Xi'an Railway Station

Xi'an Railway Station (西安站) is one of the two main railway stations of Xi'an, the capital of China's Shaanxi Province. Located on the Longhai Railway line just north of Xi'an's historical walled city, Xi'an Railway Station had long been the main train station of the Xi'an metropolitan area. However, with the opening of Xi'an North Railway Station on the northern outskirts of the city in 2011, most of the high-speed service, including the G- and D-series trains of the Zhengzhou–Xi'an High-Speed Railway, have been transferred to the new station.[1]

Xi'an Railway Station remains the main station for all "conventional" rail service in the city, including the overnight Z-series expresses, T-series express trains, and all slower service.[2]

Local transportation connections[edit]

There is[when?] no subway service to Xi'an Railway Station, but the planned Line 4 of Xi'an Metro will serve it.
