Is it my perception or does the China HSR near NK border have Korean signboard?

East Coast line stations

As a contrast to the glitzy big city stations, some places on the Ningbo-Xiamen line just happen to be close to 20km from a station either side. So they get a station like it or not. Luoyang is building a ginormous area of hirise apartments and office blocks to justify its existence, most of the functional shops that sell anything in the town are selling paint, wallpaper, plumbing fixtures...



Houmen has a freeway interchange which is visible, a golf course, conference center and army camp which are all not visible, and nothing else. For this photo we are standing on the G324 highway.

Houmen station is meant to serve not only the town, but also Haifeng county in general. As well as nearby areas in Huidong county.

The largest ones are Xian and Zhengzhou. They both have 32 high speed dedicated tracks. Their buildings span more than half a kilometer.

Hangzhou south railway station to be put into use in late 2017


Photo taken on June 29, 2017 shows the roof-mounted photovoltaic power system in the south railway station of Hangzhou




Staff members conduct on-grid adjustment and testing of the roof-mounted photovoltaic power system in the south railway station of Hangzhou, capital of east China's Zhejiang Province, June 29, 2017. The system, which covers about 52,000 square meters and has a total installed capacity of 4.2 megawatts, has passed quality acceptance on Thursday. The Hangzhou south railway station is expected to put into use at the end of 2017.

I love how the high speed railway stations all have a unique design yet also conform to a certain stylish standard. It never gets boring.

Some even have a theme behind their design.

Might be the case here, as well. Is Hangzhou the box capital of China?

If we are talking about architectural designs I think Shenzhen is the box capital of China.

Glad to see those solar panels on the roof! Is this the first station with solar panel roof? -- Hope it will be implemented at a wider scale.
On a separate note, there is also research to catch and conserve the energy while trains approach/depart the stations to reuse.

That is regenerative braking and is nothing new. Storing the energy in graphene supercapacitors is, and CRRC has developed and deployed them in trains. The technology reuses 85 percent of the energy generated in braking.
