  • The Beijing South Railway Station is a large railway station in Fengtai District, Beijing, about 7.5 km south of central Beijing, between the 2nd and 3rd ring roads. The station in its present form opened on 1 August 2008 and replaced the old Beijing South station, originally known as the Majiapu Railway Station, later renamed the Yongdingmen Railway Station, which stood 500 metres away. The old station was in use from 1897 to 2006. The new Beijing South Railway Station is the city's largest station, and is the one of the largest in Asia. It joins the main Beijing Railway Station and the Beijing West Railway Station as one of three main passenger rail hubs in the Chinese capital. It serves as the terminus for high-speed trains on the Beijing–Tianjin Intercity Rail and the Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway, which can reach speeds up to 350 km/h. Some CRH night sleepers to and from Shanghai also depart from this station. The station integrates a Beijing Subway station, bus hubs, and taxi stands, into the same building, and includes a wide variety of restaurants in the station itself. Wikipedia
