Russia to test railway to N. Korea next month: report
SEOUL, Sept. 14 (Yonhap) -- Russia plans to test a railway running across its border with North Korea next month, three years after it started renovating the tracks, a British news report said this week.

Russian Railways, the state-controlled rail monopoly, said it plans to run a "demonstration" train between Khasan, the Russian town bordering North Korea, and the North's northeastern port city of Rajin, according to, a Britain-based rail news website.
