Answered by Cain from USA | Dec. 07, 2018 00:45

They are totally two different stations. One is the main station named by the city and the other is East Station (location). It is about 10km between this two stations, both are not far from the city area. It is recommended to use K998 regardless of the station as it is 6 hours shorter in duration!
