Slightly more than half of the trains stop at Guangzhou North.

Not yet but Line 2 southern extension it will be open in middle of this year around September before the Asian Games. The Guangzhou–Zhuhai Intercity Mass Rapid Transit is should so be operational soon.

More photos, please!

I can't believe how quickly the station went up!

I was in Guangzhou a few years ago, great city. I'd love to go back.

Interesting look into security features of China railway tunnels. It's dissapointing to see such low security standards for such an advanced railway: no intermediate emergency escape options (for about 4 km long tunnel), lack of service tube, no hand railings, bad and dangerous pavement for pedestrians, entrances without any emergency and service platforms etc.

I think at least safety rooms do exist here, see those doors in the "caverns"? The pavement looks ordinary to me. Also there seems to be a lot of monitoring devices. A request (a bit OT): could anyone transcribe that piece of poetry in normal chinese fonts for me?

Those picture wrer taken in Summer, 2009. At that time, the railway was under construction. Now, thousands of secuity guards are working on the railway everyday, it is very hard to get into the tunnel.

OK, in half a year a lot can be installed, most security equipment is usually installed at the end. I work in designing those sort of stuff, so I was watching photos in more critical matter than most other people. It would be nice to see also pictures of finished stuff.

>>> I think at least safety rooms do exist here, see those doors in the "caverns"?
They don't look as emergency exit doors, usually found in new (european) railway tunnels.

He didn't just say it's a "railport" (which I think can refer to the fact that it's in the outskirts (and I'd add it could not have been otherwise in view of the size)) he also said it's "user-unfriendly", that's why I asked him to elaborate.
