The Railways of Thailand by R. Ramaer

New 2009 revised and extended edition of R. Ramaer's definitive book on the Thai Railways

The Railways of Thailand was originally intended to describe the development of the locomotive stock of the State Railway of Thailand, and published as such in 1984.

Questions and suggestions from readers and the present publisher made the story grow, not only in length, but also in scope. In this third edition it covers the development of locomotives, carriage and wagon stock as well as the rail network itself since the beginnings of rail transportation in what was then Siam during the last decade of the 19th. century.

It also includes secondary, partly non-government lines as well as a short overview of industrial lines. These are not treated in detail, they form a subject in itself and should not be limited to an appendix in a book on common-carrier railways.

The text has been revised and extended and is supported by several maps, 200 largely unpublished photographs, both in black-and-white and colour, and 70 diagrams.
