously (there was a pic of him sitting at the bar behind the bar and being served by the same girl who served me)
Arrived in Beijing at 8am.
