Railway Station Operated by Women

Pyongyang, March 8 (KCNA) — The women of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea are playing a great part in the development of the national economy and improvement of the people’s livelihood.

It is well illustrated by the fact that Sophyongyang Railway Station under the Pyongyang Railway Bureau is operated by women.

All the positions of the station from the director of the station to guides have been taken by women for more than 40 years.

They give primary attention to provide better cultural refinement and service to the thousands of travelers going in and out a day. All the facilities and rooms of the station from the central hall to the waiting room, ticket office, library and cloak-room are associated with beautiful and delicate workmanship of the women.
Their colorful art performances, explanation on railway law and regulations and kind service deeply move the passengers.

Kim Sin Ok, director of the station, who has worked in the railway station for 30-odd years, told KCNA that all the woman employees are full of pride of operating a railway station of the country by themselves, though it is difficult for them.
