Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not realated to China, but:

Here in the UK Channel 5 will be showing (Friday, 8 pm) a documentary called World's Busiest Train Station, about Shinjuku station in Tokyo. According to the blurb, every day Shinjuku sees three million passengers, making it fifteen times busier than London Waterloo.

Next week will be World's Busiest Airport, about Hong Kong International.

Because of the train crash in France, the programme was replaced at the last minute with a repeat of Ice Road Truckers. According to  comments on Channel 5's website, it was available to watch online, but I just get an error message - after the commercials have played, of course.

The three million number seems to be a sum of the six parts of the station (without subtracting transfers), but the 1.5 million boarding or alighting at the JR East part only is already mind-boggling...
