Shenyang Railway Station, Shenyang

(3.4/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Shenyang North Railway Station is a railway station on several railways: the Harbin–Dalian section of the Beijing–Harbin High-Speed Railway, Jingha railway, Hada Railway, Qinshen Passenger Railway, Shenda Railway, Shenji Railway, Jingha Passenger Dedicated Line and Hada Passenger Railway. It is located in Shenyang, in the Liaoning province of China.HistoryThe station opened in 1911. Shenyang North Railway Station was formerly the "Liaoning Main Station" (遼寧總站) before 1946 and colloquially known as the "Old North Station" (老北站). The original building was built in 1927. The current Main Station Building (主站房) began construction in 1986, was commissioned for operation in December 1990, and became one of the five most important railway hubs in China, earning itself the nickname "Northeast's No. 1 Station" (东北第一站). In 2011, a huge expansion project known as the "North Station Transport Hub Reconstruction Project" (北站交通枢纽改造工程) was initiated in response to the growing demand of floor area posed by the increasing passenger traffic after introduction of the high-speed rail service. The station now has an additional 3-storey "Sub-Station Building" (子站房) and a "Northern Square" (北广场) on the north (Huanggu District) side of the railways, while the old waiting lounge in the original 16-storey Main Station Building is now relocated to a large elevated concourse that bridges over the rail tracks, with a pillar-less roof (the largest in mainland China) doming the platforms. The South Square (南广场) outside the Main Station Building was rebuilt into a multi-levelled complex, with two above ground forming an elevated airport-style drop-off zone and a large ground-level area for bus stops, as well as a three-level underground city providing shopping malls, carparks, taxi pick-up and interchange with Subway Line 2, while also capable of rapid conversion into an air raid shelter if needed.

  • The Shenyang railway station has an impressive European-looking facade with an industrial Hall-like Hall in the background. Just at night you should look once railway station pedestrian street of the Tai Yuan, because the characters are illuminated and it thus turns out an impressive overall picture. If you are travelling as I train also comes at his own expense: the waiting room is spacious and it is a hive of activity, as every five to ten minutes a quick train leaves. There is a Burger King, as well as a KFC and of course various Chinese fast-food restaurants, including Zhen Kong Fu, restaurant with Bruce Lee in the logo. Attention all train enthusiasts and photographers: to reach only the tracks of their own train is called. Otherwise you can see none of the tracks and trains. Without a ticket you can't get even in the waiting room.

  • 沈阳火车站有专门去白河站的火车,普通快车,去长白山玩的话非常方便,而且回程的话有晚上的火车回去沈阳,在果车上我铺一个晚上第二天就能到沈阳。火车站站的工作人员服务很差。  more »
