Nanjing Railway Station (Chinese: 南京站; pinyin: Nánjīng Zhàn) is a major railway station of Nanjing, Jiangsu, China. It is located in the northern part of Nanjing's urban core (just a short walk outside of the city wall), near Xuanwu Lake.[1]

Services[edit]

Until 2010, this was the main railway station of Nanjing, with the great majority of all trains serving Nanjing using this station. Only a small number of trains, going to the destinations to the southwest of Nanjing, pass through the (old) Nanjing South Railway Station, which is located south of Nanjing's walled city; service to Nanjing West Railway Station has been suspended.

After the opening of new Nanjing South Railway Station in the southern part of greater Nanjing in mid-2010, many of the high-speed trains serving Nanjing have been re-routed to that new station. However, Nanjing station has frequent high-speed service to Shanghai and Shanghai Hongqiao, some services also stopping at Zhenjiang, Changzhou and Suzhou.

Nanjing Railway Station station is served by a station of the same name on Line 1 of Nanjing Metro. It is also the terminal for many of the city bus lines.

History[edit]

The station opened in 1968.[2]
