The station was called Zhenru Railway Station when it was initially put into use in the 33rd year of Guangxu in the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911). At that time, it was a small station on the Hu-Ning Railway. After the founding of the PRC, the station was expanded and became one of the main freight stations in Shanghai, along with the East Railway Station. Since 1980, the station was open to passenger transport and gradually became an assistant station for passenger transport. In January 1989, the name of the station was changed into Shanghai West Railway Station. Since the station lies on the intersection point of the Outer Ring of Hu-Hang Railway and the Hu-Ning Railway, it has become the second busiest station in the city after Shanghai Railway Station.
