The Weifang railway station (simplified Chinese: 潍坊站; traditional Chinese: 濰坊站; pinyin: Wéifang zhàn) is a railway station found in Weicheng District, a part of Weifang City, Shandong. It currently lies on the Qingdao–Jinan passenger railway(running CRH and passenger trains) and Qingdao–Jinan railway(running cargo trains and some passenger trains which give ways to CRH).

There is also a branch linking to Fangzi Railway Station in southern Fangzi District.

Service[edit]

All types of trains stop at Weifang Station, ranging from the common trains (denoted without a letter) to the high-speed CRH trains (denoted with a "G"). Due to the low constructing standard of Qingdao-Jinan passenger railway, "G" trains can only run at 200km/h, same as "D" trains(common CRH trains). The ticket price of "D"s and "G"s running on this railway is equally calculated as well. The common trains mainly offer service throughout Shandong province and major cities outside Shandong, with destinations such as Cao County, Qingdao, Yantai, Weihai and some stations have no high-speed train service.

Passengers can board the high-speed "G"-trains to Shanghai, Beijing, Changchun, Harbin, Guangzhou, Xi'an, Chengdu, Chongqing, Hangzhou, Fuzhou, etc.. On the westbound track, trains will first go to Jinan railway station before switching to the Beijing–Shanghai High-Speed Railway. There are also some lower-speed "D"-trains which run from Jinan to Qingdao, Yantai, Rongcheng(in Weihai), Longkou(in Yantai) and a few long routes to Shijiazhuang, Yuncheng and Taiyuan.[1]
