Its origin can be traced back to the days when Taiwan was under Japanese rule. The Xinbeitou branch line was constructed in order to utilize the hot spring for tourism development. Later, the "Xinbeitou Chengjiangsuo (railway stop)" was established and renamed as "Xinbeitou Yi (station)" in 1916 (Taisho 5). The name of the place, Xinbeitou, was thus created. In 1988, because of the suspension of the Beidan Line, the station body was removed and relocated to Taiwan Folk Village in Changhua.

In 2003, the Taipei City Government and non-governmental organizations started striving to bring the station back since people began to notice the significance of cultural assets preservation. After people’s persistent efforts, Ri Rong Assets Co., Ltd. was touched by the citizens’ passion and expectations for the return of the station and donated Xinbeitou Station to the Department of Cultural Affairs of Taipei City Government for free.

In 2016, the reassembly location of the station was determined to be near the original site in Qixing Park. In April 2017, the restoration was finished and the station was open to the public again.

    Attractive arch at entrance with Chinese architecture


    The first thing you noticed on stepping out of this station is the tall arch with Chinese roofs. Outside Xinbeitou station are hotels, shops and restaurants. We get the feeling this station is dedicated for easy access to the Beitou hot spring area. many locals and tourists visit the hot springs.

    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.
