History

Construction began on September 19, 2008.[2] The station was opened on January 11, 2011.[1]

Service

As of May 2012, Xi'an North Station is served only by the fast (G-series and D-series) trains running on the Zhengzhou–Xi'an High-Speed Railway; one of them continues south to Hankou.[3] All other passenger trains serving Xi'an (including the D-series trains going west, to Baoji) run from Xi'an Railway Station, just north of downtown.[4] This is likely to change once the Xi'an–Baoji High-Speed Railway (currently under construction) is completed.
