Historic Hanoi Station
Station from the street side.

PRESENT DAY HANOI STATION
(Apparently the centre section of the station was destroyed by American bombing (?) during the war
and was replaced by the far more mundane centre section that you see
today. Pity. It would have been nice to see the original restored.)
This website is an attempt to present a collection of information and images of trains and railways in Vietnam.
This is not the easiest task in the world as Vietnamese is not my first language (or any language for that matter) so I have to rely on English language data, and 'Google' Translations. The translations are often very odd so my apologies to those who wrote in the original Vietnamese.
Surprisingly since I started late last year (2009) I've collected quite a bit of data and quite a few photos, though there are some ommissions.
How long it will take me to get it all up online I don't know. So please be patient.
