The old Nakhon Ratchasima railway station, which started operations in 1900 as the terminus for the first-ever Nakhon Ratchasima Line from Bangkok, has once again become popular with young tourists. Hundreds of them visit the station and take selfies in the old wrecked train after news reports that the station will be completely demolished and become a part of the double-track railways project soon.

On Wednesday (December 11), the generally quiet station was bustling with tourists taking photos on the railways track, the old abandoned train, and the vintage station.

For many it was a trip down memory lane, as the station is a part of their childhood memories. 

Nakhon Ratchasima locals invited tourists nationwide to visit the station before the building is demolished and suggested to take photos at 7am to 8am and 3pm to 5.30pm for the best lighting.
