RAILROAD DAY IN KOREA PART2

I continued the self-guided tour at the Railroad Museum. These are the presidential train (left) and the train for president's bodyguards (right). The left one was built by Nippon Sharyo, a Japanese builder of Shinkansen trains, under the Park Chung-hee administration. The right one was built by Daewoo under the Chun Doo-hwan administration. Very sleek.
鉄道博物館の見学を続ける。こちらは大統領専用列車(左)と大統領警護員用列車(右)。左は日本の新幹線のメーカーである日本車両製で、朴正煕政権時に作られた。右は全斗煥政権時に導入されたデウ製。なかなかかっこいい。


The presidential coach and its interior. This car was originally used for express trains operated by Japanese-owned railways in the Korean Peninsula and Manchuria.
大統領専用客車と、そのインテリア。この客車はもともと、日本統治時代の朝鮮半島と満州の鉄道が運行する急行列車用に作られたもの。

A passenger car for Tongil trains.
トンイル号用客車。

The Class 9211 diesel train for Mugunghwa trains. It reminds me of the original Keisei AE series train for Skyliner limited express services.
ムグンファ号で使われた9211系気動車。京成の初代スカイライナーAE系を思い出させる。
