As the railway hub of the nation, Beijing offers trains to most provincial capitals and neighboring cities. There are five train stations in Beijing, of which Beijing Railway Station and Beijing West Railway Station are the most frequently used. Trains from Beijing Railway Station (Beijing Zhan) travel to Baotou, northeast China, and Shanghai, with international trains to Moscow and Ulan Bator. Beijing Railway Station offers express trains to Harbin (8 hours), Tianjin (1.5 hours), Shanghai (10 hours), Shenyang (4 hours), Beidaihe (2 hours), Qinhuangdao (2 hours) and Changchun (6 hours). Beijing West Railway Station (Beijing Xi Zhan) has the reputation of the largest railway station in Asia, trains from Beijing West station travel to every province, most major and medium-sized cities and autonomous regions (excluding Hainan and Taiwan). In 2007, Beijing West Railway Station began to operate trains to Tibet (48 hours). Since 2006, Beijing South Station has been closed for renovation and will resume operations in August 2008. Beijing North Station offers trains that travel to neighboring provinces such as Hebei province and Inner Mongolia.
