Questions & Answers on Beijing - Linfen Train
Asked by Beverly from CANADA | Sep. 10, 2019 23:26Reply
How many luggage can I take if taking first class?
I can take 2 pieces of checked luggage? Do I need to take them myself or the train company will arrange them for me?

Thank you for your inquiry.

If you are looking for rail service, you can take 20kg luggage into the carriage. You need to take the luggage by yourself. There is luggage rack above the seats can be used. The luggage policy is the same for all seat class. There is no limitation about the pieces of luggage, only weight. You can take more than one piece of luggage with you. Hope this information can help you.

I suppose it is no problem to get off at Pingyao if I have a ticket to Linfen from Beijing?
From what I read online, it seems passengers can get off or get on from any stations along the way. Am I correct about this?

Yes, you are right about this! However, do check if the train you booked will stop i Pingyao and know about the arrival time in advance so you can get off at correct stop.

Hello, may I know if there is any broadcast in English to remind me to get off?
I am worried about missing my stop at Linfen. Is K603 always on time and so that I can judge by time?

You do not need to worry about it. Though there is no English broadcast, the steward will wake you up when your destination is coming. That is the reason why they collect your paper ticket when you board the train, to know where you need to get off.
