Most of the domestic railways were laid for Japanese colonial era resource exploitation, but the Gyeongchun Line was the first railway built with Korean capital for balanced national development. After the introduction of the diesel locomotive, it served as a service train, and in the 1970s and 1980s it was used to go on MTs or date. In 2010, the double-track subway of the Gyeongchun Line was opened and stopped operating.This history is preserved through rusty railroad tracks, ties, and breakers at crossings on the Gyeongchun Line forest trail.
