Running Route

They are operated at more than one railway stations in both cities.

 In Beijing, all of them originate/end in Beijing Railway Station or South Railway Station. Compared with the South Station, the former one is closer to the city center. Although South Station is a little far from the city center, transportation around it is pretty convenient with subways, city buses, coaches and airport shuttle buses operated.

 In Shenyang, most of them are operated at North Railway Station. Thus, passengers have more choices there. Besides, connected with subway line 2 and city buses, transportation there is very convenient. The rest are running to/from Shenyang Railway Station, where you can take subway line 1 and city buses to the nearby places. 

One should notice that some of the rides just stop in Shenyang for a few minutes. If you take any of them, you should pay attention to the broadcast notices carefully and make sure to get off/get on in time.

There are 19 rides a day depart from capital city and 20 rides for return. Based on their running speed, they are categorized into different types. Z type and T type take 5.5 – 10 hours; K types take 8.5 - 14.5 hours; and only some of them numbered as 2257/2258 and 4216 take a long time of 15 - 18 hours or so. Obviously, if possible, you’d better choose to travel by Z or T types.

Furthermore, almost all of them run from/to Beijing Railway Station, where you will have more choices and only one pair numbered as Z621 and Z722 run from/to West Railway Station. Also, most of them just stop in Shenyang for a few minutes, so you should pack your luggage ahead of time and alight or board quickly.

They usually run along different routes, below are the major stations along the way: Tongzhou West, Miyun North, Yingshouyingzi, Chengde, Xiabancheng, Pingquan, Lingyuan, Yeboshou, Gongyingzi, Chaoyang, Beipiao South, Yixian, Fuxin, Xinlitun, Huangcun, Langfang North, Tianjin, Lutai, Yanjaio, Yutianxian, Tangshan North, Luanxian, Changli, Tangshan, Beidaihe, Qinhuangdao, Shanhaiguan, Suizhong North, Suizhong, Huludao North, Jinzhou South, Xingcheng, Huludao, Jinzhou, Goubangzi, Panjin North, Panjin, Anshan, Linghai, Dahushan, Xinmin, and Liaoyang.
 

Beijing - Shenyang Train vs. Flight

As an alternative, you can choose a flight which takes only around 1.5 hours. But it's not recommended in most cases. Because it costs more; and the airports are a little far from the downtown area, leading to the total flight travel time almost the same as the high speed rail travel time. Besides, the flight can be easily affected by the weather and it is not as punctual as rail service.

The North Station is about 5km in distance to the hotel, 20min by taxi. You can also use metro line 2 to Youth Street and then change to line 1 to the main station, exit A. Then walk to the hotel. So, it also means the main station is much closer to your hotel, in walking distance. If there is other trains with suitable time to main station, it would be a better option for you.

There are 3 stations in service, Shenyang Railway Station (the main station), North Station and South Station. To your hotel, distance from main station and north station is almost the same, but more direct from north station. You can take metro line 2 from north station to the library, B exit. Then walk to the hotel. If from the main station, you need take line 1 first to Youth Avenue first and then change to line 2 to the library. If by taxi, both stations are fine. South station is not recommended, too far away.
