    The duration appears not be calcualted correctly eg:

    T704 >0830 0929 10470837 0919 1054< 2:54 303

  2. Martin, it reads: T704 >0830 0929 1047< 2:47 303

  3. Hi Jian, In 2 weeks I am coming to Nanjing from Boston. These trains from Shanghai to Nanjing, are they from the Main station or from south station? Thanks for the info. Great site, by the way.

    – Joe

  4. @Joe, it SHOULD be at the Shanghai Main Station, not the South Station. As far as I know, there is no train to Nanjing from South Station. However, always check the ticket to make sure where you are going…
