Erlian / Erenhot Trains / Buses - Info RequiredIs there an update to the train and bus schedules and the connecting locations?
I want to go to Huashan from Ulaanbaatar on Sunday. If this connection is not possible, I would like to either take a train there from Erlian / Erenhot (border) or from Datong.
I've been told that there is a train that leaves Ulaanbaatar on Sunday around 07:10am. It goes direct to Beijing.
There is a train that leaves Ulaanbaatar on Sunday around 08:30pm. It stops in Erlian / Erenhot, but I don't know of any further stops it makes (if it goes to Datong or Huashan).
I tried these sites but there is no station/stop for Elian or Erenhot to choose from:
Can anyone provide up-to-date information on the trains and buses passing through Erlian / Erenhot, their schedule and where they are going (into China, not Mongolia)?
Also, what are the border opening times and when is it possible to pass through?

1I took a sleeper bus from Erlian to Beijing. It was the last departure of the day on that route, leaving at 3:30pm and reaching Beijing at around 2:00am the next day. The bus didn't stop anywhere along the way, except for dinner at a roadside stop. It did not pass through Datong. This was in March 2012.

Sorry, I don't know the answers to your other questions.

3@ Egjeg, do you remember where did your bus from Erlian to Beijing arrived? You say the south part of Beijing, was it Muxiyuan bus station?
