The Gyeongchun Line

The Gyeongchun Line
is a railway line connecting Seoul to Chuncheon in South Korea. The line is operated by Korail. The name of the line came from Gyeongseong (meaning Seoul) and Chuncheon. The line was reconstructed in a new alignment in its entirety in the 2000s. A frequent passenger service operates between Sangbong Station on the Jungang Line in eastern Seoul and Chuncheon Station as part of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway system since December 21, 2010.
