In fact it means a railway station, metro station cannot be used for rail ticket collection. If in Nanning, it means only Nanning, Nanning East and West Station can be used for collection.

Yes, they are the same station, the East Station. You can find the left luggage office there. The cost is CNY10 to 20 per piece, but not sure how many hours included in this price, maybe 8 hours or 12 hours.
