I took that route 17 years ago and there were showers. I think lack of Russian might have failed you there because shower is "hidden" in the bathroom and you have to ask controller to set it up for you and pay for it. I was riding in the regular car - 4 beds in the room, not a luxury one.

If you saw a metal box on the wall in the bathroom that looked like an electrical box and wondered what it was - that was the one.

I guess an advice for future travellers here would be to make a paper/save on their phone word "shower" in Russian ("душ") and try to come up to controller with it.

I feel like I could write a list of tips for people who do that trip.

Borrowed from French.

Fun fact: Turkish uses the same word.
