Wuchang Railway Station is a major railway station on the Beijing–Guangzhou Railway, the Wuhan–Jiujiang Railway and the Hankou–Danjiangkou Railway, located on the east side of Zhongshan Road[1] in Wuchang District, Wuhan, Hubei, China.

Founded as the Tongxiang Gate Station in 1916, the station was moved several times and settled in the current location on 1957. It is the largest transportation center in Wuhan with daily traffic of 77,000 passengers and 20,000 packages as of 2000,[2] and a record of 80,000 passengers per day during the Chunyun period as of 2008.[3]

In 2010, some timetable systems (e.g. www.tielu.org) started referring to the Wuchang Railway Station as "Wuhan South Station" (武汉南站). However, "Wuchang" continues to be both the official and commonly used name.[citation needed]
