Bangkokians flocked to Hua Lamphong Station on Sunday to take photographs of the historic Pacific steam locomotives No 824 and 850 as they pick up passengers for a special trip to Ayutthaya.

The State Railway of Thailand brought out the steam trains dating back to the World War II-era to mark the 94th birthday of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great.

This may be the last steam train to pull out of Hua Lamphong if the Transport Ministry does not lift its order of closure.
