Free Guidebooks for Travelling by Train in Thailand

I am aiming on publishing the first edition of the Thai Train Guide at the end of 2022. My inspiration is the Bradshaw guide which was a kind of a bible for rail travellers in the UK and Europe during the 19th and 20th Centuries. Selected chapters will be available to download for free in advance. But if you do download them, you will be expected to help test run the guide and check for any mistakes. Suggestions are also very welcome. Thanks in advance!

The Mae Klong Railway is a unique line as it is separate from the rest of the rail network. It is also split in two as there is no railway bridge halfway down. The highlight is the market on the train tracks. There are 17 pages in this e-book.
