A detailed account of exotic steam train journeys through Burma and Thailand searching out the remains of the notorious Second World War Death Railway. THAILAND: The Burma-Siam railway was built for the Japanese by Asian forced labour and Allied prisoners of war. Of the latter a staggering 12,500 died in the brutal and inhuman conditions imposed in the Speedo regime in 1943. We ride a tourist train over the creaking wooden trestle bridges built by prisoners and visit the famous Hellfire Pass hacked out of bare rock by Britons and Australians. With an original World War Two locomotive, the Thais provide a spectacular sound and light memorial show at the famous Bridge On The River Kwai at Kanchanaburi. BURMA (Myanmar): To explore the Western end of the Death Railway we travel from Rangoon on local trains hauled by old British steam locomotives from the days of the Raj. Passing through exotic scenery we visit the famous WW2 Sittang Bridge battle site, cross the Salween river to Moulmein, visit Thanbyuzayat with its Death Railway memorial and Allied cemetary, and return to Thailand to visit the border at the remote Three Pagodas Pass.
