The current Ninh Binh Railway Station was constructed in 2015. The new station is considerably larger than the old station, with a greater number of tracks to accommodate freight trains and maintenance work. The other striking thing about the newly constructed Ninh Binh Railway Station is that the shape of the building and the construction materials used are reminiscent of the prayer halls at Bai Dinh Pagoda, which is one of the province’s main tourist attractions.

Ninh Binh Railway Station has two platforms. Both these platforms are raised so that passengers don’t need to climb up or down from the train to enter or exit the train in the same way that passengers need to at older railway stations in Vietnam. This makes Ninh Binh Railway Station one of the Vietnam’s more wheelchair friendly train stations.
