The P'yŏngra Line is an electrified standard-gauge trunk line of the Korean State Railway in North Korea, running from P'yŏngyang to Rajin, where it connects with the Hambuk Line.[1] It is North Korea's main northeast-southwest rail line.

History

P'yŏngwon Line

Hamgyŏng Line

The 12.4 km (7.7 mi) section from Kowŏn to Kŭmya was originally opened by the Chosen Government Railway (Sentetsu) on 21 July 1916 as part of its Hamgyŏng Line.

Ch'ŏngra Line

The Ch'ŏngra Line was the name of a line planned by Sentetsu to run from Ch'ŏngjin to Rajin. On 1 February 1945 the Ch'ongjin−Ch'ongam section was opened,[2] however due to the defeat of Japan in the Pacific War, Sentetsu was unable to complete the remainder of the line. After the end of the Korean War, construction of the line was resumed with the support of People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union, being completed on 10 June 1965.

Later, the P'yŏngwon Line, the Ch'ŏngra Line, and the Kowŏn−Ch'ŏngjin section of the Hamgyŏng Line were merged to create the P'yŏngra Line. With the construction of a new section between Kalli and Paesanjŏm the Ryongsŏng Line was separated from the former P'yŏngwon Line; in 1993 construction of the bypass between Puraesan and Kowŏn was completed.[3]
