The train from Moscow was a fantastic experience. After 6 days and nights its fair to say that you're desperate for a shower as the train has little in the way of facilities, however if asked would I do it again - the answer is yes and probably in the middle of winter!! Make sure you book your train tickets to leave Beijung as soon as you arrive! I had the option to leave in 2 days or 6 days!!
Walking is best as with most cities however its easy to hail a cab as the flag fall is only about Sterling 1 and this lasts about 5 km's!
The trains from Beijing West railway station are mainly to south and west of China. you'd better go there by taxi.
Beijing Railway station has lot of trains from beijng to mainly North and Northeast parts of China. The best way to arrived there is by subway.

Buy your train tickets from Beijing to other cities from one of the ticket agencies around the city. The one in Xizhimen is the closest for anyone living in the northwestern part of Beijing.
we arrived in Beijing at 5.30 h in the morning after another three days and nights on the Transsiberian Railway.
The trainstation is a huge complex and I was happy to have a guide to follow!
