During the Japanese era, in order to develop the hot spring tourism in Xinbeitou area, the Xinbeitou branch line was built. In 1916 (Taisho 5th year), the "Xinbeitou Chengjiangsuo" was established and renamed as "Xinbeitou Yi (Station)". The place name Xinbeitou was born from this. Xinbeitou Station is the only century-old station in Taipei City. However, due to the suspension of the Beidan Line in 1988, the station became history, and the station body was demolished and relocated to Taiwan Folk Village in Changhua.

In 2003, the awareness of the preservation of cultural assets rose. The Taipei City Government and non-governmental organizations joined together to fight to bring the station home. After several twists and turns, Ri Rong Assets Co., Ltd. felt the enthusiasm and expectations of Taipei residents for the return of the station and agreed to donate Xinbeitou Station to the Department of Cultural Affairs of Taipei City Government for free.

In 2016, the decision of reassembly location was finalized in Qixing Park near the original site (as seen today), and the restoration project began immediately. The reassembly was completed in April 2017 and was opened to the public again.

    Entry way to hot springs area


    This station connects to Beito station by a short train ride. The station is the entry wY to the hot springs area. It’s clean and decorated with Characters promoting the hot springs area. The train that goes between the 2 stations is decorated with characters as well and shows a video about the hot springs area. The old Xinbeito station is nearby and is a museum.

    It's a station


    But a well catered one for tourists and right at the base of where you want to go. Trains are frequent.

    Not all that worthwhile


    So I was able to see the Xinbeitou historic station, which has been converted into a museum of sorts. It was interesting, but there really wasn't all that much to see.

    Raining day train


    This station is extension from Beitou station and already provides the convenience to visitors to many of the places of interest over there. The station is just ordinary but the train is decorated for visitors with promotion screens, icons, seats, etc.
