For the collection, you need that ticket pick up number (start with "E") and the original travel document (passport). You can use both of them to collect the paper ticket at railway station ticket counter.

Left luggage Chengdu East
I want to leave my luggage in the left luggage lockers at the East station whilst I hike Mt Emei. This will mean they will be there 4 days. Is this allowed?

Not sure about the locker, but the left luggage office should be OK. It is better to confrim the open time with the staff there if you plan to collect the luggage back in early morning or at night.

Time required for transshipment between trains
We will arrive in Chengdu at 09:13 on G8504 and our ride C6301 go to Leshan at 09:35. Do we have enough time to make this plan? We can transfer from one to another at that time (20 minutes). Can the station staff help us do it? Thank you for helping us.

You can use the transfer service so that you go upstairs to the waiting room directly instead of going out and in again. The important thing is that you need to collect tickets for both trips in advance and hold them in hands. By holding both tickets, you will be able to go upstairs and go opposite the ticket checking gate and reach waiting room and find the gate for your next trip to leshan. If you are worried about finding the stairs, you can ask the staff on G8504 in advance. Normally 20min is possible if you do not have many big luggages with you.
