(From Panoramio) A random wiki search just so happens to generate a railway station in Daegu. Dongchon Station (not to be confused with the subway station of the same name) is in East Daegu, not far from the old Banyawol Station that I visited and photographed while walking out and about, when I lived and worked in Gaksan, a few years back. Thanks to a great Daegu blogger (just wish he blogged more), it's revealed that the Japanese built Banyawol and Dongchon rail stations back in 1917, on the railway that they just completed a year earlier. The stations had since been closed back in 2005. Korea's main site pegs the origin at 1938, however. Either way, the Japanese were there during the time. Hankyoreh has a good article mentioning how Korea is preserving its historical 'ganiyeok' around the country.
