Beijingbei (Beijing North) railway station (Chinese: 北京北站; pinyin: Běijīngběi Zhàn), formerly known as Xizhimen railway station (simplified Chinese: 西直门站; traditional Chinese: 西直門站; pinyin: Xīzhímén Zhàn), is a railway station in Beijing. It was built in 1905 as one of the original stations on the Jingzhang railway (part of the old Beijing–Baotou railway).
