Lingering Memory of a Trolley Bus

A trolley bus Chollima-70 manufactured in the early 1970s gave great delight to the Korean people.

On April 8, 1972, President Kim Il Sung got on Trolley bus No. 819 and sat on a seat to learn about if there was any inconvenience for the users, and took relevant measures.

The trolley bus has been running from Pyongyang Railway Station to West Pyongyang Railway Station for about 50 years. Its driver was replaced several times, but the vehicle has carried millions of passengers without any accident, running the distance equivalent to making the rounds of the earth 50 times.

There are many modern transport vehicles in the city, but, still today, the Pyongyang citizens like commuting by this trolley bus.
