    • Hi, Nely
      I just saw that you maybe checking the train schedule from Huaihua to Tongren on my site. But I have to mention that my previous reply maybe incorrect. So, here I need to figure out that are you planning to go from Huaihua to Tongren (铜仁 in Guizhou Province)?
      I checked it at and found that there is a high speed train station named Tongren South, which is linked with Huaihua South directly.
      There are 15 high speed trains running daily from Huaihua Nan (South) 怀化南 to Tongren Nan (South) 铜仁南 (Journey time: 35 – 40 mins, From CNY49)
      I can help you check the live schedule for that station.
      If you have any problem, just contact the staffs at China Highlights. They will offer you help.

  2. Hello,

    How far is from Huaihua railway station to Huaihua South railway station. I will be travelling from Zhangjiajie to Huaihua and I need to transfer to Huaihua South to catch another train to Guiyang. I want to know how much time I need between the transfer points so I can book a train ticket that I wont miss due to timing. Thank you.

    • As the search results from Gaode Map shows, there are public buses liking the two train station in 50 minutes. If taking a taxi, the duration is about 20-25 mins. It is advised to allow 1h30m for making the transfer, and catching your next train.
