Nice design !

Looks like China is using all types of technology.
They can run on the same tracks and power supply is not an issue. They both have to have multiple power supply capabilities anyway so I would imagine it's not a problem to convert a design for any network. I believe it's generally 25kV AC though.

The new CRH (China Railway High-speed) bullet train, which has a top speed of 250 kph (155 mph), would cut the journey time on the key Beijing-Shanghai route from nine hours to five. [Reuters]
I was under the impression these trains could travel faster than this. What limits the speed to 250 kph? Is it the capabilities of the train or the track? Can these trains run at faster speeds if used on dedicated HSR tracks?

Impressive architecture, although for such a large station there do seem to be very few tracks!

from http://www.railway-technology.com/projects/beijing/

"The Beijing-Shanghai high-speed line will have 24 stations, including Tianjin, Jinan, Xuzhou, Bengbu and Nanjing.

The alignment is designed for 350km/h operation, although the initial design top speed has been set at 300km/h (186mph)"

It's more than likely Reuters are quoting the initial service speed. The Chinese intend to reck up the speed. I think the trains will go a bit faster, but there's so much to do first. Going from 250kph to 350kph they'll need to draw twice as much juice from the power network, plus they'll be expanding the service. I think the slightly low 250kph is just because it's better to walk before you can run.

Hohhot has a population of 2.5 million and Inner Mongolia has a population of over 23 million.

Anyways the station doesn't look that big.
