This sign was next to a table of petitions for an express train between Seoul and Sokcho.
I'm too sick right now to comment or even think deeply about the subject, but here goes.
In my six years in the area, I've seen evidence of the old rail line slowly disappear. The old line seemed to go from Gangneung (where I guess it turned inland) into North Korea. There are still many supports for bridges, although the bridges themselves are gone.
If or when the border opens up, I can easily imagine the value of a rail line here and to points north, but right now, not so much.
We already know that nobody wants to fly here (search "airport" on this blog, if you're interested - I'm saving my energy for vomiting).
It would be nice get to and fro in comfort, and especially to have a bathroom available, but it would be strange to have a rail car all to myself, aside from New Year's eve or the like, I guess.
Oh, the photo was taken with my new Sony DSC T-77. I handy little camera that I bought a few days ago. Thanks for suggestions on what to buy - I am not sure if I followed any or them.
