NEW YORK -- A 250-meter long train thought to belong to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is parked at a resort compound on the country's east coast, according to a North Korea monitoring group based in Washington.

The group, 38 North, released commercial satellite imagery on Saturday showing a railway station used by the Kim family at the Wonsan compound with no train as of April 15, but the presence of carriages on Tuesday and Thursday.
