* Station Available

(But when you try to reserve on A'REX site, it says you have to complete the reservation at lease before 7 days.)

They seem to use a very literal translation for the Chinese for 'Airport'. The one they've used on the sign (空港)is one I've NEVER seen in China - I've always seen it translated to '飞机场'.

I assume that 空港鉄道 (Gonghang-cheoldo) is not Japanese, but Korean in hanja. Though the word 空港鉄道 (Kūkō-tetsudō) can be used as Japanese, Japanese kanji is slightly different from the traditional Chinese script (=hanja). 港, for instance, takes 己 in Japanese, not 巳.

at first, i really thought that the trains would be in those cylindrical structures--turned out to be indoor gardens...

yup, the trains are underground...

* * *

personally, i would consider this one of the best train rides i ever had--albeit short...

and for an 'accidental tourist' like me, it's a better alternative to the airport buses...i was kind of puzzled though since the train i took to Seoul was an express one, but the one i took on my way to Incheon made stops in the stations in its way to the airport...

i don't recall it clearly, but i think i paid a thousand won more for the ride to Seoul, and since the difference in time isn't that much, i guess it's a better deal to take the 'regular' train (although the express trains were better looking and they have attendants that bowed whenever they move from car to car, that really surprised me at first...)

You're right. Korean media also criticized that there're many wrong chinese which is not in use in china. A'REX route map in chinese use 机场 in Kimpo Airport sign but use 空港 in Incheon International Airport. However the information section of each station use 机场.

Korea also use 空港(己) and according to chinese dictionary, china also use 己.
I think the sign used 巷 mistakenly.

Wow, that looks really nice. Quite a few doors on those trains though, do they really need that many?

A'REX has two kind of trains, commuter train and express train. Commuter train is, as the name says, to be served as daily commuting so that there're many doors like subway.

Commuter Train









Express Train

What are the rules for photographing trains in S. Korea? By this I mean above ground trains (not subway trains underground- platform doors make this impossible anyway). I heard snapshots are OK, but railway officials don't like you if you stay to long on the platform just taking pictures, unless you ask for permission beforehand- is this true? I ask b/c I plan to visit Seoul this summer to take pictures mainly of Korail trains, and some of the older trains on subway lines 1 and 2. I like to linger on the platform for 30~50 min. (or longer), which is the style in Japan and other places where there are many railfans.

I get a confusion, that are Jungang, Bundang, Gyeongchun & Gyeongui lines metro? Or suburban rail?

Seoul’s Subway network is the only in South Korea, which is running reciprocal service between metro & suburban train. Especially for line 1, I think it uses both suburban train & metro. Sometimes metros go to suburbs, and sometimes suburban trains come to city centre via underground tunnel. Probably the gauge & current collection system is same (by overhead wire).



But I think after looking this map - Jungang, Bundang, Gyeongchun & Gyeongui are suburban train lines, because it crosses city limits and goes away.

Are these 4 lines uses underground tunnels, or run completely on surface?

Urban rail fans of Seoul please clear this, and write I’m right or wrong. Please clarify this.
