Finno's Train Hopping Pix
#31
I guess it’s a matter of what you get used to but I’m kinda claustrophobic and have a real issue with my personal space. This would drive me (more) bonkers pretty quick and I’m not exactly a stranger to crowded public transportation!

I should add that the general orderly nature of the people getting on and off the train is remarkable. It’s Japan, of course!

Good point. I do recall a video Posted here a while ago where the train was so packed that they had Platform Guards that would actually push people in in order for the doors to close and it looked like those people didn't mind.

Well I made it to Korea and of course I couldn't resist jumping on a train from the airport.

I'm posting this from Korea on my phone so this is a test...

First pic on the ARex (airport express) second on the standard metro train.

Very clean looking coaches Finno. Wonder if those blue head towels on the backs of the seats are swapped out for clean ones on a regular basis? Was the two different coaches on the same train as one has airline type seats and the other more of an urban commuter look?

Two different trains. The express took me to Seoul station and then I switched to a regular train on line 1 to get me to my hotel.

The express was quite comfortable and while not 'high speed' as such still gets along at a good speed.

Did you see any Shinkasens?
Making Customs, Filming Videos and looking for the purest engines. That's how I roll here on Blue Plastic Tracks.

No Shinkansens but I did manage to see the KTX in real life. I didn't have time to actually ride the KTX but I was surprised I could actually go down on the platform and managed to film one when it arrived and departed form Cheongnyangni station.

So here it is:

Thanks Finno, very cool that you were able to catch that.

The KTX is a sweet Bullet but your video begs the question already brought up at BPT's...Why did Plarail make the middle coach the way they did when the real train has nothing like that?
