Dorasan Station

Dorasan Sation is at the northern end of South Korea and is only about 700 meters away from the southernmost part of the Demilitairized Zone (DMZ). When the rail line is eventually opened for passenger trains, Dorasan Station will be a gateway to not only North Korea, but China, Siberia and Europe.

The station was made famous on 20 February 2002 when President George W. Bush and President Kim Dae Jung of South Korea visited the station and signed railway ties.

The photo above shows George W's autograph on one of the ties and a message which reads: "May this railroad unite Korean families".
