Shanghai Railway Station Station (simplified Chinese: 上海火车站站; traditional Chinese: 上海火車站站; pinyin: Shànghǎi Huǒchēzhàn Zhàn) is an interchange station between Lines 1, 3 and 4 on the Shanghai Metro. It is one of the stations where Line 3 and Line 4 share the same tracks and elevated platforms.

The transfer between Line 1 and lines 3 and 4 is actually quite long. Both metro stations are located on the opposing sides of the train station with a long tunnel connecting both platforms.

In addition to being an interchange between metro lines, the station facilitates transfer to Shanghai's main railway station. A tunnel leads directly from the concourse of the metro station to the concourse of the railway station.
