Beneath the square at the east of Shenzhen Station lies the eastern terminal station of Shenzhen Metro Line 1, Luohu station. To the south of Shenzhen railway station is Luohu Port. Passengers could go through their exit formalities in the Frontier Inspection Building. After that, they would get to the Luohu station of Hong Kong Metro,from which they are able to reach every district of Hong Kong.

Currently, Shenzhen Railway Station is the departure station of all inter-city lines between Guangzhou and Shenzhen, and there are 120 MU trains heading to Guangdong Station and Guangdong East Station each day. The MU train runs every 5 minutes during rush hours, every 10 or 15 minutes during the rest of the day, which has made it the busiest inter-city line in the Chinese Mainland. Operating the inter-city lines between Guangdong and Shenzhen “busly” has been put into practice primarily. Besides, plenty of trains come and go among Shenzhen and major cities in China as well.

Passengers wait for the inter-city trains on the first floor, and other coach trains on the second floor of the station. Trains set out from Kowloon Hung Hom Station to Guangzhou, Peking and Shanghai are direct trains, so there’s no stopping at Shenzhen Station.


Shenzhen Railway Station was built in 1911, previously sitting at the intersection of Jiefang Road. On October 8th, 1911, it’s enabled of using as the completion of the Kowloon-Canton Railway’s China section (now is known as Guangzhou-Shenzhen railway). After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Shenzhen Railway Station was relocated near the Luohu Port in 1950. From 1950 to 1990, equipments of the station house were all simple and crude. Shenzhen Station was nothing but a passenger and freight station until the Shungang Station was turned into a cargo terminal in 1973. At that time, there were only seven tracks and a turn plate. The Three Express Train accepted the Customs and border inspection as well as quarantine here.
In early 1980s, the station house was a two-stored building with Regular Waiting Room, VIP Waiting Room and Hong Kong-Macau Waiting Room.

Shenzhen Railway Station began to undergo its extensive reconstruction in June 1990. On October 12th, 1991, a new Shenzhen Railway Station, which has cost 220 million Yuan, was ready to open to the public. The Chinese characters “深圳站”on the station were inscribed by Deng Xiaoping. In 2003, Shenzhen Railway Station experienced another reconstruction. After that, waiting room and ticket office were separated into two parts by the standard on Guangzhou-Shenzhen inter-city line and coach line. As for the coach line, First Class Waiting Room, Soldiery Waiting Room and mother-and-child Waiting Room were added. But at the same time, the station ground was closed because of the construction of Luohu Metro Station and the transfer body. The station ground was rebuilt to be used in 2004.

    What is the last train that leaves from Louhu station to Hong Kong?

  3. Lo Wu Station is the northern terminus of the East Rail Line of Hong Kong, sitting in Lo Wu within the Closed Area on Hong Kong’s northern frontier. The station serves as a primary checkpoint for rail passengers between Hong Kong and mainland China and vice-versa, rather than serving a specific residential/commercial area like the other stations do. It is also the northernmost railway station in Hong Kong.

    This station is also unique to rail systems of any kind in that sliding doors limit the number of people that are allowed on the platform. Two large glass sliding doors close after about a minute elapses from the time the train pulls in for boarding. These doors are located after the area for validating at the ticket barriers, but before the platforms area. Even with this system in place, passengers may have to wait for the next train to arrive before they can travel back towards Hung Hom, as alternate trains pull into each paired platform. This layout makes use of the Spanish solution.

    I want to travel from Shenzhen station to Guangzhou East station by bullet train. I believe that the place where you board the train is actually not in the Shenzhen station building. It is apparently somewhere on the outside. Can anyone tell me how to get to the area where the Shenzhen/Guangzhou east bullet train departs from.
