There seems to be a complex set of unwritten rules and etiquette regarding acceptable behaviour on the train, but given that our Russian is limited to 'hello', 'thank you' and the numbers 1 to 10, we're slow to pick up on much of it. Smoking in non-smoking areas, trailing power cords across the corridor, playing loud music and selling nick-nacks to other passengers all seem to be OK. But we've already been told off for standing in the wrong carriage, not smoking in the smoking area and failing to produce the towel belonging to our compartment's previous occupant.
