Other Cambodian Railway bits and pieces in the Battambang area.
Battambang does have a railway station which is on the western side of the city at the end of Pir Thnu Street. [ note this is not where you can get the Bamboo Train ride
]. The station is not in use however the front of the ticket office building with it's clock (which stopped at a few minutes past 8) does not look too bad and almost appears like it's sort of nearly open for business.
Although the entrance doors are locked you can get onto the platform easily enough either side of the building. In reality there is not a lot of railway left - there are several buildings and sheds around but they are pretty much falling down. Some of the original
what must have been extensive freight and carriage sidings still exist but are now covered in weeds. There are also several very rusty freight trucks on the remnants of these old freight sidings to look at
and several equally rusty looking signal gantries.
