Location of the station

Xi'an railway station (Chinese: 西安站; pinyin: Xī'ān Zhàn) is one of the two main passenger railway stations of Xi'an, the capital of China's Shaanxi Province. Located on the Longhai Railway and just to the north of Xi'an's historical walled city, the station had long been the main train station for the Xi'an metropolitan area. With the opening of Xi'an North railway station on the northern outskirts of the city in 2011, most of the high-speed services, including the G- and D-series trains of the Zhengzhou–Xi'an High-Speed Railway, have been transferred to the new station.[3] 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 services.[4]

Local transportation connections[edit]

Currently, the station can be accessed through Wulukou station of Line 1, despite some distance (0.7 km).[5]

In the future, the Huochezhan station on the under-construction Line 4 and planned Line 7 will be the nearest metro station serving the railway station. The station will be opened together with the expansion work of the railway station.[6]
