|Xi'an is a good connecting station. For others, refer to http://www.chinatravelguide.com/|

|John, we're replying re the Yulin -- Pingyao request. Not Pingyao -- Shanghai!|
Xi'an is a "good" connecting station, but decent tickets out of Xi'an are usually not easy to get.

|Oops. Sorry. From Yulin to Pingyao, Xi'an is also a good connecting point, as you said. For Yulin-->Pingyao, see http://www.ChinaTravelGuide.com/|
My previous answer itself for Pingyao-->Shanghai was right, but maybe answered the wrong Q.
But I think the original question GAIA asked was "I would like to take a train from Pingyao to Shanghai to visit Suzhou, Kunshan and Hangzhou and then go to Yangshou via Guilin by air." And then RUNNERMORE answered "There's no direct train from Pingyao to Shanghai." And then mentioned K371/K374 (the time he quoted for this train is not correct, though).
And then a guest changed the question before the original Q was answered. So I think, Ellyse, your answer and my answer of connecting at Xi'an are good for either "Pingyao to Shanghai" Q or "Yulin to Pingyao" Q.

|GUEST10137||How/where can I get train tickets to Pingyao from Beijing? Can I reserve a return ticket? thanks|

|Eh, when are you travelling? If you're trying to do Beijing -- Pingyao anytime before mid-February, tickets might be hard to get.|

|Yes, in fact there're seven!|
1726 (10723--1629) 9h06min --> leaves from Xi'an South train station
1676/1673 (1220--2053) 8h33min
K6 (1227--2218) 9h51min
1486 (1236--2112) 8h36min --> leaves from Xi'an South train station
2536 (2007--0543) 9h36min
2672 (2318--0755) 8h37min
You might only be able to get decent tickets for 1676 and 2672, as those two originate in Xi'an.

|Might be easier for Taiyuan -- Beijing.|
Reason why Pingyao -- Beijing is difficult is because no trains originate at Pingyao (this is a relatively small station) and also because of high tourist demand.
Contact a guesthouse in Pingyao to get you tickets in advance.
