END OF THE LINE

All About History - - WORLD WAR II -

Just 72 kilo­me­tres from Thai­land’s cap­i­tal, Bangkok, the railway’s other end was on the banks of the Mae Klong river at the town of Ban Pong. To­day, a small carved stone is the only mon­u­ment that marks the start of this once aw­ful jour­ney. From Ban Pong, you can take a train fol­low­ing the tracks of the orig­i­nal railway for 120 kilo­me­tres, which will get you al­most to Hell­fire Pass.
