Den Chai Station was opened in 1912 during the King Rama VI's reign as Phrae provincial railway station. In the olden days, the station was once used as a hub for various types of commodities, for example the shipping of wood, heavy products, as well as loads of packages would be conveyed here, also it was a distribution centre to provinces in the immediate vicinity. During that time, the station master had more powers than the district chief.

The exact station building was renovated around 1957. The building constructed with the entire wooden structures, including ancient teak wood, was adjusted and extended to provide a larger usable area. It is transformed into a cemented building with structures like butterfly roofing and a spacious with lengthy platform to accommodate the utilities.

Den Chai Station is planned to be the junction for the Den Chai-Chiang Rai-Chiang Khong Railway Line.
