Seoul Station

Quote:
Seoul Station is a major railway station in Seoul, South Korea. The station is served by the Gyeongbu Line, its high-speed counterpart and the Gyeongui Line, with frequent high-speed, express, and local services to various points in South Korea.

The station is the primary terminus for the KTX and express services to Busan and local service to Dorasan. The station is also served by about a dozen trains per day on the Honam Line and its express counterpart to Gwangju and Mokpo. The station used to be the terminus for all long-distance trains on the Gyeongbu, Honam, Jeolla, and Janghang Lines, but in early 2004, the terminus for most Honam, Jeolla, and Janghang Line trains was moved to Yongsan.

Seoul Station is also served by Seoul Subway Line 1 and Line 4. source

Yongsan Station

Quote:
Yongsan Station is a major railway station in Seoul, South Korea. It is located in Yongsan Gu, and adjoins the Yongsan Electronics Market. The station is the terminus for high-speed and long-distance trains on a number of railway lines, including most trains on the Honam Line, its high-speed counterpart, and all trains on the Janghang and Jeolla Lines.

Prior to 2004, all long-distance trains serving Seoul terminated at the nearby Seoul Station, but with the opening of the Korea Train Express (KTX), Yongsan Station took over some of Seoul's services.

Yongsan Station is also served by Seoul Subway Line 1 and the Jungang Line commuter railway.

In 2004, a major cinema opened adjacent to the station. In August 2006, the whole station building was made into a large department store, called I'Park Mall.

The building now includes the railway station, subway station, the CGV cinema and several restaurants and shops, as well as housing the first building of the Yongsan Electronics Market. There is a bridge connecting I'Park Mall and the Yongsan Electronics Market. source

Gwangmyeong Station

Quote:
Gwangmyeong Station is a train station in Gwangmyeong, South Korea. It is on the national high-speed KTX railway network, 22km south of Seoul Station.

Disambiguation

Note that "Gwangmyeong Station" is the former name of Gwangmyeongsageori Station on Line 7 of the Seoul Subway and is also the name of a station on the Pyongyang underground rail network.

History

The location of Gwangmyeong Station was finalised on October 14, 1994, though construction did not begin until December 1999. The planned name of "Namseoul Station" (literally meaning South Seoul Station) was changed to "Gwangmyeong Station" on August 28, 2000 and the station building was completed on March 27, 2004. The station opened on April 1, 2004 for KTX trains and the Yongsan-Gwangmyeong Shuttle on Line 1 began operating on December 15, 2006.

Services

Gwangmyeong Station serves all KTX trains on both lines. Shuttle trains also run every 30 minutes to Yongsan, joining the Gyeongbu Line section of Line 1 at Siheung Station in Seoul. Gwangmyeong Station is not connected directly to other subway stations in the city of Gwangmyeong, namely Cheolsan and Gwangmyeongsageori, so it is necessary to change trains at Gasan Digital Complex Station in Seoul to travel there.

Building

Gwangmyeong Station is a glass structure surrounded by large car parking spaces. Standing on a plot of land measuring 264,131m˛, the interior of the 48,184m˛ building is open, with the tracks, which approach the station from both directions through cuttings, sunken below the main concourse, yet visible to passengers waiting at ground level. There are two stories above ground level and two below. The building measures 297m×148m in terms of internal available space. Originally meant to be the terminus for KTX lines, the size of the station was constructed accordingly. As the terminus changed to Seoul and Yongsan, the large difference between capacity and actual use the station and most prominently due to the size of the station, it has earned the nicknam Gwangmyeong Airport by rail enthusiasts. source
