As Nooriro is an eco-friendly train, powered by electricity rather than diesel, it is expected to bring about a reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases and a positive environmental impact.
Following the opening of double-track Gyeongchun Line, KORAIL packaged an 8-car Nooriro as a Hallyu tourist train, starting a round-trip service since 25 December 2010, from Seoul station to Chuncheon station once a day on weekends and public holidays.
As a free shuttle train of Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea held from 12 May to 12 August, 2012, Nooriro received good reviews for providing visitors with convenient transport from Suncheon station to Yeosu Expo station.
When a problem occurs, Hitachi will thoroughly investigate the problem, identify the cause and present measures and solutions to deal with the problem. Through such an organized system, the efforts of Hitachi to prevent the recurrence of problems are very encouraging changes welcomed by KORAIL employees.
