Train stations in Thailand, next station Ban Pin

Train Stations in Thailand

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. This little train station is "Ban Pin". This station was opened in 1914. To me it looks like a German design building. For more information see Wiki Ban_Pin_Railway_Station Or have a look at the (German) video at Ban Pin BahnhofIt is a very nice train station and very good taken care. I was invited into the "Signalling Cabin Room". Everything looked like brand new, but is reality probably from 1914! I do hope that modernisation will bypass this lovely little station and that it will be saved as kind of "open-air museum".
