Luba, a Provodnitsa (Carriage Attendent) on the 340 Moscow-Chita (a five day train journey), Omsk Station 
All Russian long distance trains have a pair of provodnitsas in every carriage, whose job it is to check passengers’ tickets and passports before boarding, keep the carriage clean and orderly, hand out bedding and check the samovar always has hot water.
