Street Art

Street art is very unusual in Cambodia, there are a very few of the more obvious hip-hop influenced pieces around but this piece on Street 430 has a different look to it.

Steam Trains at the Station.

One of these trains, from 1939, has been restored to working order and can be hired out for short trips. The wooden carriage behind has a large bar inside, it was Prince Sihanouk's carriage in the 1960s. The other engine which can be seen from Russian Boulevard when you pass the station is not in such good condition. The plate on the side dates it to 1912. There are quite a few other engines in the nearby sheds in various states of disrepair.
