Hua Hin bound train at Hua Lamphong station

I love those decayed engine trains still in use. Beautiful.

I'd like to get a decent photo of the re-engineered BR Class 158s. I don't know where they run though. Perhaps someone here can help out.

Would be interesting to see if it ran i SE-Asia, or Thailand, even.

I have a former colleague who worked on their commissioning at Makkasan. I have one poor photo, from another web site, but it does not show the vehicle in its full glory. For me, the 158s were a breath of fresh air when they arrived on the Transpennine route. I suspect they may have been more new than improved, and they have since been supplanted on the Glasgow Queen Street - Edinburgh route

So, then, an original self made photo would be too much to ask here, perhaps... whistling.gif

I can maybe trawl back and find one on the Queen Street Waverley run, but we need to remember that the Thai vehicles had metre - gauge bogies and enhanced air conditioning....

I know I've never seen them in Thailand - I don't even know which line they run

For the BREL boys

This one is in comission now. I spotted this train 4 months ago on the Chiang Mai line. I looks like a BR.

There is a member in our forum with a big mouse-tash

Who went from Hua Lamphong Station to Chiang Mai with a rash http://www.pbase.com/win13/image/49591654/large

large.jpg

The trip took 1,006 hours without a hitch

Not been derailed nor going into a ditch

So he gave the drive a tip in cash

Phitsanulok or Phit-lok trainstation, the whistle-guy and if you where wondering the guy in sunglasses in the back is putting something on his nose, like Jimmy's clown.
