Books about Korean railroad


Recommended Posts

As requested by one user, I've prepared list of best books related to Korean railway.

As far as I know, for example http://www.interpark.com/ and https://www.gmarket.co.kr/ offer international shipping if somebody will be interested in buying.

You can just copy the title of the book to online bookstore search box.

I'll try to find one of those, maybe the "120 years history" before, this time I haven't friend that read korean, I hope to find al lot of photos and maybe technical drawings (blueprints) like is common on japanese magazines, "fortunately" some trains are imported version of foreign company (Alstom, Siemens, GE etc...) and, maybe I misunderstood, some cars are similar to japanese rolling stock...  but high speed is my first target 😊
