The Xi'an North Railway Station (Chinese: 西安北站; pinyin: Xī'ānběi Zhàn) is a railway station of Zhengxi Passenger Railway and Xibao Passenger Railway. The station located in Weiyang District of Xi'an City (the capital of Shaanxi Province of China). It is some 10 km north of the city centre and the "old" Xi'an Railway Station.
The station is connected to downtown Xi'an by Line 2 of Xi'an Metro.
As of May 2012, Xi'an North Station is served only by the fast (G-series and D-series) trains running on the Zhengzhou–Xi'an High-Speed Railway; one of them continues south to Hankou. All other passenger trains serving Xi'an (including the D-series trains going west, to Baoji) run from Xi'an Railway Station, just north of downtown. This is likely to change once the Xi'an–Baoji High-Speed Railway (currently under construction) is completed.
