Even if a station is at a village rather than at a neighbourhood, villages exist not only in townships, but also in towns and subdistricts. Fuding and Fuan are both cities, while being parts of Ningde city.
There is a great deal of people. Ningde has 2,82 million people.
Does Ningde have any major centres of people? Or are these 2,82 million people scattered evenly in villages, so that very few of them can reach a station?

30 km apart is a lot. For a village in between stations, 15 km walk in either direction.

And people have plenty of means of transportation to get to either stations.

HSR Cancellations by Typhoon

Typhoon "Suli" has caused cancellations of D & G trains between Wenzhou and Xiamen. Without a thorough check the list looks like total closure to passenger traffic.

Hard to believe it's Fuzhou from the satellite picture, where no HSR exists not long ago.

I'm a wet rag. I hate these studio mockup photos. They could have shown us one more train on the center double track. I'll let them off the sixth line of the junction 'cos that's invisible in a tunnel under the photographer's feet. There's nothing in the current timetable has two northbounds departing Fuzhou South at the same time. And certainly nothing that has two inbounds at the same time occupying the single track into Fuzhou Central.

I guess it depends on which stations they stop and the train schedule.
It turned out that G128 stopped at 7 stations and G3 stopped at one (Nanjing South) on the trip.

G128 Shanghai Hongqiao to Beijing South







Arrived Beijing


G3 Beijing South to Shanghai Hongqiao

Subway at Beijing South


HSR map at Beijing South




Arrived Shanghai

A problem with shops in the exit waiting halls of HSR stations accessible with departing tickets alone is that unless the purchases are eaten at the station, they need to be carried as luggage on the HSR.

Are the shops in the generally accessible parts of HSR stations convenient in their choice of goods and pricing, compared to the shops elsewhere around the city?

And are the metro lines 2, 10 and 4 comfortable with luggage?

Shanghai's subway trains are not equipped with luggage racks. Line 2 is especially crowded since it is a major artery running W-E, passing through Nanjing East Road and the financial district in Pudong.

Thanks for that
I was thinking of the video publicity for HSR that shows swooping shots of opposing trains passing on double tracks. Some of those shots must have been posed or contrived, or else somebody spent an awful long time perched on a cherrypicker camera trigger finger itching ...

Traveler's tip:
Shanghai is always very crowded near the entrance, far side of this photo.

For more room and shorter food lines, go to the far side of the station up on the mezzanine.

proof that people are lazy and don't want to walk far. Perhaps a reason to have entrances on both sizes to distribute the load.
