This is the Pacific Steam Locomotive 824 as it arrived at Ayutthaya railway station this morning. It was manufactured in Japan and was then first used in Thailand in 1949. The locomotive was recently refurbished and refitted with a new boiler, electric generator and genset air compressor. It was also given a fresh layer of body paint. It is used on special occasions like the run today celebrating the anniversary of the State Railway of Thailand.
