Note 2
The Beijing to Ulan Bataar (and reverse) train service is operated by the Mongolian Railways one year and then the Chinese Railways the following year. They switch over at the end of May each year and the actual days of operation can also change.  From May 2013 to May 2014 (and hopefully May 2015 to May 2016), the Chinese Railways operate the main all-year-round service with train 23 from Beijing to Ulan Bator operating every Tuesday and train 24 from Ulan Bator to Beijing operating every Thursday. 

The Mongolians then run an additional weekly departure during the summer period from late June to early September, again designated train 24, from Ulan Bator to Beijing running on Saturdays and train 23 from Beijing to Ulan Bator also running on Mondays. 

From May 2014 to May 2015 the Mongolian Railways will run the main all-year-round service with train 23 from Beijing to Ulan Bator operating each Saturday and train 24 from Ulan Bator to Beijing operating each Thursday. 

The Chinese are expected (note the word ‘expected’) to run an additional weekly departure in summer from late June to early September, with train 24 from Ulan Bator to Beijing operating additionally on Saturdays and train 23 from Beijing to Ulan Bator running additionally on Wednesday.
