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, 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.
The station will be closed from November 1, 2016 to sometime in 2019 for renovation work. During this time, the S2 Line terminus will be located at Huangtudian railway station and all other China Railway trains will stop at Changping North railway station.
The station is located just outside Xizhimen Station, which is connected to Line 2, Line 4 and Line 13 of the Beijing Subway, and is also connected to city bus lines 16, 26, 85, 87, 438, 651 and 运通105.
