China Train Stations
China has over 5,500 railway stations for passengers use along its 77,000 miles (124,000 kilometers) long rail lines.
The early-built China train stations are usually located in the center of the city or town, operating non-bullet trains and some also operating a few bullet ones. The newly-built railway stations are generally located far from the city center and specialized in high speed trains, such as Beijing South, Shanghai Hongqiao, and Xian North; but they mostly can be reached by subway.
A train station in China usually consists of one or two squares and a terminal building, inside which ticket offices, waiting rooms, boarding gates, platforms and some affiliated facilities like toilets, hot drinking water, restaurants, and bilingual direction boards are provided.
Beijing-Harbin High Speed Train:
The Beijing-Harbin High Speed Train can finish the 771 miles (1,241 km) distance in about 6.5 - 8.5 hours. At present, there are 6 pairs of bullet trains per day running between the two cities, passing through major cities including Qinhuangdao, Jinzhou, Shenyang, Tieling and Changchun.
The opening of this rail line has brought great convenience for passengers to northeast China, especially for those attending the Harbin Ice and Snow Festival.
