I would love to know what the UK health and safety gurus would have to say about that!

For anyone who wants to watch this look it up on youtube. It is fascinating. Thank you for bringing this to

Looks like a great way to slice bread, tenderize meat, mash potatoes ... all at once. Very resourceful.

Commuter rail? Wow! I knew of the market-running before, but I thought that it was limited intercity!

In regards it Amtrak7's comment, yes this probably is better classified as limited intercity. While you can drive here in under two hours from my home home central Bangkok, it it much more challenging (and also more enjoyable) to reach by rail. My rail journey here required, taking 1 subway train, 1 elevated train, 1 tuk-tk, train #1, 1 ferry, and train #2. Total trip time by public transi is about 4 hours. There are long term proposals that would involve turning much of the right of way of this rail line into a high speed line connecting Beijing to Singapore (via Bangkok). This proposed line would likely by-pass this remarkable scene.
