History
Opened1911 (original station), 1950 (first station at current site), 1990 (current station building)

Shenzhen station (Chinese: 深圳站; pinyin: Shēnzhèn Zhàn, formerly Shum Chun station) or Shenzhen Luohu station (Chinese: 深圳罗湖站; pinyin: Shēnzhèn Luóhú Zhàn), is located across from Luohu Commercial City in the Luohu district of Shenzhen, Guangdong and is the southern terminus of the Guangshen Railway.

History[edit]

Opening of the original Shenzhen Station, 1911

Shenzhen station was first opened as Shum Chun, as the last stop of the Chinese section of the Kowloon-Canton Railway in 1911. This station situated in Dongmen, in what was then the market town of Shenzhen/Shum Chun. It was relocated near its current location on the China-Hong Kong border, opposite Lo Wu station, in 1950. This station was in turn demolished in 1983 and successively rebuilt and remodelled multiple times to its current scale. [1][2]

Location[edit]

The station is located just north of the boundary with Hong Kong in a north-south alignment. The Guangshen Railway joins the East Rail Line in Hong Kong just south of the station, where Lo Wu Station on the Hong Kong MTR is located. The Shenzhen Metro system has Luohu Station nearby on a lower level connected with Shenzhen Station.

Train services[edit]

Shenzhen railway station will be the main hub for inter-city trains in Guangdong Province, for example, and its current long-distance trains to Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Guilin and Fuzhou will be relocated to Shenzhen East railway station in the future. Current high-speed trains between Shenzhen to Guangzhou railway station and Guangzhou East railway station, however, will stay.[3]
