What platform does D1820 depart from to Guilinixi?
Answers (1)
Answered by Ezekiel | Jul. 11, 2019 02:27

This information need to be checked at station instead. You won't know it until you get there. In fact you need to find the checkin gate based on train number. This is also printed on the paper ticket on the right corner. If you checkin from the appointed gate, you will reach the platform used for your train.
