Like other parts of China, There were two toilets available at every end of a car. On one side is an Asian style toilet and on the other side is a Western-style toilet. Overall they keep it very clean and toilet paper is available. but please never use it at station area, unless you were very emergency.
There are neat bathrooms and sink areas in the Tibet train. The attendants always keep the sink areas reasonably clean. Each sink area is equipped with three sinks which have the push type water faucet. The sink areas are always busy in the morning because it is shared by 32 people. It is better to buy a towel at a supermarket before you get on the train for there is no toiletries and hygienes supply on Tibet train.
The trains today is full of humanized design, which is not only to meet the needs of passengers but also to highlight a kind of culture. Tibet Train toilet is made of glass fibre reinforced plastic structure, marble countertop, emergency call button, baby care desk, baby diaper bed and folding armrest.
Since the 1990s, the railway has invested in large-scale transformation of equipment and facilities, and “shantytown Valet” has become history. A large number of green cars have been put into use, and the toilets on the trains have also changed.
At the end of the 1990s, toilet urinals began to be made of hard materials such as plastic steel for better comfort. At the beginning of this century, the integrated stainless steel straight toilet began to be used on the express train.
In this century, passenger trains are constantly updated, various new types of trains are emerging, equipment and facilities are more and more advanced, and a new type of toilet appears. This kind of toilet integrates machine, electricity, gas, liquid and vacuum. After passengers use it, a small amount of water will be ejected from the toilet with a slight press of the button, and a huge vacuum suction will be generated to suck the dirt and odor into the “dung box” at the bottom of the carriage, so as to keep the train toilet clean and tidy. When the train arrives at the terminal, it will be transported away by the dump truck. So far, “the train no longer urinates everywhere” has become a reality.
With the birth of the toilet, there are toilets for the disabled. The wheelchair can be pushed indirectly. The space is spacious, with armrest and washbasin. The personalized design of the toilet for the disabled is well received by passengers.
The toilet environment has been greatly improved. There are faucets and washbasins, fragrant balls, toilet paper buckets and cleaning paper in the toilets. There is a net pocket behind the door, which is convenient for passengers to hang bags. Next to the toilet, it is equipped with a washroom, hand sanitiser, towel, hanging rack and washing mirror, all for the sake of passengers.
