At 7:26 am on June 20, the G601 Fuxing bullet train departed from Beijing Fengtai Station, marking the rebirth and official operation of the centennial station after three and a half years of construction. It is the largest railway hub passenger station in Asia and the first large-scale passenger station in China with a double-decker yard design.

The top-level is assigned to high-speed rail and the ground-level to normal-speed trains, with the underground subway below. As one of China's major railway projects, its completion and operation heralds Beijing's ambition to improve its comprehensive transportation system and facilitate the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region in North China.
