New life for the Gyeongui line
Back then, train travel was still special. People who were in college in those days still have fond memories of taking the train for romantic getaways.
The students were all headed to Anygol village, where traditional cafes offered cool drinks, live music and a chance to socialize away from the watchful eyes of teachers and parents.
The Gyeongui Line reopened as part of the subway system on July 1 after a period of reconstruction. It is now shuttling a new generation to the old nostalgic places. The KAU Aerospace Museum and the Hwang Hui Monument are also now more accessible.
The train runs four times an hour between Digital Media City Station in Mapo District, western Seoul, and Munsan Station in Paju, northern Gyeonggi.
Gone are the bumps of yesteryear. The train now provides a smooth, comfortable ride, so sit back, relax and enjoy your trip to places old and new.
To get there take the Gyeonggui Line to Pungsan Station. Trains depart Seoul Railroad Station once every hour at 50 minutes past the hour. Trains depart Digital Media City Station every 15 minutes.
