Dear Sandra,

Thanks for your message. Are you referring Fuzhou North Railway Station (福州北站). We have no idea where is Fuzhao north station. If I am wrong, please tell me the exact name or Chinese name of the railway station so that I can check train schedule for you. If Fuzhou is what you are searching for, you can take bullet train to Fuzhou from Luoyang. The train number is G1904. It departs at 12:26pm, and arrives Fuzhou Railway Station at 21:49. The price is 710 CNY.
