Beijingbei Railway Station or 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: 西直門車站; pinyin: Xīzhímén Zhàn), is a railway station in Beijing. It was built in 1905 as one of the original stations on the Jingzhang Railway, now part of the old Beijing-Baotou Line.

Beijing North is now a small (Tier-III) station managed by the Beijing Railway Bureau, providing regular intercity train services to the north and northwest, including the Huhhot-Manzhouli Grasslands Express (K274/K275/K277). It is also the southern terminus for the S2 Line of the Beijing Suburban Railway.

Public transportation[edit]

The station is located just outside of Xizhimen Station and accessible by Line 2, Line 4 and Line 13 of the Beijing Subway as well as city bus lines 16, 26, 85, 87, 438, 651 and 运通105.
