Trains in Vietnam

My recent trip to Vietnam was fantastic.  If you want to see more pictures, please check out my main blog (link somewhere on the left hand side of this blog.

During the trip, I had the chance to see some interesting trains and I thought I should share them on this website.

The first is the original steam train the French used to go from Saigon to Da Lat when they wanted to escape the summer heat.  Based on the fact that it was over thirty degrees at the end of February in Saigon, I think that was a great idea.  Also, since Da Lat is a coffee producing region, have trains to carry the coffee beans was also a pretty good idea.

The second is  of the commuter train we took from Hue to Hanoi.  It left about 5:30 and we traveled until 5:30 in the morning.  I have a video, but I am unable to upload it to here.  When I have it uploaded to YouTube, I will put a link here.
