Yangon Circle Train #4

We are off!

 

Within 500 metres we pass through a station, where no-one embarks nor disembarks but there is plenty of refuse for locals to sift through.

 

And, in another 500 metres, into a bigger station which gives strong indications of its colonial heritage...

J'aime beaucoup cette maison de style coloniale, elles avaient de l'allure.
Ray: L'édifice colonial anglais n'a pas le charme de Colonial français, Martine ... mais ils sont très beau et il est bon qu'ils existent encore.
I love those old sturdy brick buildings...
Ray: Yes...strong buildings, and symbolic of what used to be the strength of the British Empire, Larry.

Love the leading lines in #1.
Ray: Yes, me too, Bonnie...one reason why I like visiting railways.

The track work looks a little worse for wear since the Brits built it. Mind you, it looks like they left their rubbish behind.
Ray: The track still functions fine at about 20kph, Alan. smile

This is all very enjoyable, a land that health & safety forgot
Ray: Ha Ha

More on that later in the series, Chris.

Absolutely fascinating Ray, I'm enjoying this journey.
Ray: I am delighted to have you along, Chad.
Why would people throw their garbage out like that?
Ray: I am guessing the train carriages are cleaned here, and the garbage is travellers' trash that has been swept onto the rails...locals then scratch through the stuff to see if valuables have been lost.
This is great Ray.

We have gone from Iimperialists to insular islanders in a couple of generations.
Ray: Call it "progress", Bill! smile
I guess with 39 stations there isn't much in the way of distance between each one.
Ray: The train is barely rolling before it is slowing down again, Brian.
I hope there is a cold beer at the end of the line Ray.
Ray: So do I, Michael...I have put in the request, and palmed a quid to lubricate the idea...
The two make quite a contrast!
Ray: I thought so, too, Tom.

What a great shot, Ray. The top one
Ray: Thank you, Richard...that is my choice also.
the rails look like they would not support high speed travel, Ray.
