Pinghu railway station, formerly Ping Wu Station, serves the town of Pinghu, Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China (PRC). It is a stop on the Guangshen railway, and also termini of Pingnan railway and Pingyan railway.

History[edit]

The station was opened in 1911 as part of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Chinese Section, with trains running between Kowloon and Canton.

Since the speed-up campaign of China Railways, the number of passenger trains stopping at Pinghu was decreasing, and was totally closed to passenger service since 2006 where the last stopping passenger train was cancelled.

It has been reopened to passenger service since 2016 as an intermediate station exclusively for CRH intercity trains on Guangshen Railway, while conventional trains do not stop at this station.
