At first I thought they where cleaning up the tracks. Later I discovered they are actually waiting and playing with the water to try to overcome the boredom. Waiting to manually fill up the trains' water reserves. Like old buses in Thailand i think the engine needs extra water to cool down due to the leaking if the old engine. However I have seen them watering carriages mainly so I guess this water will be used for train toilets and sinks as well.

Thanks for the input Bookman.thumbsup.gif

2nd Class coach to Hua Hin (I think 2nd class; better than the 40 bht 3rd-class only on the way back)

I found the trains in Thailand a pretty good option, with the exception of the 3rd-class only 40 baht special on a public holiday weekend. I'd have been home hours earlier, but for a little confusion on my part between Thonburi and Chonburi. If they'd said Bangkok Noi, I'd have known what they meant...

Thanks, streetcowboy, great pics. Hua Hin station appears very small. Did you end up in Thonburi when you shoul have been in chonburi?

I think that's just the station temple. the main building is behind me, but it's not so photogenic.

I couldn't get a seat back to Bangkok, and let a couple of trains to Thonburi go, thinking it was Chonburi. In the end, after waiting about four or five hours, got on the late-running 40 baht 3rd class only train, which was further delayed at every passing loop to let the trains out of Bangkok pass; and finally bailed out at Bang Sui to get the MRT back to Sukhumvit, and subsequently a taxi home.
