Thank you for your inquiry.

According to policy, child under 120cn can board for free without ticket if sharing the bed with adult. Child under 150cm can buy child ticket with a discount around 25% off. The child will his own bed. We are sorry that the beds location is assigned randomly by railway system. We can try for lower beds for you but it cannot be 100% guaranteed. Hope for your kind understanding.

Hello, I plan to buy 4 soft sleeper beds from Datong to Pingyao.
I noticed that there is no tickets offered on 2463, but when I check it from Datong to Linfen, it shows tickets for sale! Isn't this the same train? Can I buy a ticket to Linfen, but get off at Pingyao?

Thank you for your inquiry.
Yes, they are the same ride, the ticket availability difference is due to the ticket distribution by Tailway Company. Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. You can buy the ticket to Linfen and still get off at Pingyao. However, the ticket price difference cannot be refunded. Also, please inform the staff about this after boarding so that we can wake you up in time and give your paper ticket back. Hope this can help you!
