    Very interesting photo- it looks almost surreal, very eerie and imposing. Thanks for posting.

    I wonder what it was used for. Looks very strange. Pretty long for a locomative, if that's what it is.

    Very cool, and possibly is a Loco. Looks like a boiler with rods and all the bells and whistles. The South Koreans really preserve their history, especially from the Korean War years. The older Koreans know how good they have it. The younger, more liberal Koreans, believe S. Korea is a puppet government of the U.S. and want us out, without realizing that the U.S. is pretty much the only thing keeping North Korea from over running S. Korea.

    It's a locomotive for sure, it was caught out early in the Korean war and left in no mans land for years before being removed to the Freedom Bridge at Imjingak. Heres a different angle shot I took 2 years ago. Apparantly it has over 1000 bullet holes through it!
