Dazhimen Station

Dazhimen Station (大智門火車站) was the southest station of the Beijing–Hankou Railway. It was built in 1900–1903, located at the interchange of today's Jinghan Road and Chezhan Road, Jiangan District, Wuhan. Its service was stopped in 1991, when the new Hankou Railway Station was completed. In 2001 it was named a Major National Historical and Cultural Site.

The station building is a brick-wood structure with two floors, designed by French architects in a German medieval style. It has an area of 4,000 square meters, with the waiting room occupying 1,022 square meters. The whole building is symmetrical, divided crossways into five sections. There were four 20-meter-high towers at the corners of the central section.[1]
