As has probably been said elsewhere, could make for some interesting passenger information announcements (but probably not their strong point!).

Here is a BBC Video - https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-58588272

Watch out for my favourite bit just before the launch where the train staff in hazmat suits show their faith in the system by getting the heck out of there as fast as their legs will carry them.

The good news though is that the retro brake van-style system should have plenty of room for bikes and surfboards.

So no chance of widespread OHL on North Korean Railways then?  ;D

They decided to go one better than the Japanese bullet train.

No need.

They are powered solely by the people's faith in The Dear Leader.
