I mentioned previously about the project of bringing the KTX to Incheon Station,

Big news from yesterday, as the project has been greenlit. A 3.5km connection will be built between the Suin Line and the Gyeongbu HSR.

Construction will begin in 2018 and be completed in 2021.

Travel times to Busan will be reduced from 3h28 to 2h40 (48 minute gain), and travel times to Gwangju will be reduced from 2h48 to 1h55 (53 minute gain).

I just read about plans to bring the KTX (and train service overall...) to Incheon. Of course, there's already the KTX on the AREX Line, but Geoman station hasn't been used much by Incheon residents, because it requires them to go all the way North to Geoman, then enter Seoul and stopping at Seoul Station (if not Yongsan). Which makes going straight to Seoul or Gwangmyeong (by Subway Line 1) to take the KTX a better option for most Incheon residents.

The new plan will use the Suin Line : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suin_Line

Right now, the Suin line has two strategic and nodal termini : Buttf**k Nowhere (aka. Oido Station) and S**thole Station (aka Songdo station, which isn't even located in the new Songdo). However, as you all know, this is about to change. By December, the line will extend to Incheon Station. It still won't change the shape of the Earth, because the line will only go to Oido through Sinheung and Ansan. That is until 2017, as the line should finally extend to Suwon (hence the Su(won)-In(Cheon) name), and eventually merge with the Bundang line, all the way up to Seoul.

There have been plans this last year, and further confirmed this July, to use this line to bring the KTX to Incheon.

http://news.kbs.co.kr/news/view.do?ncd=2889909

http://enews.incheon.go.kr/main/php/...&section_sub=7

Here's an other video of the project with a nice map (at 1:12) of the project to explain it all


The KTX wouldn't actually use the entire Suin Line and not go all the way to Suwon (which doesn't have an HSR line, although it has KTX service on a conventional line). A 2.4km connection would be built between the Suin Line and the Gyeongbu HSR line a few kilometers west of Suwon.

On the map, the blue line is the future completed Suin Line, the green line is the Gyeongbu HSR line, and the orange line is the conventional rail line with KTX service in Suwon

Once again, non-level-boarding platforms. Are future KTX trains set to have lower boarding heights, or is this just an oversight? Seems like a very strange one for a newly-built station.

I know other stations are served by non-KTX trains, had always imagined the platform height difference was so the Mugunghwa and Saemul trains could stop. But there aren't plans for non-KTX at the Suseo station? I thought the GTX trains would be served underground at this point?

What is the difference between SRT and KTX? Are they 2 separate divisions of Korail or are they separate operating companies?

SRT is a subsidiary setup by Korail to operate the Suseo high-speed line, supposedly to introduce competition to South Korean intercity rail travel.

Korea to develop double-deck high-speed train
Monday, November 14, 2016



KOREA Railroad Research Institute (KRRI) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Hyundai Rotem and Korail in Seoul on November 10 pledging to collaborate on a project to develop Korea’s first double-deck high-speed train

Hyundai Rotem will be responsible for design, production and maintenance of the train, while Korail will manage test operations on the Korean high-speed network. KRRI will be responsible for measuring and evaluating the performance of the 300km/h train

Suseo open access operator poised to launch
18 Nov 2016





SOUTH KOREA: High speed open access services will commence on December 8 with the launch of trains operated by Supreme Railways.

Owned 41% by national operator Korail, SR will use a new line from Suseo in the southern district of Seoul which joins the Gyongbu high speed line to Busan at a junction near Pyeongtaek. The new 60 km line running mainly in tunnel has intermediate stations at Dongtan and Jije which will be used by GTX high speed commuter services from 2021

Just realized, by the way, that SRT trains and Honam KTX trains have the exact same livery....Boring.

Does anybody know if there are any concrete standarts for high-speed rolling stock in Korea (like TSI in directive 96/48/EC in Europe or Technical regulatory standarts for Shinkansen in Japan)? As my understanding is, there are only KS standarts, but I could find only KS R 9211 "Wheels for rolling stock", where maximum speed was 150 km/h...

Notice the big gap between the trainset and the platform, seems the trainsets adopted European loading gauge, but the track loading gauge is similar to Japanese/Chinese loading gauge(3.4 metres), the reason could be if building high platforms, the gap will pose a safety hazard to the passengers.

So, if I understand you correctly, the doors into the train cars are higher off the ground than other East Asian trains? Wish I could find some more data on HSR rolling stock.

