Commuter rail[edit]

Is it true that if you take the commuter rail version of this line then you're unable to transfer at Seoul Station to lines 1 & 4??68.197.102.240 (talk) 05:34, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I've removed Shultz's claim, "In October 2004, the northern connection from the DMZ to Kaesong was finally completed." My Google search turned up nothing about this, and his edit summary of "I think I read in at least a few places that a North-South connection was finally made that time." didn't give me much confidence. If anyone can substantiate this claim, great, but please provide a source that can be verified. FreplySpang (talk) 21:21, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

I did a quick search and found this: [1] (Brooke, James. "Mixed Messages on U.S. Role as Two Koreas Begin Joint Projects." New York Times, Late Ed. 8 Oct 2004, A11:1.), which talks of the unveiling of a South Korea to Kaesong rail route, and [2] (Brooke, James. "Commerce Sends South Korea Across DMZ." New York Times, Late Ed. 31 Oct 2005, A11:1.) which says that test trains were to begin running from S. Korea to Kaesong during the fall of '05 (no word on if they actually did). I have not, however, seen anything yet about routes from the rest of North Korea's half of the Gyeongui line to Kaesong, and the name "Gyeongui" never even comes up in the articles I cited. In case you need further info, I have access to the full text of both articles. -- Calcwatch 01:58, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
This English-language Joongang Ilbo editorial from last month states that the promised test-run never took place: [3]... that certainly corresponds with my perceptions. However, it seems that the Seoul-Gaeseong stretch has been completed, and only awaits formal opening, which theoretically could come at any time. That is the claim made by Chung Dong-young in a recent Korean-language interview with NK Chosun. [4]-- Visviva 02:40, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
