In terms of the tickets I am interested in the way the tickets look like, the schedule I'd be satisfied with just text version So whatever physical stuff you might have I'll be very interested in seeing! Especially the Ukrainian ticekt to Moscow which you will get in Kiev, but of course that will not come until later Thanks and good luck!

Have a question for all those that have travelled on the Trans Sib ~ Ziv, Andy and Allen.
Tea is mentioned a lot and we are champion tea drinkers. Is there tea on board or should we bring it with us? and if it's on board is it black tea and is it loose or tea bags?
Part 2. Is it possible to get milk on board, can we say buy it from the restaurant or are there small sealed tubs available on the train or to buy in Moscow? If there's no milk available, did you all drink black tea?
Of course this is one of the more important aspects of this journey so hope someone can help us out.

Thanks Andy. Did you see any form of milk available on the platforms or the train?

Thanks Ed, Rosie had milk powder in hand so we're covered for a while. We'll also be taking mucho Yorkshire teabags too certainly enough for a week or so on the train.
Good to hear that milk is sometimes available from kiosks, what do Russians use on cereals? Ruth is bringing dried noodles and stuff from Taiwan, sounds like we could have a party as I'm taking some French wine... yes we are supposed to be travelling light.
Thanks again Ziv

In the event that one of the Trans Sib riders reads this I'd like to ask a silly question, does the Rossiya have a train whistle?
For both of us the most evocative part of any Amtrak or US freight train is the whistle, whether we are on-board or driving near a rail line. Every time we start an Amtrak journey it's always hearing the first whistle that adds that bit of anticipation and excitement, that we really are on another Amtrak train.
So being curious I was wondering if there is a Russian version of the Amtrak whistle?
