I also found a pdf in English dating back to 2010 regarding Gyeonggi Province planning and development; from pg. 18 it deals with GTX. The rest of the pdf is also interesting if you're into planning:

http://www.metropolis-server.com/arx...eon-Yu-sin.pdf

This pdf confirms that the GTX lines will indeed be at a depth of 40-50m with speeds up to 250km/h. Wow! No wonder it'll be so expensive...

Among interesting facts in the presentation: rail accounts for 13.5% of transportation in the Seoul metropolitan area, a surprisingly low number...I wonder if that includes the subway system?
The GTX plan is now on preliminary feasibility study stage, and 4~5 steps are still remained even if preliminary feasibility study get an approval. Furthermore the national assembly cut the total amount of the GTX research expenditure in the next year's budget proposal. Anyway I think we will have to wait and see where the project is heading.

Transportation Share Rate (as of 2009)

Nationwide
- Bus : 24.6%
- Rail : 15.9%

Seoul Metropolitan
- Bus + Rail : 54.3% ( I can't find individual data )

Seoul
- Bus : 28.8%
- Rail : 33.8%

Gyeongchun Line

Has the new express double-decker service started on the Gyeongchun line yet? I think trains will go from Yongsan, but I couldn't find an exact date - although a Facebook friend posted a pic of a double decker train. How often will they run?

Korail named the new express double-decker service as ITX 청춘 ( Intercity Train eXpress Cheongchun). The service will begin from next month, but the exact date, fare, and stop stations are not announced yet.

Hhahaha let me think... 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,... looks like i rode on those lines plus airport line too but it wasnt my task, i just visited the city. It just happened. I didnt ride other lines that have no numbers but names. So still a reason to come back to Seoul, right?

I was never told not to take any pics in metro - not in Seoul, or any other korean metro, and i took at least 10.000 pics there
will post some more later on.

Thanks for answering I was just curious because I've heard it's in Seoul metro that it's forbidden. So, thanks.

The only one metro where i was disturbed while taking pictures was PATH. But nobody said anything on the stations in New York - only in New Jersey they asked me to stop.

Here few more pics.




Notice how little space is left for passangers at his platform.
