They aped the Shink, yet they went with the European equipment and tech when it came time for their own HSR?

>> No.125055  

>>125054 Korea has always been rather interesting to me regarding railroads. Mostly the locomotives have been American and European designs. While the rolling stock all European.

There is still a giant xenophobia in the culture, and they really hate Japan. Then again the Japanese built the country's first railroads. Although that was under colonial rule.

The coaches pulled by the Shinkansen cowled USA made diesel engine are Japanese made (Nissha). The majority of commuter EMU are made with Japanese licenses (Hitachi, Mitsubishi, Kawasaki, etc.), but bare the manufacturing plates of the Korean builders/assemblers (Daewoo, Rotem, Hyundai, etc.), not to upset the public. The same goes with most electronics in Korean railway equipment (Toshiba, Hitachi, etc.).

Newer rolling stock are almost 100% domestically manufactured, but are mainly retro engineered 1000 and 5000 class trains with modernised bodies and electronic equipment, which are again based on Japanese JNR 103 series and Seibu 6000s.

Sounds like how the Koreans couldn't directly import Japanese game consoles made by Nintendo and Sega, so instead Nintendo and Sega consoles were built and sold in Korea by Samsung.

And as it turned out, the TGV ended up performing rather terribly in their environment so they turned to more domestic production. That and they found the European convention of fixed seating was also horrible so backwards facing seats were discounted.

(Seems to be a thing in Australia much as Japan. Nobody likes fixed seating and neither do I)

Is the KTX-430 based off anything or is it entirely domestically engineered?

>> No.125122  

If what they say is true, it is pretty much all domestic. Which would make sense too as there really isn't anything on conventional rail out there marketed to run at 430km/h. Sure the Velaro E is marketed for 380km/h but unlike the chinese Shinkansen knockoffs, this seems to be quite different in architecture. At the same time though, despite being earmarked for a 2015 debut, I don't see it complete yet.

>> No.125124  

Any idea how well the prototype has been performing in testing?

>> No.125208  

Domestic. Hyundai Rotem. They actually built the last wave of Reseau before they changed the rolling stock altogether.

Purely aesthetic. In the end it was decided as not worth it likely due to the nightmare dealing with a dozen fluoro tubes. It would've given meaning to the name Hikari though - quite literally lighting the way.

It's mostly a thing with bridge structures. Shinkansen is CWR after all. I'm guessing since bridges back then moved more, there could be a joint. Or certain bridge structures amplify the rolling noises.

No idea, really. I know they run some pig trains between Chicago and Omaha and they run A LOT of trains through Wisconsin coming from the Canadian border. We run a decent amount down here, but it's not really a lot of over the road trains. If you went to one area near me you would see 8 scheduled trains every day plus whatever unscheduled grain, coal, and oil trains. But the latter is only like twice a month.

That 1030 was in the yard tonight. Should be on its way back north today.
