The Entrance to Lushun railway station

Lüshun railway station (in Chinese: 旅顺火车站) is located in Lüshunkou District of Dalian City, China, and is the final stop of the Dalian-Lushun branch of the Dalian-Harbin railway.[1] It sits on the east side of the Long River, within a hundred meters of the Lüshun Naval Port, its building being of the Russian-style wooden architecture.

Currently,[when?] it is served by two passenger train services a day from Dalian.

In 2006, Lushun West railway station opened on another branch of the Dalian-Lushun railway branch, for Bohai Train Ferry.

Lushun has two train stations, but the photo of the train station does not match the actual photo.

This train station was rebuilt by the Japanese in 1905, but it retains Russian-style architecture.
