Seoul Sagas: December 9, 2012 part two

Recommended Posts

Continued from part one. This part was mainly about riding a now-retired trainset.

 

This particular car was connected into the mentioned trainset, and is older than some of the cars... (you can tell the age by the windows; if they are squared, they used the older technology) built around 1979-1985

And a newer car in the train (with more rounder windows), built around 1988:

This retiring train was surprisingly retrofitted with newer-generation train doors in 2006-2007... and also got a new map in a matter of weeks before retirement:

And some Christmas preparation, as Christmas was approaching at the time of this thread:

That's it for now, and stay tuned for more! If you have questions about how to number a Korean subway train (like the retired train set), feel free to PM me and I will respond as soon as possible!

I think so, but one of the people on the train simply makes announcements and controls the doors.
