Photographer's Note

Beijing Station is a passenger railway station in Dongcheng District, Beijing. Nowadays, this tation is divide by route with Beijing West Railway Station or Beijing South Railway Station. the above-mentioned route is mainly departing and arriving. It opened in
1901 and changed the current name in 1949 through changes of a time. It is the ground station where installed 8 platforms and 16 lines inside the site of 250,000 m2 and the building area of 80,000 m2. It is an arrival-and-departure station of the international train to which connect Moscow in Russia and Pyongyang in North Korea other than the domestic lines of the direction of Shanghai, Shenyang-Dalian- Harbin, Mongolian, and Jinan-Qingdao etc. Beijing West Railway Station seems to connect lines of Hong Kong, Guanzhou and Vietnam as international route. And, Beijin South Railway Station seems to connect to suburban area of Beijin and high-speed rail to Shanghai. With gilded eaves and soaring clock towers, the architecture of the railway blends traditional Chinese and socialist realist influence about Beijin Railway Station. I was walking around here from Tiananmen Square. It was crowded with the visitor who goes to rural areas, or the visitors who came out from rural areas at the station front. Moreover, I found many mini-vans which goes to a neighboring town in here. I remember that many stores are around a station and it was active. Probably, the circumference would change fairly bordering on Beijing Olympic Games (2008).
