Shaoguan has a great looking station. All of China's new stations look artistic, clean and professional. The old stations look rugged and classic. Is Shaoguan on the Beijing-Hong Kong high speed railway?

Yes, along that line, but I'm not sure whether a single G train runs from Beijing to Guangzhou yet.

You're talking about a non-stop correct?

G79 goes from Beijing West to Guangzhou South with stops...

Beautiful pictures, little universe. I like especially Beijing South ones. Station, trains have a nice sterile look. Good captures.

There are 3 such trains: G71, G79 and G81.
G79 has 4 stops (Shijiazhuang, Zhengzhou, Wuhan, Changsha).
G71 has 14 stops between Beijing and Guangzhou and goes on to Longhua. G81 has 12 stops between Beijing and Guangzhou.
Between Changsha and Guangzhou, G71 stops at Hengshan, Hengyang, Leiyang and Chenzhou. G81 stops at Zhuzhou, Hengshan, Hengyang and Shaoguan. So Shaoguan has 1 direct train daily from Beijing.

How is the progress of Futian Station?

How well maintained are the stations, in terms of regular cleaning and upkeep?

I would say most are maintained very well, there are cleaning crew roaming the station constantly and in public restrooms at large stations such as Hongqiao or Guangzhou South a cleaning staff is always stationed there. Stations such as Hongqiao which is three years old does show some sign of age too, for example there are light bulbs that are out but not replaced, and some tiles are cracked. Nothing serious though, I'd say the station is extremely well built considering the passenger traffic that goes through it everyday.

The only thing I don't like is that people smoke in restroom of the stations, while it rarely happens in airports.
