Train stations in Thailand, next station Huai Saw Phat
I love traveling by train, especially in Thailand where it is like traveling in time. It is like an open-air museum. Not only the trains itself but also the train stations. They look like they have not changed since they build the first railroad lines in Thailand in 1889. I will try to make a serie of train stations under the tag TRAIN STATIONS, before modernisation will make this all history. This little train station is Huai Sa Phat along the north-east line Bangkok - Nong Kai. Many railway stations have lovely small gardens and very well taken care. At the station you will see 2 rail-tracks (see following photos) .... but about 500m south of this station is a old one-track steel bridge crossing a small river. I was able to go inside the control room and make some photos of how this was 100 years ago (and still is now).
