I went and was stunned! My first thought was - I was wrong train. On second thought, I'm in Europe and on the route, "Paris - Nice" instead of "Moscow - Adler." It is far from what those in Russia began to make such cars?

All cars are equipped with three portable toilets that can be used during stops. Someone reading such statistics. In normal compartment car 36 seats and 2 toilets. It turns 1 toilet for 18 passengers. The two-storey car 64 seats and 3 toilets - 1 toilet for 21 passengers. Allegedly, the toilets will be loaded on 15%.

I want to argue! With three toilets and full wagon even once in 25 hours I did not have to wait in line. Always let loose was one toilet. Author statistics did not realize that the toilets are working during stops.
