Four pairs of them are running between the two cities. One pair of them numbered as K1556/K1558 are running from/to Shanghai Railway Station which is closer to the city center and operates both bullet and ordinary types, and other 3 pairs of them T81/T82, T381/T382, and T25/T26 are from/to South Railway Station which only operates ordinary types. And all of them arrive at/depart from Nanning Railway Station.

Besides, compared with K types, T types take less time. So if possible, T types should be your top choice. Besides, you'd better purchase a sleeper because it's a long and tiring journey. And owing to sleeper tickets are always in a great demand, you should buy one in advance.
