With its peeling paint and shuttered windows, Pukou Railway Station, on the north side of the Yangtze River that divides Nanjing, is an unlikely tourist destination.
Pukou Railway Station —
Also known as Nanjing North Station, it was a major transport hub until a rail and road bridge was built across the Yangtze in the 1960s. It's no longer used for passenger trains but cargo trains stop by the station occasionally.
A glimpse into the Republican era —
It is one of the few rail stations in China that preserves features and designs from the Republican era, the period between the last imperial dynasty and before the founding of the communist government. It's been used as a location in several Chinese movies set in the Republican era.
