The train runs everyday. There are 9 rides a day to East Station. You need to search by Hong Kong [Hung Hom] Station istead of West Kowloon. West Kowloon Station only has trains to South Station.

Can we go to Hung Hom Station from Guangzhou East Station?
Is Hung Hom Station the same with West Kowloon Hongkong Station? Can we go to it from Guangzhou East Station? Because there are no online tickets sold from GUangzhou East Station. The only available online tickets depart from Guangzhou South Railway Station.

If to reach East Station, you can use city bus to Hung Hom station first and take a train to Guangzhou East. I think there is a direct bus A21 or 22. You can check it online. Or you can transfer by MTR too. Or you can use taxi or Airport Express line to reach West Kowloon Station to take a train to Guangzhou South. By the way, I think there seems some bus service to Guangzhou too, to some hotels in Guangzhou. You can check on HK airport website about it.
