0083 Train Diplomacy

May 31, 2012, 04:11 PM, Jung-gu, Seoul, South Korea

You got your A Train. You got your Chattanooga Choo Choo. You got your Hogwarts Express. And now you got your Reunification Railroad. For the first time in 56 years, trains crossed the border between North and South Korea and it is being hailed as an important step on the road to reconciliation. Five cars long, the trains traveled 27 kilometers—one going north, the other going south—carrying passengers from both countries. Whether North Korea will allow regular train service across the border remains unknown, but at least one major marketing problem has been tackled already: No riders will be blown to bits if the train should be up and running: North Korea cleared land mines in order for the tracks to be laid. #bleier #ceas #NorthKorea #SouthKorea #tsutsui
