Circle line

151119-013-edited

As an ex-Londoner, when I think of the circle line, I think of city centre tube stations: Embankment, Victoria, Paddington, Baker Street. Yangon’s circle line is a little different. From Yangon Central station, I took the train through the suburbs and countryside to Mingaladon, where the local market spills over into the station, and then completed the loop back to the city.

    Yes, the line is completely different from the tube in London. The railway in Yangon is a photographer’s paradise. I took the trip last year and will hopefully get to get on the train in the next coming months. Great pictures.

        That’s shorter than I expected. Too bad we didn’t have the time to ride that train but it’s on my list for next time.

    Looks like they have upgraded the rolling stock since I was there in Jan 2013. Looks less crowded, too. Great pictures.

    Wonderful series. You’ve captured so well the feeling of Yangon and the outlining areas. I particularly enjoyed the interior of the train cars. Such an interesting piece of life.
