Fanling Station is a station on the East Rail Line of the Hong Kong MTR. It is next to Fanling Town Centre, and is only a short walk away from Fung Ying Seen Koon, a well-known Taoist temple. The Fanling Highway was built from 1983 to 1987 directly adjacent to the station. Fanling station is located on Fanling Station Road within the Fanling area in North District, New Territories, Hong Kong.

History[edit]

The station once served as the terminus of Sha Tau Kok Railway, which ceased operations on 1 April 1928. The station had also served as the terminus for the now defunct Wo Hop Shek branch line, which ran from Fanling station to the Wo Hop Shek Public Cemetery. The branch line was only used for special services during the Ching Ming and Chung Yeung festivals. The Wo Hop Shek branch line was taken out of service in 1983 after electrification upgrades along the East Rail Line.
