The characters go from Seoul to Seoraksan. Would that involve a trip on the Gyeongchun line?
The station in the movie is Gangneung station(강릉역) on Yeongdong Line. The trip to Gangneung station doesn't involve Gyeongchun line.

My understanding is that the old line will be abandoned, and all rail services will be the high platform metro type which started. As per wikipedia (which is of course not reliable) all the old conventional rail services terminated at (Seoul) Cheongnyangni Station. If in fact there were through services to points beyond Seoul I would be interested also, but the picture of the Namchuncheon station fare table tellingly shows fares only as far as Cheongnyangni, though there are KTX fares to the right, services to which I assume require a transfer to a metro line to get to. Ruready likely has the definitive answer.

The intercity service between Cheongnayangni and Chuncheon was abolished when Gyeongchun line was integrated into Seoul Metropolitan Subway. Anyway the new EMU-180 express train service (design speed 180km/h) between Yongsan and Chuncheon station with minimal stops, to be lauched on the end of next year, would be kind of intercity service. When being put into service next year, it will shorten the travel time from 63minutes (normal express train), 79 minutes (normal train) to around 40 minutes.

The Airport railway from Incheon Int Airport to Seoul Railway Station completed construction and commenced its first operation today.

The length is 58 km and the time is 43 mins, pasengers can forward luggages directly between the two stations.


By 2012 , KTX high speed raiway will be connected to Incheon Airport, that means passengers from Incheon Airport can arrive in Busan by 2hrs /40 mins by KTX.

The foreign visitors from Incheon Airport to the southern part of SK (whose purpose usually to visit the heavy industrial complex)
will be able to move directly by KTX in less than 3 hrs without any transport transfer.

KTX bullet train derails near Seoul

GWANGMYEONG, South Korea, Feb. 11 (Yonhap) -- A high-speed KTX train bound for Seoul from the southern port city of Busan derailed near a Gyeonggi Province station southwest of the capital Friday, but no casualties were reported, the state-run Korea Railroad said.

The incident took place near Gwangmyeong Station, southwest of Seoul, at 1:20 p.m. and forced Seoul-bound KTX lanes to shut down as of Friday afternoon.

"There are no casualties and we are driving back the derailed train," said a Korea Railroad official. "We are looking into the exact cause of the accident."

Question: day trip from Seoul

I have a question for ruready 1000 (or anyone else w/knowledge). I may visit Seoul for a few days in late March, and am interested in taking a day trip by train outside of the city. I am interested in riding locomotive-hauled trains (not emu or KTX), and also seeing some freight trains. Can you suggest a good railway line and/or station to watch trains? I was thinking of taking a mugungwha train on the Jungang Line as far as Yeongju, but are there some other good places? The old Gyeongchun Line trains are very appealing to me, but the new line is too modern for my tastes, unfortunately. Thanks.

By any chance is this derailment on the section where the KTX-Sancheon had problems before?

I think riding on Jungang Line is a good choice if you want to ride locomotive-hauled trains. But the problem is that there're not much Mugunghwa class trains on this line (8 trains on one way a day). If you don't care about the scenery and travelling time, I think you had better ride on Gyeongbu or Honam line because there're plenty of Mugunghwa class trains.

How about Namyeong station(남영역) between Yongsan station and Seoul station? If I live in Seoul, I could give you more information but I'm sorry I couldn't.(If I find the good location to spot on trains I will let you know.)

If you mean the train malfunctioned at tunnel before, it was Geumjeong tunnel in Busan. The section the derailment occured is neary Gwangmyeong station in Gyeonggi province.

About the accident, Korail says :

Quote:
A bullet train derailed near Gwangmyeong Station in Gyeonggi Province at around 1:05 p.m. Friday, disrupting operations and causing inconveniences for passengers for many hours.

No major casualties were reported, with only one passenger sustaining a minor injury, said Korea Railroad (Korail), the train’s operator.

The high-speed KTX train, bound for Seoul from Busan 400, stopped in the tunnel about 300 meters from the Gwangmyeong station after the rear six cars out of the total 10 separated from the rails, according to Korail officials.

It is the first time that the bullet train has derailed, Korail officials said.

“We presume some malfunctioning in the railroad switching control system caused the accident. We are examining the exact cause of the accident,” said Kim Heung-sung, a spokesman for Korail. Kim said it seems that the train itself had no mechanical faults.

Among the 147 passengers onboard, a 63-year-old woman was taken to a nearby hospital for minor pain in her back. But no one was seriously injured as the train was going slowly to soon stop at the station.

The passengers had to walk to the station through the tunnel and were refunded their fares by the train operator.

As the train covered both northbound and southbound lines, operation of dozens of KTX trains in both directions was delayed. With the accident, bullet trains had to use the rails for lower-speed trains instead of the exclusive rails for KTX between Seoul and Daejeon.

Korail expects the railroads to return to normal by noon today. Korail has recommended people take other means of transportation until then. The train concerned was one of the “KTX-Sancheon,” models which was developed last year using domestic technology.

Anyway Korail pulled the derailed train out of tunnel and KTX service have been put back to normal today.
