website is an attempt to present a collection of information and images
of trains and railways in Vietnam.
This is not the easiest task in the world as Vietnamese is not my first language (or any language for that matter) so I have to rely on English language data, and 'Google' Translations. The translations are often very odd so my apologies to those who wrote in the original Vietnamese.
Surprisingly since I started in late 2009, I've collected quite a bit of data and quite a few photos, though there are many ommissions.
I am particularly greatful to the members of the Vietnam railways Forum who knowingly or unknowingly allowed me to access their site and use material. Without the forum this site would be much poorer.
I apologize for any errors or omissions. They are all my own work.
