What are the toilets like on the train when travelling on a tour?

The toilets on the train are quitbasic but clean with a toilet and wash basin at each end of the carriage.  

In newer carriages there may be bio toilets, which can be used during train stops.  

In older carriages the toilets empty directly onto the track. Because of this. they will be closed 10 minutes either side of each stop, and up to 45 minutes before and after any border crossings. As a border crossing can take a couple of hours it is better to go in plenty of time before you arrive! 

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee before you travel which type of carriage you are likely to get; though you can improve your chances of a modern toilet by booking a train with a lower number, as these tend to be newer trains. 

While the water is drinking water, we recommend that you do not use the water from the basin in the toilet for brushing your teeth and instead use bottled water.
