Last weekend I hopped a train to Uiwang City and visited the Railroad Museum, close to Seoul. The museum,5 to 10 minutes away on foot from Uiwang Subway Station, features various materials and items like artifacts and vehicles from the over 100 years of railroad history in Korea. There were many different types of train cars and engines on display outside. Inside they had model trains displayed, all sorts of train parts and information on the history of trains in our country. It was not a huge place, but I enjoyed it with interest. The highlight was a showing of the model train display where visitors were able to watch them run on the model tracks.
I sketched some interesting scenes in and outside the museum with fantastic atmosphere.
