As the Qingdao–Jinan railway could be used to transport a large number of soldiers through the mountainous countryside of the Shandong Peninsula, it was of great military significance during the Warlord Era 1916–1928 and Nanjing decade 1928–1937 of China, as various warlords used it in their conflicts In late 1932, the railway saw heavy fighting as warlord Han Fuju sought to capture its eastern section from his rival Liu Zhennian during a war for eastern Shandong Liu's troops managed to beat off the attacks, forcing Han to resort to the region's road network which was of bad quality at the time to move his army, significantly prolonging the war[2] Nevertheless, Han eventually won, unifying all of Shandong under his rule[3]

It was originally opened by the German-owned Shantung Railway Company, and after the Germans were defeated in China by the Japanese during the First World War, it passed to Chinese control as the Jiaoji Railway Company After the Japanese occupation of northern China during the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Jiaoji Railway was nationalised and made part of the North China Transportation Company After the establishment of the People's Republic of China, the railway became part of China Railway
