Korean Trains

The South Koreans and the North Koreans have a train system. The train depot shown above is in South Korea near the DMZ zone. Obviously the South Korea train does not go to North Korea but they are hopeful that the Countries can be reuinted one day and that is why this South Korean Train Station shows a departure for Pyongyang, North Korea. One day this may be where South Koreans can get onboard and visit their family in North Korea, but for now it is off limits.

 The Tomb of King. Tongmyong is where the ancient ruler of Tongmyong was buried. The original ruins were removed and the area was rebuilt with new buildings. There are numerous rulers and people of influence buried in this area but the  King Tongmyong is the most famous ruler. The king is the founder of the Koguryo Region of Korea --located about 20 miles south of Pyongyang.
