Sleeping Train

Bangkok train stationBangkok Train Station

Long and full your body of precious cargo trails along, guided by tracks of alloy stretching simultaneously into the distance.
The destination draws nearer as the progression onward is slow but sure, crawling steadily closer hour by hour.
Swaying gently your rhythm giving a sense of comfort, the soft lull of your engine in the ears of those on board.
