RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN North and South Korea will conduct a joint survey of North Korean railway lines to eventually link the railway systems of the two countries.

According to the Hankyoreh, the survey began on November 30 and will take approximately 18 days and cover over 1,200 kilometers.

A South Korean train consisting of a locomotive and six passenger cars will be used in the survey.

A North Korean train with three additional North Korean passenger cars would also be linked with the South Korean train.

This marks the first time a South Korean train would be travelling over a majority of North Korea's railway lines since the two Koreas were divided.

Officials will survey the Seoul-Sinuiju line which goes up to the Chinese border, and the East Sea line which goes as far as Russia's border.

NPR reports that the government plans to have railways running along the east and west coast of the Korean Peninsula, with a line linking them in the middle.

The railway lines could also potentially connect to the rest of Asia and Europe.
