Free passenger train from Bawdwin to Namtu, Myanmar Mines Railway, (60cm gauge), approaches the upper reversal point at Tiger Camp, Myanmar, January,2002.

Pentax ME, Kodachrome 200, 80-300mm lens at around 90mm. 

There are four of these free trains a day, with converted trucks for traction  and ancient trailers. They all run as packed as this.  Again, the attraction is the pure "narrow gauge" feel of this very modern equipment, and the obvious place of this facility for the local community. This is a very human train.
