Sheung Shui Station is the penultimate northbound station on the East Rail Line in Hong Kong. This station serves as the terminus of northbound trains after the Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau boundary crossings have closed. Passengers wishing not to enter the Boundary Area illegally by proceeding to Lo Wu or Lok Ma Chau without a Closed Area Permit, valid passport and visa, or without the intention of crossing over to Shenzhen must disembark here.

This station is located in the North District, New Territories, Hong Kong, serving the Sheung Shui area and its vicinity.

Station layout[edit]

Markers are provided on the northbound platform following the opening of Lok Ma Chau station. Two queues, blue and green, are set up at the boarding areas. The blue queues are for passengers travelling to Lo Wu, while the green queues are for those travelling to Lok Ma Chau. Platform 1 is the termination platform of northbound trains after Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau boundary crossings have closed, and so platform 2 (southbound platform) is the only platform for boarding.
