Dorasan Station

Missing, Lost, or Dead

This was part of a large sign with names of donors who helped build Dorasan Station, the last stop before entering North Korea by train. The rail line was used at one point for a joint economic venture between North and South. In 2008, The North Koreans shut the program down and closed the border after only one year of use. The South Koreans seem really saddened by the divide. One sign at the station reads: “Not the last station from the South, But the first station toward the North.”
