ⓘ Beijing Subway restricted stations

Beyond Pingguoyuan, the terminus that is accessible to the public, there are three other stations on Line 1, Beijing Subway.

Gaojing and Heishitou are located in the Beijing Military Region which is part of the Central Theater Command, therefore rendering them inaccessible to the public.

Fushouling station will open to public in several years. The renovation for Fushouling station will start in late 2020. The station will also serve the nearby Beijing Banking & Insurance Business Park 北京银行保险产业园.

                                     

1. Fushouling station 52#/No. 102

Fushouling station simplified Chinese: 福寿岭站 ; traditional Chinese: 福壽嶺站 ; pinyin: Fushoulǐng Zhàn is actually the third last station of Line 1, Beijing Subway. This station is located near the Metro Drivers Vocational School. It was initially planned as the terminus for Line 1; it was included in older maps such as this map.

Before May 28, 2007, two Line 1 trains stopped by this station each day to allow students of the vocational school and workers to alight; one stopped in the morning and one stopped in the evening. The station is served by several public bus routes, some of which bypass Pingguoyuan station. Of the four entrances/exits, only one was readily accessible until the stations full closure; the other three entrances/exits were sealed with cement long ago, and the remaining entrance is locked behind a metal gate. Since the stations full closure, trains no longer stop at the station; however, some trains pass by the station to reverse by traveling through a balloon loop west of the station.

There are plans to reopen the station to the public, due to redevelopment of the area around the station. The renovation for Fushouling station will start in late 2020. The station will also serve the nearby Beijing Banking & Insurance Business Park 北京银行保险产业园.

3. Heishitou station 54#

Although officially a defunct railway station thus having no subway code number, Heishitou station 黑石头站 ; 黑石頭站 ; Hēishitou Zhàn is often considered a disused station on Line 1 by the general public, probably due to its location on a disused China Railway military-only branch line which happens to link to line 1. There are two side platforms with space for two tracks. The unofficial name of the Heishitou station is derived from its proximity to the nearby Heishitou Village located in Shijingshan District, Beijing, in the Western Hills. There is a secret bunker-like facility used as an underground command centre by the Chinese military dating back to the 1950s similar to the Pentagon, thus rendering this part of the Western Hills inaccessible to the public.
