Bullet train G21 leaving at 17:00. Great to travel at 307 km/h. As nice and modern as Beijing south railway station is, the toilets are quite skanky! Train left on time and quickly picked up speed across the flat plains to the south.
Vast modern empty platforms at virtually identical stations between Beijing and shanghai. I wonder how long it will take for these stations to reach capacity!!
