Guangzhou Railway Station (Chinese: 广州火车站; Pinyin: Guǎngzhōu Huǒchēzhàn) serves the city of Guangzhou, China. It sits on the high speed Guangshen railway just west of Guangzhou East. As one of the busiest railway stations in southern China, Guangzhou station is known for its notorious safety record. CRH trains from Guangzhou serves Shenzhen six times daily. Some CRH sleeper trains from Beijing West also serve this station.
As early as the 1950s, the provincial government saw the need for a central train station in Guangzhou but the plans were shelved until 1974 due to the Cultural Revolution. On the 4 April, 1979 with the normalisation of relations with Hong Kong, the through-train service that was suspended for over twenty-five years was resumed. Through-train services were moved to Guangzhou East in 1996 due to increasing security problems.
