An artists impression of how the Paknam Railway Monument will look. This commemorates the first railway in Thailand.
Satellite map shows the location of the monument in front of Wiboonsri Market and Samut Prakan Pier. The station was located at the market.
(4th November 2009): Clearing the area to make way for the monument.
(3rd January 2010): Working on the concrete base.
(5th February 2010): The framework of the monument is now up and you can see the outline of the steam train chimney in the center.
It is expected to be finished by the end of this month. I will post some more pictures at www.paknamphotos.com.
