If you have a chance, please take and post some pictures! I would like to see some pictures of the track with the beams installed! Thanks!

Daegu Monorail

I blogged about Daegu's Monorail line recently. I know others posted some info on it a while back so I'm not sure if there are any new details. Anyway, have a look if you're interested.

Incheon Maglev Construction

Just a quick snap of the the maglev construction at Incheon International Airport taken yesterday. I'll have a couple more posts relating to Incheon Airport and maglev sometime soon (hopefully). Will let you know if I put anything up.

This photo was taken where the tracks leave the terminal's transport centre. It seems as if they have waited until near the end of the track construction to link it up.



Here are the tracks inside the transport centre and what I assume is the platform in the middle. The tubes themselves seem much too narrow to have a platform inside. Note: This photo is where the tracks begin and not where they leave the building.

I wonder why they put glass on the side of the tracks outside the boarding area.

ITX Chuncheon trains

Thanks, Ruready! How often do those trains run? It looks like they take about 68 minutes? Also, how do you use those card readers? My Korean is OK, but not that good - they look like they are not regular T-money card readers? I am looking forward to using it!

Normally one train every hour.
Here is Time schedule : http://www.mediafire.com/?76gjdl3eqdde57l

You can't use T-money card when you ride on ITX-Cheongchun because it require a physical ticket and it's not included in so-called Seoul Metropolitan Integrated Fare System, so there's no transfer discounts.(though you can pay for the ticket with cash, credit card, T-money.)



The card reader is just for the convenience of passengers. If there's no card reader like this, you should exit the gate and re-enter.

* When you transfer from ITX-Cheongchun to Metro or Subway trains
- Do not exit the gate
- Tag T-money or transportationc card on the left side(written as '승차용')
- Then transfer to Metro or Subway trains

* When you transfer from Metro or Subway trains to ITX-Cheongchun
- Do not exit the gate
- Tag T-money or transportation card on the right side(written as '하차용')
- Buy ITX-Cheongchun ticket at the ticket machine
- Then transfer to ITX-Cheongchun

Glad to see what is basically an advanced commuter rail service from Seoul all the way to Chuncheon. I imagine it will be very popular during the ski season. Perhaps I'm way off track, but is this part of the line that will be further upgraded as part of the Seoul-Sokcho HSR line that's supposed to happen sometime this decade?

There're no set plans for Seoul-Sokcho HSR line yet. According to government's 2010~2020 railway plan Seoul-Sokcho line classified as reviewing is described as 'Suseo(seoul) ~ Chuncheon ~ Sokcho', not 'Seoul ~ via Gyeongchun line ~ Chuncheon ~ Sokcho'. So we don't know at this stage where the plan is heading.

Some more ITX-Cheongchun video:


runby:


I like how the name of the service combines the characters for the starting and ending points of the Gyeongchun Line, as well as alluding to the youthful memories this line is associated with. 4 motor cars, 4 trailer cars, max speed 180km/h, which apparently is highest for non-ktx rolling stock.

Nice side view of the ITX trainset. That sounds like an EMD-engined diesel idling in the background behind the photographer.

It's great to see Hyundai Rotem developing this. Even if it was designed with export in mind, it could be successful domestically as well. Korean cities tend to be very dense, so networks with a few well-chosen corridors could work in quite a few places. Jeonju, Ulsan, and Suwon (to name just a few) ought to jump on this.

Currently more than 8 cities are interested in building tram, even though most are just in a conceptual stage or in preliminary feasibility test stage.

- Seoul
- Gyeonggi
- Incheon
- Suwon
- Seongnam
- Ulsan
- Changwon
- Cheongju
- Jeju
