New and big as everything in Beijing. A bit hard to navigate unless you are going by

This train station is amazing. It's very easy to navigate, although we buy our tickets through the hotel because it's easier.
You go through airport type security before entering the building. You carry your own luggage, because they don't have carts.

At the third attempt I've worked out the easiest pick up point is the West Entrance on the 2nd level (departures).
When you arrive into Beijing South Railway Station, head towards the South Exit but go through the security check and up the escalator.

The station is one huge room. The gates (tracks) are paired, 1 abdv2, 3abd 4, etc. I'm guessing there are about 30 tracks, meaning 15 pairs. Once you get through the entrance, you are in about the middle of the station. Logically, track 11 should be in around the first third, towards one end. It's important to know the tracks have two entrances. This will be pretty obvious. One entrance is for people in the first half of the train, the second for people in the last half of the train. They sort of make announcements, but if you see a line forming for your track, you should get on it.