Design for High-speed Station in Western Daegu Approved, Construction to begin in 2017
Quote:
Yesterday Daegu City announced that it had completed the basic design of new KTX station to be built in western Daegu, or Seodaegu, after it was approved by the Ministry of Land Transportation.

KTX, Suseo SRT and Daegu regional railway services will be accessible from the station which is expected to open in 2020. The design takes a ‘ship-like theme’, and the majority of the station is based over the tracks. It’s hoped the construction of the station will increase development in the area.

Seodaegu station will be three stories high and construction on the project will cost 57.3 billion won, with 14.2 billion won to be funded by the central government and the remainder by the city. Daegu City is scheduled to sign an agreement with the Korea Railroad Authority Corporation for construction of the station next month, with construction to get underway next year.

Once construction is complete, it’s hoped that the new station will revitalize the industrial parks in the western and southern parts of Daegu, while making traveling more convenient for the 1.48 million residents living in the area.

Another major benefit will be reducing the crowds at Dongdaegu Station, which currently serves 176 KTX trains and 80 SRT trains per day.

“We will actively pursue various plans such as development around station areas and urban regeneration, so that construction of Seodaegu Station can bring major development to the south-western area of Daegu.” said Kwon Young-jin, Mayor of Daegu.
Hopefully this new station is built nearer the middle of the city; too many of these new stations are built in the middle of nowhere. Also, hopefully they emphasize pedestrian-friendliness over automobile-friendliness around the station.

New HST orders

Korail orders fleet of 260 km/h EMUs Railway Gazette 03 Jan 2017

Quote:
National operator Korail announced a 269bn won order for 84 Hyundai Rotem EMU-250 electric multiple-unit cars on December 30. Deliveries are scheduled by the by the end of 2020.
Derived from the HEMU-430 experimental high speed design unveiled in 2012, the EMU-250 has distributed traction giving a maximum service speed of 260 km/h.
It is not clear to me if the price is for each train or for each car. The previous order for this same series is much clearer:
Quote:
Hyundai Rotem will provide 30 HEMU trains, EMU-250`s, at 3.4 billion won (USD 2.9 million) per carriage, or 102 billion won (USD 85 million) in total
But are wrong: “3.4 billion won per carriage, or 102 billion won in total” there are 30 cars, not 30 trains. In the Wikipedia says that there will be 6 trains, which means a cost per 5 cars train of 13,43 million euros. That yes.
Returning to the last order: 84 cars divided between 5 cars per train are 16.8 which does not make sense either. Can there be 16 trains plus 4 spare cabin-car? The new order will have 6 cars per train?


Part of the first news: Korail orders fleet of 260 km/h EMUs Railway Gazette 03 Jan 2017
Quote:
On December 22 Korail ordered a pair of eight-car 320 km/h HEMU trainsets at a cost of 59bn won.
Looking for more information:
Hyundai Rotem Wins High-speed Rolling Stock Order from KORAIL The Korea Economic Daily
Quote:
It takes only 230 seconds for the cars to reach the speed of 300 kilometers per hour, about 1.26 seconds faster than KTX-Sancheon's 316 seconds. This order marked the second high-speed electric multiple unit (HEMU) train car order for Hyundai Rotem. Compared to existing train cars where electric traction is equipped at the front and end of the train, the HEMU train car has electric traction equipped on each carriage, thereby enabling faster acceleration and helping save space.
The new train cars will have 40-50 percent more seats than KTX-Sancheon (363 seats). Hyundai Rotem plans to deliver the train cars by March 2021.
Just two trains? But I have other information.
Korea to develop double-deck high-speed train IRJ November 14, 2016
Quote:
Project to develop Korea’s first double-deck high-speed train.

Hyundai Rotem will be responsible for design, production and maintenance of the train, while Korail will manage test operations on the Korean high-speed network. KRRI will be responsible for measuring and evaluating the performance of the 300km/h train.

Under the MoU, the development and production of two prototype cars is due to be completed by the end of next year. The MoU envisages that the articulated train will be available for commercial operation by 2023.

Korail says the train will seat up to 1404 passengers.
Which is nothing like: “The new train cars will have 40-50 percent more seats than KTX-Sancheon (363 seats)”.

@Gusiluz That is quite a confusing bunch of information.

So, Korail has ordered a set of 260kmh EMU trainsets AND a set of 320kmh EMU trainsets?

I think that the double-decker trainset is to based on the locomotive KTX-Sancheon.
