I think it's fifty-fifty as of now. If they become convinced, they would try to push the maximum speed higher for the record, or else they would not. And the government has a plan to install 400km/h test bed section on Honam HSR line as a test purpose, even though the targeted operation speed for this train is 370km/h.

That plan is still ongoing based on 'National Railway Plan 2011~2020'.

Double-decker KTX to ply Seoul-Daejon route
(Chosun Ilbo, July 20)

Quote:
A double-decker train will be in operation as early as 2016. The Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs on Thursday said it commissioned the Korea Railroad Research Institute to look into the feasibility of a double-decker KTX in April. The actual feasibility study will begin next year.

The aim is to increase passenger capacity on Seoul-Daejeon route, which has long been saturated.

When you are running 18 car length trains, I suppose the only way to increase capacity is to start using double deck cars, though you have to be careful to not increase station dwell times. Does anybody know the headways on this stretch of track (trains per hour?)

Well, as nobody seems to know, I checked a monthly timetable book, the one that sells for 5000 won at the kiosks, and it seems the typical headway is 10 to 20 minutes. Probably you could squeeze in another train, but perhaps that's hindered by capacity restrictions on the low speed lines into Seoul Station.

New KTX service Jinju-Seoul

I have not much information but according Kojects, the new KTX service between Seoul and Jinju (South Gyeongsang) has started this week through the new double track electrified Gyeongjeon Line.



It's a total of 53.3km from Masan to Jinju with five new station: Jinju, Banseong, Gunbuk, Hanam and Jungri.

KTX trains from Seoul to Jinju runs five times a day (six on mondays) in both direction in 3 and a half hours.

Hyundai's KTX-II is one of world's most advanced high-speed train sets.

Hi everyone, just wanted to let you know that Kojects has been relaunched so we should have more info about high speed rail in South Korea up soon. Particularly looking forward to hearing more info about the GTX lines and HEMU this year, so will try and keep you posted.

Really? A heavy power car in stead of distributed traction? It seems to be just a TGV in a Korean jacket.

I'm not dissing the thing, I like the way it looks, but calling it 'one of the most advanced' requires a little bit more argumentation

Good to hear; I check your site periodically to look for new developments. And I'm also really looking forward to hearing about those two, especially the GTX. Dunno if you know more about it than I do, but it's basically just a very deep, high-speed network of lines to better connect Seoul satellite cities, right? I haven't heard of anything like that anywhere else.

Thought the same, didn't want to risk offence. (Yes rather out of character I know)
