Ji’nan Rail oversees 3,150 km of railways, mostly in the province of Shandong (although notably, the northernmost city, Dezhou, belongs to Beijing Railways). Shandong is well noted for being the home of Confucius and Mo Yan. The sole HSR link (300+ km/h) is the Shandong part of the Beijing-Shanghai HSR (stations are Ji’nan West and four other stations), although there is another 200-250 km/h HSR link from Ji’nan via Zibo to Qingdao. Main cities served by Ji’nan Rail includes the cities of Ji’nan, Qingdao, Yantai, Rizhao, as well as Qufu and Tai’an / Taishan.
