I saw the bimodal tram at the Expo 2012 in Yeosu. It's a great new type of trams, but maybe more a bus than a tram?

On my blog, I wrote something about their unique system => http://seoulandkorea.blogspot.kr/201...-of-trams.html

A magnetic levitation train makes a trial run yesterday at Incheon International Airport during the completion ceremony of the test line for the urban magnetic levitation train. The Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs said the train will operate on a 6.1-kilometer (3.8-mile) section between Incheon Airport and Yongyu of Yeongjong Island in Incheon.

The system ("Phileas") was invented in Eindhoven, The Netherlands and is used there since 2004. But it is quite unreliable, they had to suspend the traffic twice, and the automatic guidance system is not used anymore. The driver now has to steer the vehicle by hand. So, it is indeed more a bus than a tram.

Thanks for the information. The Wiki-article about Phileas says:

On November 3, 2005 a license & technology transfer agreement was signed between Advanced Public Transport Systems (APTS) and the Korea Railroad Research Institute (KRRI). KRRI develops the Korean version of Phileas vehicle by May 2011.

Korea starts test run of homegrown maglev train

Quote:
Korea kicked off a trial run of a locally made magnetic levitation train on Thursday, marking a major step toward commercializing more eco-friendly transport services for its citizens, the government said.

The test operation kicked off on a 6.1-kilometer rail line built in a town near Incheon International Airport, and commercial service will begin in August next year, according to the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs.

A total of 413.5 billion won (US$382 million) has been spent on the pilot project, which the government launched in 2006 to commercialize an unmanned maglev train service.

Maglev trains use a powerful magnetic field to suspend them above rails, causing less noise and vibration than conventional ones. The train can run at a top speed of 110 km per hour, the ministry said.

The commercial operation in 2013 will be the second launch of an urban maglev transport service in the world following Japan, the ministry added. (Yonhap)

KTX and subway trains passing the river Han

I want to share three videos about urban transport in Seoul. If I remember it correctly, the river Han is the widest river which divides a large city. Therefore, it is really great to cross the Han river with subway or the KTX.

Here are some videos, all of them on the same route but at different seasons of the year:

Subway Line No. 1:




View out of the KTX on the Han River and yeah, the river is frozen:




And one more time the view out of a KTX, this time a look at the other side, and I believe that it was in the autumn:

That's indeed very interesting, quite efficient use of space IMO.

I'm quite curious about Daegu monorail system. I think monorails really are the future of transportation and with hige projects underway all over the planet it looks like Monorails are finally getting the respect they deserve as affordable mass/rapid transit.

I am surprised thou at the relatively low capacity of the Daegu system. Like all transit systems it's not the current train lengths but rather their potential. In Vancouver new SkyTrain stations are built at 70 meters and only run 36 meter trains {although frequency is up to every 90 seconds each way} but they number of trains can be doubled to use the current station length and all are built to be able to be easily expanded to 100 meters to accomodate 3 36 meter trains if ever needed in the future.

How large are the current trains they will run and most importantly how large are the stations........the potential pphpd capacity of the system?

Thanks.

I agree fully! A very recent example of this is the KL (Kuala Lumpur) monorail system. They have had 2 car trains for many years now and the system needed to expand. New 4 car trains should be being delivered as we speak but they have had to retrofit and expand almost all of the 11 stations to accommodate the longer trains.

It seems like so much extra money and additional construction because they didn't have the foresight to build the system with growth in mind from the beginning.

This is a picture I took in October, 2012 of the Maharajalela Station. You can see the white supports for the platform extension.
