Located on Moling Road in Jing'an District, next to Shanghai Long-distance Bus Terminal, Shanghai Railway Station is often referred to as the 'New Passenger Station' to distinguish it from the old North Railway Station. It undertakes the receiving and dispatching of Shanghai-Nanjing intercity high-speed trains and ordinary trains bound for the north of the Yangtze River.
