Main information[edit] The station is the start of the P'yŏngbu and P'yŏngŭi lines, which were adjusted from the Kyŏngbu and Kyŏngŭi lines used before the division of Korea to accommodate the shift of the capital from Seoul to P'yŏngyang. The P'yŏngŭi Line runs from P'yŏngyang to Sinŭiju, while the P'yǒngbu Line theoretically runs through Seoul

and ends at Busan; in practice, however, the line ends at Kaesǒng. It is also served by the P'yǒngnam Line, which runs from P'yŏngyang to Namp'o, as well as the P'yŏngdŏk Line running from P'yŏngyang to Kujang. Connections[edit]

station 1920s

The original station was constructed in the 1920s. During the Korean War, the original structure was destroyed and later on rebuilt in 1958[2] in the style of socialist architecture. The station presently has three floors above ground level as well as a basement.[3] The ground level houses a ticket desk exclusively for government employees. At the first floor there is a waiting room, toilets, a ticket desk and access to the trains. At the second floor there are offices for the staff and at the third the office of the station master. There are five platforms, with number 1 being the most spacious. Speaker system[edit] Twice daily, a rendition of "Where Are You, Dear General?" is blasted over a speaker system at the station. This is used as an alarm for the entirety of Pyongyang. References[edit]
