Air-raid on Kaeng Khoi Railway Station

Aerial views from one of the RAF Liberator aircraft during the attack on the marshalling yards in Kaeng Khoi on 2nd April 1945. This was a major Japanese train repair centre. In less than an hour, these facilities had been blasted away.


Looks like at least this one shed survived the air raid in 1945. With all the smoke, it’s difficult to tell how many houses were there. Elsewhere, all rice fields. But Wat Kaeng Khoi is in that smoke somewhere.

    I am currently on holiday, my school being shut til August. I am loving trawling through these pages, Richard, when I retire next June at 60 I certainly intend to try out as many railway lines as I can. This is a brilliant resource.

      Thanks Carl. There’s a lot more to come. I’m hoping to have the first draft of the guide by the end of this year. Then I will test it out during 2023.
