Si Koraphum also has a Railway Station...Tim and I are both interested in railways, so we went to see the station while Na and Aay went off in search of the Village's famous sticky candy.
We found that it was in excellent condition, and was spotlessly clean.
Thailand's National Track Gauge is 1 metre. This track runs between Bangkok and Ubon Ratchathani...a distance of approximately 600km. I have travelled on it, aboard an overnight sleeper train, from Bangkok to Surin which is about 400km and takes 10 hours...this is not a high-speed service!
In both images, Tim can be seen in conversation with the Assistant Station Master...that gentleman was very friendly and was keen to tell us about the railway and the Khmer ruin.
