Hangzhou to Taiyuan by high speed train
Is there a city near Hangzhou or Taiyuan where I can go for a transit in order to find an afternoon train?

Considering the 8 hours duration, it is almost impossible to find an afternoon train. However, if you can travel noon time, you may take G1894 at 11:20 to Zhengzhou first and then change to G1956 at 17:48 from Zhengzhou to Taiyuan.

Taiyuan is a good option to transfer to Pingyao. You can collect all the tickets together in advance so it will save your time. Also, in this way, you need about 30min between this two rides only, you do not need to out and enter again through security check. You can just back to the waiting hall and checkin again.
