KanchanaBuri

Location: KanchanaBuri, Thailand

Site of the Bridge over the River Kwae, the Death Railway and the War Cemetery - all from the days of Japan's occupation of Thailand during WWII

The confluence of the small and large tributaries of the River Kwae.

War Cemetery for British, Dutch and Australian POW's who died during the construction of the Death Railway - a supply rail link between Thailand and Burma

The real Bridge over the River Kwae - the middle two (squared) sections are the replacements for the sections blown up by the Allied forces.

The train arrives from Bangkok ......

English - for the important words???

If the train is not crossing, the bridge is open to pedestrian traffic. If it is coming, anyone on the tracks must squeeze into the small cut-outs shown on the right of the bridge.

Corn fields in what was once jungle.

Along the Mae Nam Kwae Noi (Small River Kwae tributary)... en route to Myanmar......

A village on the other side of the River Kwae, along the rail line.

Some of the mountains as we near the Myanmar border

Next to last station on the Bangkok to Nam-Tok run.

The train prepares to cross the viaduct, made of wooden timbers by the multinational troops from the POW camps.
