If I'm not mistaken, this is an alternative render of the Incheon Subway line 2 vehicle.

If only they would have gone with this model.

AREX

I heard that AREX would be opening from Gimpo to Seoul Station soon. There is a pop-up on the website http://www.arex.or.kr/jsp/main.jsp, but unfortunately, I can't understand it! I suspect it might talk about preliminary test runs, then an opening at the end of Dec. I really hope it is open soon, I have a visitor coming in at 5.30am one morning soon, and the train would make things a lot easier! Also, any news on the line out to Chuncheon?

The pop-up on the website about test runs. They are now receiving applications for trial run for public. AREX(or Airport Railroad) Phase II will begin operation on December, 29.

Gyeongchun Line will begin operation on December, 21.

Gyeongchun Line

Thanks as always, Ruready! I have to rely on Wiki - and you, of course! - for the latest updates. So the Gyeongchun line will be integrated into the subway system, right? But is there also still a faster, railroad line out to Chuncheon, from Cheongnyangni station? Or is it all the same? I am planning my trips out there around Christmas for some 닭갈비

The current mugunghwa class train between Cheongnyangni and Chuncheon will be abolished. Instead express trains between Yongsan and Chuncheon will begin service by the end of next year.

In short, there will be two type trains on Gyeongchun Line after being integrated into the subway : Normal Train (between Sin-sangbong and Chuncheon) and Express Train (between Yongsan and Chuncheon, schduled to begin its operation by the end of next year with additional fare). According to current plan, Gyeongchun Subway Line trains will not stop at Cheongnyangni station due to the shortage of carrying capacity.

And the fare will be reduced by half.
- Current Fare(between Cheongnyangni and Chuncheon) : 5400 won
- After Dec.21(between Sin-Sangbong and Chuncheon) : 2600 won

Go to http://www.monorails.org/tMspages/Daejeon1.html to see pictures of my first trip to Daejeon.

It's a useless demonstration project which will have no practical impact. Slow train from the airport to Seoul (60km distant, max 120 km/h), Maglev from the airport in the other direction, to small villages and empty fields.

It looks like it will be very convenient to get to Chuncheon! Is it known yet when Sinnae Station, the extension of Line 6, will open, so it can connect to the Gyeongchun Line?

According to several news, Sinnae Station will begin operation in 2012. Specific date is unknown yet.

Yes. Low platform for current rail service and high platform for use after the upgrade. When Gyeongchun Line is integrated into Seoul Metropolitan Transit, the low platform will be removed maybe.

Those are beautiful trains!!

On an unrelated note, I was wondering if anyone has news or pictures of the new maglev system being built at the Incheon International Airport? Back in August they announced the groundbreaking for the system but I haven't heard anything since. Does anyone have any information???

There are few information or news related to Incheon Maglev, except for the groundbreaking news like this. It seems that rail fans are not much interested in maglev trains, resulting in rare apperance on the web. Anyhow you would get more information when the construction is nearing completion and it starts test run, I think.

That's a shame. I see a great future for urban maglevs. Maglev systems require much less long term maintenance to the track and trains and are much quieter than their steel wheel on rail counterparts, especially around curves.

All the info is in a display area on the ground floor of the Airport Train terminal at Incheon--they have a model of the train system, maps, sketches, renderings, even a brochure, and everything is in Korean and English.

The only time I've been there--and it's a nice, grand space--was killing time a few months ago, but I will be at the airport again in a month or so, I'll try to take some pics unless someone beats me to it.
