Everyday Chinese

Hi all,

Every time I go to the Shanghai railway station I hear people saying what sounds like "fapiao fapiao". Could someone please explain the meaning and clarify what is actually being said if I misunderstood? Also, does anyone know the reason why tons of Chinese sit outside of the train station with their bags? I usually see them in groups and they look like they are travellers given their luggage. But I do not understand why they would wait outside the train station and not inside of it if they have tickets.
