Wong Wan Yai Railway Station, Thonburi

Wong Wan Yai Railway Station, Thonburi

I made it to Wong Wan Yai raIlway station on the holiday Wednesday. It’s just as other’s have described – a single track station with a market right up to the tracks.

Disappointingly the single train that shuttles to and fro to Malachai is a standard SRT Kinki diesel railcar from the 1980s. I was hoping for something more interesting and unique.

I did not have time to take the train. That was fortunate because as soon as the 14:25 departure left the station I started to pour wih rain and the area flooded in minutes. I bet the train was held up.

I’d love to take the trip some time. The mornings are invariably dry at this time of the year (Famous last words.)

I have “the best” photos at Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ianfuller/) and the “rest” at Picasa Web (http://picasaweb.google.com/the.bangkok.photographer/20090708#)
