Nanjing railway station (Chinese: 南京站; pinyin: Nánjīng Zhàn) is a major railway station of Nanjing, Jiangsu, China. It is located in the northern part of Nanjing's urban core (just a short walk from the city wall), near Xuanwu Lake.
Until 2010, this was the main railway station of Nanjing, with the great majority of all trains serving Nanjing using this station. Only a small number of trains, going to the destinations to the southwest of Nanjing, pass through the (old) Nanjing South railway station, which is located south of Nanjing's walled city; service to Nanjing West railway station has been suspended.
After the opening of new Nanjing South Railway Station in the southern part of greater Nanjing in mid-2010, many of the high-speed trains serving Nanjing have been re-routed to that new station. However, Nanjing station has frequent high-speed service to Shanghai and Shanghai Hongqiao, some services also stopping at Zhenjiang, Changzhou and Suzhou. Some overnight D trains continue on north towards Beijing South Railway Station, Beijing Railway Station, Tianjin West Railway Station, or Xi'an North Railway Station.
