The Shengxing Train Station is located at the highest point of the western railway trunkline, 402.326 meters above sea level. The train station, completed in 1906, is built entirely of wood in the Japanese huya (lit. Teeth of a Tiger) style, which is supposed to ward off evil spirits. Many artifacts from the Japanese occupation period can still be seen here, such as the old train signals that originally stood between the Shengxing and Tai-an Station, which were later replaced by a central control system.

At 9:10 p.m. on September 23, 1998, the southbound No. 167 pulled to a stop, marking the end of train service on the Jiu Mountain (Jiushan) Line as traffic switched to the New Jiu Mountain (Jiushan) Line.

Though the trains no longer stop at Shengxing Station, the station endures as a nostalgic tourist attraction. The station is a popular location for wedding photos, and visitors come to walk the abandoned tunnel. The area has also risen as a new destination for cross-country cycling. On April 16, 1999, the Miaoli County Government designated Shengxing Station as a municipal heritage.
