Line 2 signage

Unlike all of the other subway lines, Line 2 has kept these mechanical indicators from the 1970s or 1980s.  In most of the subway stations, the signage tells you where the train is, that is if it is at least two stations away. Some stations, though, feature signage which tells you exactly where the train is.  On the Line 2, however, there is no such provision.  These old signs only light up if the train’s approach is imminent.  Also, sometimes the signs flip to reveal other destinations, as not all Line 2 trains complete the full loop.  Ironically enough, Line 2 often sports the nicest and newest trains, given that Seoul Metro decided to spend lots of money on such things not long ago.  Some of them even have the new train smell.
