Tham Krasee railway

A photo series from the Tham Krasee railway. This section which cost a great many lives when the track was built in 1942-1945 as it climbs up along vertical cliffs over a stretch of 200 metres. The track is built of wood, and in 2022 they have started to renovate the track, unfortunately with concrete.

You can get to Tham Krasee by rail, river and road. If you follow road 3343 and drive up to the railway station, you will come to this market. The market is visited by many, both tourists and Thais. There is a large selection of clothes.

There are 4-5 trains daily, and when the train arrives, it is at a pace where you can follow on foot. Then it's on to the cameras, both those on the train and those standing meter from the train.

A cave without a Buddha figure is not a real cave here in Thailand. At the entrance, incense sticks were burned in grand style, but of course it was also Father's Day, i.e. a day off

Here I am at the end of the railway where the iconic track snakes its way up the mountainside.
