I don't know which stations you refer to. I think some stations are clean because they are new and some are clean because they are well managed by staffs and passengers. No vandalism in korea and camera magic could be the another possible reasons.

Maglev Train in Daejeon

Quote:
The first maglev utilizing electromagnetic suspension opened to public was HML-03, which was made by Hyundai Heavy Industries, for Daejeon Expo in 1993 after five years of research and manufacturing two prototypes; HML-01 and HML-02. Research for urban maglev using electromagnetic suspension began in 1994 by the government. The first urban maglev opened to public was UTM-02 in Daejeon on 21 April 2008 after 14 years of development and building one prototype; UTM-01. The urban maglev runs on 1 km track between Expo Park and National Science Museum. Meanwhile UTM-02 remarked an innovation by conducting the world's first ever maglev simulation. However UTM-02 is still the second prototype of a final model. The final UTM model of Rotem's urban maglev, UTM-03, is scheduled to debut at the end of 2012 in Incheon's Yeongjong island where Incheon International Airport is located.

In Korea Urban-Type Maglev train is not proven yet as a reliable urban mass transit, but with the beginning of Incheon Urban-Type Maglev project, some cities are considering Urban-Type Maglev train as their new mass transit system.

Nooriro(누리로) Made Debut Today

Nooriro(누리로) began its operation today. Nooriro was called as Shin-Chang Liner or TEC before, but Korail now named it Nooriro. It will substitute all of MooGungHwa Class trains by 2020. (about korean train classes) Peoples expected that the fare of this train would be included in Seoul-Metropolitan fare system so that the fare is the same as Seoul Metro Transitbut it didn't.
As a result the fare is higher than normal metro transit.



With Seoul Subway Line 1 extended to Sinchang, the need to get faster trains with lesser stations was increased so that Korail purchased express trains(EMU), so called TEC(Trunk line Electric Car), from Hitachi. As a result it looks alike Hitachi's A-trains Series 683. It's scheduled to be operated in May or June, 2009.

I hope North Korea doesn't start some shit and attack South Korea. S. Korea has such advanced infrastructure, it would be tragic to see any of it damaged or destroyed by war.

That sorta statement is just as ignorant as NKoreans launching war. War is stupid, and so is a lack of free speech, but let's leave politics to the politicians.

This space is for the disabled person on wheelchair. Basically, you can't take a ride on subway, if not with folding-type bicyle, with bicyle. But it's sometimes possible that if you don't use it at rush hour and you get a permission from staffs, you may take on subway with bicycle.
