History
Opened June 1935 (1935-06)

Xi'an Railway Station is one of the two main railway stations of Xi'an, the capital of China's Shaanxi Province. Located on the Longhai Railway line just north of Xi'an's historical walled city, Xi'an Railway Station had long been the main train station of the Xi'an metropolitan area. However, 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.[1]

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 service.[2]

Local transportation connections[edit]

While planned stations of Lines 4 and 7 of Xi'an Metro directly more near no constructed yet, currently Wulukou station of Line 1 serves the Xi'an Railway Station despite of some distance (0.7 km)[3][4]
