Dorasan Station

For a year between 2007 and 2008, trains ran daily from this platform at Dorasan Station across the Korean DMZ to the Kaesong Industrial Region in North Korea.  These factories are a curious arrangement where South Korean companies can employ North Koreans at a fraction of even Chinese labor costs.

The train doesn't run these days, so raw goods in and finished products out are sent by road convoy, on an adjacent highway that's opened solely for these deliveries.
