Many people asked me for suggestion to visit other places by train. It is a FAQ, and I finally found out the train schedule (in English). Please check out this sample. You will see how frequent the train from Shanghai to Nanjing is. If you check out this table, there are 53 trains leave Shanghai and go to Nanjing every single day! That is one train every half an hour. Click the train no to find out more about the specific train.
|Train #||Shanghai ->||Suzhou ->||Wuxi ->||Changzhou ->||Zhenjiang ->||Nanjing||Duration||Distance (km)|
The duration appears not be calcualted correctly eg:
T704 >0830 0929 10470837 0919 1054< 2:54 303
Martin, it reads: T704 >0830 0929 1047< 2:47 303
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, 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…
