The Suin Line is a former narrow-gauge railway line in South Korea. The line connected Suwon on the Gyeongbu Line to Incheon on the Gyeongin Line. The line of old was abandoned in 1995.

The line is currently being rebuilt in standard gauge as well as double-track; it will link the Bundang Line, currently being extended to Suwon, to Incheon via Ansan and Siheung.

Rolling stock

For the Suin line, Korean National Railroad built narrow gauge steam locomotive, KNR160 diesel car (also known as Niigata/Kawasaki Diesel Car) and KNR18000 passenger car. One KNR160 (later renamed as KNR9160) and two KNR18000 are preserved at Railroad Museum in Uiwang, Gyeonggi-do.

Korail will soon introduce new EMU for the Suin line.
