So then the 150km/h EMU isn't going to replace the Saemaeul trains, but another train will come along to in the next couple years. Got it; thanks ruready!

Govt. plans to break up Korail

Quote:
SEOUL, June 14 (Yonhap) -- The government revealed its long-awaited plans Friday to improve the country's railroad services that will lead to a de facto breakup of the state-run Korea Railroad (KORAIL) into three separate companies by 2017.

According to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, KORAIL will first set up a new subsidiary before the end of this year that will handle the operation of a new KTX express train service set to be launched in 2015.

It will then set up a new subsidiary next year to handle the operation of its cargo trains.

KORAIL itself will act as a holding company after it establishes two separate subsidiaries in 2015 and 2017 to handle train repair and maintenance services, the ministry said.

I know it's not the issue, but he's just saying "Great" or "I like this".

I didn't know that Korail had any problems with service. I'd be willing to bet that this is really being done to deal with the organization's debt problems. I'd also imagine that this must be especially gratifying for those within Korail involved with the failed Yongsan development.

Hyundai Rotem files for IPO to raise up to $575 million

Quote:
(Reuters) - South Korean train maker Hyundai Rotem said it plans to raise up to 622.4 billion won ($575 million) in an initial public offering in what would be the country's biggest share sale so far this year.

Hyundai Rotem, founded in 1999, controls over 90 percent of the domestic train market, while its global share stands at a meager 2 percent to 3 percent. The maker of high-speed trains also engages in plant construction.

I suppose the new train starts from Seoul to other places. Busan needs best access with double track electrified.

What about the new line direct from Busan to Ulsan? (it's extended the double track electrified to Daegu via Gyeongju?)

And a direct link from Hopo ? to Jinju via Gimhae?

The Korean electrification system is very similar to Line Roca in Buenos Aires

We then moved north to Yeongju to ride "V train" and continued north to Jeongdongjin to stay in the Suncruise ship hotel which has great views of the trains!
