The Kumgangsan Chongnyon Line is an electrified standard-gauge trunk line of the North Korean State Railway running from Pyongyang to Kaesong.[1]

The line was formerly part of the Tonghae Pukpu line that ran from Anbyon to Yangyang (nowadays in South Korea). The section between Mount Kumgang and Jejil was out of service from the partition of Korea until 2007, when it was reopened for passenger trains from the south to the Mount Kumgang Tourist Region; it was closed again after the shooting of a South Korean tourist by a KPA soldier.

The Line[edit]

A yellow background in the "Distance" box indicates that section of the line is not electrified.
