You misspelled Yeosu in *there*'s romanisation... Shouldn't it be Iesu? Juan Martin Velez Linares 23:05, 11 August 2015 (CDT)

Also, a lot of place names in *here*'s South Korea have romanised names which don't completely follow the rules for consonants outlined by *there*'s romanisation (Busan should be Pusan by the Johnson romanisation, since it apparently follows the McClure rules for the unaspirated/voiced consonants).

I'll look at it. BoArthur 11:07, 18 August 2015 (PDT)

Since Corea is integrated with Japan in IB, might I have the Corean high speed rail program begin at around the same time as the Shinkansen program did *here*? Or perhaps a bit later due to postwar reconstruction?Juan Martin Velez Linares 11:46, 15 August 2015 (CDT)

I had it start later, as *here* by expediency of QAA, however, it's also due to the fact that there wasn't really motivation to create or unify with Japan, rail-wise, prior - the Japan-Corea Tunnel completed in 1999. Prior to that, short-haul zeppelin rides were more preferred - it didn't make sense for dignitaries to go overland from Kieñseñ to Busan, only to take a ferry across to Honxu, and that was the main driving force. They wanted a more reliable route, and routing rules remain in place such that direct travel is both possible and expected...certain trains do the Kieñseñ-Quiòto route above standard speeds and non-stop at {classified}.

Ah. So basically the Corea and Japan rail networks operated separately until recently? Juan Martin Velez Linares 12:42, 15 August 2015 (CDT)
Wait, construction of the Japan-Corea tunnel started in 1964 (about the same date that the Shinkansen started running *here*). So why wouldn't there be any interest in linking Japan and Corea together rail-wise if the tunnel was started so early? Methinks that Corean high-speed rail should have started at least somewhat earlier? Juan Martin Velez Linares 12:50, 15 August 2015 (CDT)
