History and architecture
When the metro network and two of the 3 modern far-distance railway stations were established, most passenger traffic was directed towards the south, were the other major cities like Finkyáse, Kippa, Jaka or Kwaengdō were situated. Northbound rail traffic remained monstly cargo based. However, with the growth of cities such as Makalasueng, Busakyueng and Góhomi passengers more and more demanded transport to these location. Getting there from Limbē-Dyanchezi or Aku-Dyanchezi meant long detours and track shunting; so, as traffic increased, it was decided to build a third far-distance railway station, consequently named Kibō-Dyanchezi. The station was finished and opened in 1909.
With the introduction of high-speed passenger railway services, the question arose whether the routes via Formajiá to Arákkanai, Toefyei and Tsuyenji were to start from Aku-Dyanchezi in the city's growing CDB, or from Kibō-Dyanchezi in the north east. In the end it was decided to route the long-distance high-speed services to the northern station, to keep more capacity for regional trains at the southern terminus in favour of the many commuters from the southern part of the wider Pyingshum area that commute to the new CBD on a daily basis. Also this induced synergy effects for the underdeveloped north east of the inner city. Today the area is, besides small exceptions, not anymore considered impoverished, but instead one of the last affordable but high-in-demand residential quarters.
