Hangzhou-Nanjing Train

Currently, there are around 118 pairs of trains operated daily between the two cities. About 100 more pairs of them are high speed types with duration of 1 hour to 4 hours. The rest 18 pairs or so are normal types with duration of 5 hours to 8 hours.

Bullet trains are much more popular for this short trip due to its frequency and short travel time. It makes a one-day-tour easier between two cities. Thus, travelers are recommended to choose this type of ride. However, they do not run in late night, which means bullet overnight sleeper trains are not available. As a complementarity, some non-bullet types with sleepers are still reasonable for passengers who need to depart during mid-night.
 

High Speed Trains

Most of these rides run between Hangzhou East Railway Station and Nanjing South Railway Station. Although fewer rides are available at Hangzhou Station and Nanjing Station, they are good choices as located closer to the city center; travelers can take them into consideration as well if the schedule fits.

These rides run along 2 different routes thus the mileage differs a lot:
 Most of them follow the Nanjing-Hangzhou High Speed Railway Line with a distance around 162 miles (260 kilometers). Stopovers along this route include Deqing, Huzhou, Changxing, Yixing, Liyang, Wawushan, Lishui, and Jurong West.
 A few of them operate on Hangzhou-Shanghai High Speed Railway and Shanghai-Nanjing High Speed Railway with a distance of around 292 miles (470 kilometers). Stopovers along this route include Yuhang, Haining West, Tongxiang, Jiaxing South, Jiashan South, Jinshan North, Songjiang South, Shanghai Hongqiao, Kunshan South, Suzhou, Suzhou North, Wuxi, Wuxi East, Huishan, Changzhou, Chaozhou North, Danyang, Danyang North, Zhenjiang, and Zhenjiang South.

There are totally 18 pairs of normal rides between. However, they are not recommended options except for these travelers who have to travel during mid-night for flight connection.

All the rides are operated at Nanjing Railway Station. But in Hangzhou, they are operated at two different stations. Double check your ticket to make sure to get on or off at the right one.

As most of the rides just stop for a few minutes at the related stations, it is recommended to pay more attention to the broadcast in order to make preparation for getting off in advance. If you are not sure whether your destination is approaching or not, you may show your paper ticket to the staff or local passengers around you for help.
