The Hall of Railway Heritage in Chatuchak Park in Bangkok is due to open today for the last time. Tuesday 23rd October 2012 is Chulalongkorn Day and as King Rama V is regarded as the Father of the Thai Railway, events will be held at the museum. The Hall of Railway Heritage has been a favourite destination for rail enthusiasts since it first opened 23 years ago. However, during recent years the number of visitors has dropped and when I was there the other month the shutters were down. The free museum is run by a group of volunteers. From what I have heard, the State Railway of Thailand are building a new museum to house these unique and irreplaceable artefacts from Thailand’s history. As soon as I find out more information I will let you know.
