Are the Bulguksa Station buildings from the Japanese colonial era? And do you know why Nampyeong Station is a registered cultural property?

According to Korail website, Bulguksa station was opened in November, 1918. And the current station was built in December, 1936.


Registered Cultural Heritage
Quote:
The Registered Cultural Heritage refers to architectural structures or monumental facilities of early modern or modern times, that have significant values and thus need to be preserved.

Source : Cultural Heritage Administration of Korea
Nampyeong Staton
Quote:
  • Classification : Registered Culture No. 299
  • Quantity : 90.6㎡
  • Designated Date : 2006.12.04
  • Owner : Korail and Ministry of Construction & Transportation(Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs)
  • Description :

    The station started its work in December, 1930 as a summary station and was promoted to an ordinary station in May 1948 and was destroyed by fire in 1950 due to the Yeosu Rebellion Incident and was reconstructed in July 1956.

    The direction to the plaza of Nampyeong Station is the rear side and the direction to the railroad is the front side which looks comparatively simple.

    The projecting roof of the office of the station staff is moim-roof not matbae-roof, which is very exceptional. The material of the roof is wrinkled tin, but panel-styled material was used for the extended part of the roof.

    Below the gable part where the waiting-room is located along the railroad, canopy was put and the windows were made on the left side.

    At the beginning, the wooden window frames were used, but now aluminum chassis is substituted for wood.

    The plan of the railroad designates diverse forms of architecture.

    The gable-roof on the waiting room, the roof which covers the projecting space of the front part of the office of station staff and the long marquee-roof in front of the waiting room designate the form of the building very distinctly.

    The pillars supporting the marquee-roof were put with a brace at the part of the ceiling in order to endure long.

ruready thank you for the very nice pics of the tidy rural stations, these have more character than any modern ones that honestly could be located any where in the world. If you find any stations that still use semaphore signals, please post them.

Though these stations may have seen rebuilding over their lives, I can detect the subtle Japanese design origins in some small details. For example the disused freight siding and platform at Bulguksa Sta., the wooden station signs on the platforms, yellow/black striping of crossing sleepers, and coloring of switchstand target indicators. Taiwan railways has even stronger elements left over as a result of its Japanese colonial origins (most notably, 1067mm gauge).

According to unofficial information, there are only two stations, Samhwa and Jupyeong station.

Many small stations, as you said, were built in Japanese colonial period and have not been rebuilt due to the declining passenger numbers so that there are many resemblance between them.

This station is old Naju station not in use. It's a rare case that old station is well-preserved.

Agreed. I need to take a second look at Korea; I came here twice during the winter and I thought it was the dullest and ugliest thing I've ever seen.

You should come in the warmer months when everything is much greener. Northeast Asia can be quite drab and gray in winter.

*Ruready, thank you for the addt'l pics, including the preserved station!

Speeding up Incheon Airport Railroad

According to KR(Kora Rail Network Authority), several measures to vitalize Incheon Airport Railroad passed through the pre-evaluation(preliminary feasibility study).
  • Improving track, signal, electric equipment to enable 120km/h travel speed.
  • Replacing the current 110 km/h trains with new 180km/h trains.
  • Diversifying destinations
    - Current : Seoul station
    - Adding : Yongsan station
  • Securing direct connection
    - KTX and Incheon Airport Railroad via Gyeongui Line(extending KTX service to Incheon Airport and North Incheon)
    - Line 9 and Incheon Airport Railroad
  • Incorporating the fare of some section into Seoul Metropolitan Integrated Fare System



Anway Incheon Airport Railroad phase 2 was completed and will begin operation on December, 29.

Bad continuity in the first clip. The train crossing the bridge has an electric locomotive, but the driver's point of view shots were filmed on an unelectrified line.

You are right. As you can see in the clips, the station itself has no catenary.

Anyway the actual station named as Migang station in this drama is Hwabon station on Jungang Line. See this blog.

Seriously, it's no fun when even on the express trains you are being passed by cars and buses on the adjoining highway...

Another item I'd add to the list: move the station into the terminal at Incheon!

I've never used Incheon Airport Railroad, but I can understand your feeling. I think moving the station into the terminal is impossible or will be very expensive(if possible). Installing moving walk on the passage, considering that the current station is not far from the terminal, will be good option.

TV Program about Mokpo station and 2km-long Samhakdo Line in Mokpo.

Samhakdo Line was constructed to transport cargo(mostly coal) from and to Mokpohang station(or Mokpo Port statio). This line is practically the only remaining railway in korea, which runs closely on street level. Due to the low demand of coal, rail services have been constantly decreased and it will stop operation from next year.

They already have moving walkways. Anyway, nothing is impossible in Korea. And they could sell the current station to pay for the new one--it would make for a nice performance venue.
