The "new" CRH Danyang Railway Station

Danyang Railway Station (simplified Chinese: 丹阳站; traditional Chinese: 丹陽站; pinyin: Dānyáng zhàn) (IATA: DYN) is a railway station on the Jinghu and Shanghai-Nanjing Intercity railways. The station is located in Danyang City, Zhenjiang, Jiangsu, China. "Danyang Railway Station" now refers to two separate, adjacent, but unconnected stations that are situated on either side of parallel regular and high-speed tracks. The "old" station serves regular trains, while the "new" station (referred to by locals as "大火车站" or "big train station") serves high-speed trains on the Shanghai-Nanjing Intercity High-Speed Railway. This 'fast' rail line is the beginning of the Danyang–Kunshan Grand Bridge the longest bridge in the world.
