    1. Shanghai Railway Station 1 3 4 (上海站), 100 Moling Road (three stops north from People's square on line 1 ). Shanghai's largest and oldest, located in Zhabei District. Practically all trains used to terminate here, but many southbound services have been shifted out to the South Station and high-speed services to the new Hongqiao Station.
