In one of the forum threads we have discussed our favorite form of transportation. For many of us it is riding the rails.
Please post photos of trains that you have seen on travel blog-- whether they are ones you have traveled on or ones that others have photographed. Let's see our collections of trains, rails and other train parts!

Some Camels Travel..........And Some Camels Race
This one is a tourist train and only goes a few miles down the track and turns around. The host was entertaining and provided a bit of local history and a few jokes. It was a fun hour.
The train from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi was a 3rd class train. It was advertised as "air-conditioned" We could not argue with them as they opened the windows and had about 12 tiny 6" diameter fans hanging from the ceiling. It was comical but we had a great time sitting with locals and chickens.
