15Is the schedule for the electric train also available on the rzd website? Does the electric train from Ulan Ude to Baikalski Priboi run on a daily basis? If so, what is the schedule (outbound and return)?

16Hijacking this topic because I don't want to duplicate a title in the search, and the info in this one is exhausted.
I would like to travel on the Circum-Baikal train from Slyudyanka (Sljudjanka when search on RZD) to Port Baikal.
According to this page, the train runs on Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri @ 14:20. However, it doesn't say if this is the Tourist train or the Matanja
I read Ruth's links included in this topic. I've also read this topic on the forum, which in insightful, yet somewhat dated, so I don't know hoe reliable it is. It also doesn't mention anything about the train schedules in the Winter.
I've been told by my hostel receptionist here in Irkutsk that the train only runs on weekends. The train doesn't run as regularly in the Winter season, However, I have no other source of information on taking the train during the Winter to contest this.
Ideally, I want to take the Matanja, but cannot find the information on RZD because the "Port Baikal" station does not exist in the Station Search functionality.
Does anyone know the days and times of this train and if it is still currently running? Is the ferry from Port Baikal to Listvyanka also running?
