Train Expeditions

      Train expeditions in Myanmar are unforgettable events. The beautiful scenes and natural views from the train window can show you the unchanged lifestyle from years. You will encounter the green paddy fields, mountain ranges, the blue sky, the nature and its people. During the Japanese occupation in Myanmar, a number of gauge engines from Japan were adjusted to run in Myanmar. More of the additional machines were brought with the allied forces. Still the pre-war designed trains can still be found in Myanmar. There are steam locomotives which are getting extinct in the world today.
      There are trips which take about 14 days traveling from Yangon. The destination plans starts from Yangon and crosses Thazi, Mandalay, Lashio and Bagan.       There are also trips from Yangon to Namtu and then up from Namtu to Nashai, Namyao. Then back from Nashai to Lashio in coach.       The cute locomotives running the trips are Kerr Stuart "Huxley" class 0-4-2T No. 13, Bagnall-built 2-6-2 No. 42, which use for shunting at Namyao. Two more of the Huxley class, No 34 and 40 are preserved in Namtu yard for shorter routes.
