Departure G7319 at 9:38
Different from other trains from "Shanghai Hongqiao", this G7319 only shows "Shanghai" on website. So it means a different station? Please confirm, thank you!

Thank you for your inquiry.

Yes, indeed! This G7319 departs from Shanghai Railway Station instead of Hongqiao Station. This station is named by city name and closer to city center area. The address is No. 303 Moling Road, Jing'an District. Hope this information can help you.

I heard a new high speed rail line served this trip and is much faster
May I know which train runs on the new line? The 2.5 hours one?
Answers (1)
Answered by Lakita from AUSTRALIA | Jan. 21, 2019 17:40

Hello, Ingrid! All of these G and D rides are running on the new line already since it is better and more reasonable route. The time difference is due to the speed and stopovers.
