Makkasan Depot- Part IV: Repair building 1

Makkasan Depot

The Makkasan Depot and State Railway of Thailand (SRT) Maintenance Center area is in the center of the city (map). The entire area is slated to be redeveloped into a transport junction for the Airport Link Station for the new airport. The depot and maintenance operations would be moved to a location out of town. Also: Back in 2003, 2Bangkok.com proposed the area be Bangkok's new 'Central Park'

Lot and lots and lots of parts... The buildings are mainly lit by overhead skylights and have the smell of fresh clean oil (#6 on the map).

Despite the many varied parts, they all seem to be well-organized.
