    Chiang Mai > Bangkok rail disruption

    Look at the power pole on LH side to appreciate the depth of the wash-out!
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    Wow. Incredible that the track is still in one piece.

    The soil looks more like sand.

    causing a 50m-wide 50m-deep sinkhole underneath railway at 4am
    Seems like a major catastrophe may have been avoided as the train from BKK comes through there around 6am!
