Trans-Mongolian Railway - Do I need a Visa

Could anybody advise as to what kind of Visa I would need for Mongolia if I'm taking the Trans-Mongolian railway from Russia to China? I was told I need a transit visa. Can anybody confirm this and/or offer any advice they may have or have experienced?

Thank you in advance.

<<from Russia to China?>>

Assuming you hold a Canadian passport then yes you need a visa to travel through Russia, you can get a transit visa valid for up to 10 days, but for this you'd need your train tickets and a visa for Mongolia in place before you can apply.

Its simpler just to get a regular tourist visa.
