Nanjing railway station (Chinese: 南京站; pinyin: Nánjīng Zhàn) is a major railway station of Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu province. It is located in the northern part of Nanjing's urban core (just a short walk from 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. Some overnight D trains continue on north towards Beijing South Railway Station, Tianjin West Railway Station, or Xi'an North Railway Station.

Nanjing railway station is served by a station of the same name on Line 1 and Line 3 of Nanjing Metro. It is also the terminal for many of the city bus lines.

History[edit]

The station opened in September 1968,[2] shortly before the opening of the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge. The connection with Line 1 of the Nanjing Metro began operations on 3 September 2005[3] as part of the line's Phase I from Maigaoqiao to Andemen.[a] The interchange with Nanjing Metro Line 3 opened on 1 April 2015 with the opening of that line.[5]

On 30 September 2016 the metro station served a peak volume of 99,800 passengers.[6]
