Naming CustomEdit

This railway station is commonly called by locals as "火车北站"(North railway station), as the connecting Chengdu Metro station is called. However, confusingly there is another officially named Chengdu North railway station, 17 km (11 mi) north of this station, which is a large freight marshalling area and handles no passengers.
