#breaking Fresh imagery from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s compound continues to show train presence, @38NorthNK says. Kim’s train does not prove or disprove anything about his health, but does add credibility to reports Kim is at his luxury beachfront compound in Wonsan.

According to @38NorthNK, the station where the train has been parked is "reserved for use by the Kim family." Satellite images indicated the train, not present in the area on April 15, arrived sometime before April 21 and continued to be at the location on April 23.

It was highly unusual for North Korea not to publish images of Kim overseeing the recent missile launch from Wonsan on April 14. It was also highly unusual that Kim did not appear at Day of the Sun events in Pyongyang on April 15, the celebration of his grandfather’s birthday.
