Knowing the difference between trains with number beginning with the letter N, T, Z, K, I, and those with just numbers, no letters, can save hours, if not days.
D = Deng (Bullet train, non-stop super fast)
Z = Zui (Non-stop / direct)
T = Te (Blue coloured trains, which stop in the capital or bigger cities along a particular route)
K = Kuai (Orange coloured trains, which stop at important cities or counties along a particular route)
N = Nei (AC inter-city trains run by local railway bureau stopping at important stations along a particular route)
Well, avoid the “I” train, or XXXX( = slow, very, very slow local train) which have no AC and can be very very very hot on a blazingly hot summer’s day.
