I'm guessing that loco is for freight usage, right? I think Korea is aiming for more electrification of passenger services.

I assume its the GE PowerHaul series, for both freight and passenger use

No, I think the coupler fairing was removed so the trainset could be shunted.

Up

Donghae-Nambu Line upgrades [Bujeon - Gijang sector]
Impressions of the visit to check the status of improvement works in Donghae-Nambu line.


http://frdb2.wo.to/511.htm

The first phase, to be completed in 2015, between Bujeon and Ilgwang with new alignment, duplication and electrification. By-pass over Haeundae area [between Udong and Songcheong] and some new stations to allow a new commuter service in Busan and Ulsan.

The second phase, to be completed in 2017 between Ilgwang and Ulsan [Taehwagang] I will check in other moment.

GIJANG

New layout in this station with two main tracks (central) for commuter trains and two side tracks for Mugunghwa or long distance trains.

Platforms partially built. Station building waiting. I suppose that they construct a concourse on a second floor with access on West and East side.




Ulsan bound platform


Busan bound platform (right) and Ulsan bound (left). In the Busan bound platform they will end with a hight floor platform on main tracks for commuter services.


Ulsan end.


Busan end.


Looking to Ulsan. I think the right track will connect close to the bridge with the main track.


I think this is the new space for the station building east access close to the Road 14.




Current station building.




End of part one

SONGCHEONG

The new Songcheong in a new location (but not really far away from the original) due the new path of the track on Haeundae by-pass.

In the future only commuter trains will stop at this station with two main tracks, two side and two islands of platforms. BTW it looks that Korail install here a new huge depot for trains.






Accustomed to as seen in Japan, I don't like the soundproof panels, I prefer a clear view of the trains.


Parking and taxi pole.




Space for ticket vending machines on right side?


Platform 1-2 still closed until 2015.






Platform 3-4, waiting room.






Busan bound.


Works next to the station.






Low-floor platform provisional for Mugunghwa trains.


Looking to Busan.










Looking to Ulsan.


And during the time that I spent in this station I recorded a short video with construction trains movement.






End of part two.

HAEUNDAE


Not too much time here but you can see pictures from the inauguration day on December 2013.

The track layout is exactly same as Gijang.






There is a intermediate floor between ground level and platforms ONLY for commuter trains access. They install here the faregates? BTW the access from concourse to the Mugunghwa platforms is on the sides of the picture.

I hope that Busan Subway extend the Line 2 to this point or at least they improve the bus service




End of part three.

New station in the area of BIFF, Centum City and Busan Museum of Art. BTW they could rename same as subway

Two main tracks and two side platforms with access in each end.




Ulsan end.




Busan end.




From mountain side, Busan end.




End of part four.

DONGNAE and BUJEON

Theres five new station between Udong and Bujeon but I have no time for all so... next day.


From the train, the current situation was not bad between Udong and Anrak but terrible (IMO) between Dongnae and Bujeon.

Here Dongnae:




Looking to Busan.


New Dongnae station place.





BUJEON


Looking to Ulsan. The new track comes from something between the current single track and the soundproof panel on right.




Commuter platform in Bujeon. Hoy to connect to the main building. The construct a new building?








In other moment: From Gijang to Ulsan and the new stations in Busan.

Thanks

Is the ITX going to replace the regular slow trains around the country, and serve places like Mokpo like in the test pictures? I thought, initially, the ITX was one specific route.

It seems likely ITX will become a sub-brand of trains and services below KTX, although as there are only two trains/services in that brand right now (Saemaul and Gyeongchun), it's kinda hard to tell.

Hi all can anyone say me on which line I can find the 8000 Locos?

Yesterday I were at the Line from Tabaek to Dogye. As I saw there was a new line constructed through a tunnel. But I also saw works at the old line. What are the plans with this old line?

ITX-Saemaul will replace the current Saemaul trains gradually(except for the non-electified lines). According to related news ITX-Saemaul replace all the Saemaul trains on Gyeongbu, Honam and Jeolla Line till this July.

I can't say it exactly but I think what you saw is train-theme resort being constructed on the abolished switchback line after the construction of Solan tunnel. The train-theme resort will include switchback line, railbike, incline railway etc.

Train collision in eastern S. Korea

At this moment it looks like signal failure on a single track line.

Quote:
Two passenger trains collided head-on in eastern South Korea on Tuesday, killing one passenger and injuring dozens, officials said.

Authorities are investigating what caused the crash, which occurred at about 6 p.m. in eastern Gangwon province, said Nam Young-woo, an official at the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.

Another news report from Japan's ANN. The graphic shows that the two trains were supposed to pass each other on a loop siding, however, the "O train" inexplicably did not, taking the loop line and colliding with the stopped mugungwha train. The driver of the O train told police he wasn't paying attention to the signals.
