HistoryEdit

Anyang Station opened as a stop-off on the Gyeongbu Line, which it remains today, on January 1, 1905. On August 15, 1974, services on the Seoul Subway began stopping at Anyang. The current station building was completed in December 2001, and three years later, on January 20, 2005, express subway services from Seoul to Suwon began calling at Anyang.

ServicesEdit

The first train of the day weekdays (not including national holidays) is at 5.31 a.m. northbound and 5.17 a.m. southbound, while the last is at 12.12 a.m. northbound and 12.02 a.m. southbound. Northbound trains have various destinations. Some terminate at Guro, some at Dongmyo, others at Cheongnyangni, while some continue as far as Kwangwoon University. None, however, continue beyond Kwangwoon University, so if travel beyond is required, it is necessary to change trains. Some southbound trains terminate at Byeongjeom, while the remainder continue to Cheonan.
