I like how the Yujiapu station is going to be underground.


Qingdaobei station looks phenomenal.

Do those stations only serve HSR or conventional or even famous Chinese steam trains?

Nothing beats Chinese steam trains travelling at 380 kph.

An American friend who came here this year told me how surprised he was when he saw HSR trains without people sitting on the roofs like he imagined there would be. When quizzed further he explained the photos of Chinese trains always had passengers on top of the train and assumed HSR was no exception.

Question: What kind of trains do HSR stations serve?

Answer: I don't know that's a difficult one.

Is he still your friend? I do hope you fired him and found a more intelligent replacement.

haha....that is a good question though. Some railway stations like Beijingxi and Wuhan Railway Station server HSR and conventional trains. I guess the only exclusively HSR railway stations are the small 2-4 platform stations along the high speed line....then again Kunshannan station would probably be an example of a bigger station that's HSR only.


On another topic do conventional trains still run between Shanghai and Nanjing?

Yes.
On 19th January, I see 9 trains out of the 248 between Shanghai and Nanjing are neither D nor G. 1 of them is L, 1 is T, the other 7 are K.

I'd like to see one of those photos. I've seen photos of people sitting on the roof in most other countries (yes, even England and US) but never China, even out in the wops where there's no electric wires.

I think we may be able to find pictures of people sitting on top of trains in China during the culture revolution, but nothing in the past 40 years.

Diaobingshan of Liaoning Province has the last group of steam trains, most of which are in its famous steam train museum. I heard many trains lovers go there every year to take running steam train pictures.

Dont like cinese rail stations. They look like bland airports.
