Don't know about the trains, but the torch was sure on time:
PYONGYANG, North Korea - Assured of a trip free of anti-Chinese protests, the Olympic torch made its first-ever relay run Monday in authoritarian North Korea
An attentive and peaceful crowd of thousands watched the start of the relay in Pyongyang, some waving Chinese flags, footage from broadcaster APTN showed. The event was presided over by the head of the country's rubber-stamp parliament, who often acts as a ceremonial state leader.
"Attentive and peaceful." What a nice place it must be.
