The train to Dong Dang is metre gauge and cannot continue on the Chinese railway network. Passengers destined for China must connect to a Chinese train at Pingxiang. Standard gauge tracks have been laid to Gia Lâm Railway Station, about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) across the river from the main Hanoi Railway Station. Through trains to China depart from Gia Lâm rather than the main Hanoi Railway Station.
Hanoi Railway Station opened in 1902. The building was damaged in the Vietnam War 1972 and in 1976 the central hall was rebuilt in modern style, preserving the historic side wings (only the middle was bombed).
