Photos of the Incheon Maglev Project: Here are some photos I took back at the beginning of 2013 when testing on the line was already well underway.

Hey, great pictures. I visited the Incheon International Airport last week and I took some pictures. It looks like nothing has changed since 2013!

Visited and tried out the train today! I went in the daytime and there were many visitors, mainly ajusshi come to admire the train. Signage throughout the metro station and the airport are all up. The staff were also knowledgeable in providing direction.

Windows automatically frost over for privacy at key points during the ride and the change is instant. This was my first time on a maglev and looking at the flat track made me nervous!

But it was fun to bring a friend along and try this quiet train with other people equally interested in the new technology. (Sorry—some of the photos came out sideways in this post.)

Hi Philip, thanks so much for taking the time to share these. However we can't seem to view the images? Would really love to see them though!
