Malaysia's Jungle Railway

"Bank slip" says the guard as the mail train creaks to a halt under leaden skies, somewhere amidst the primeval jungle at the heart of the Malayan Peninsula. Back around 1990, the monsoon rains imposed a forceful reminder that to travel hopefully on the East Coast Railway, also known as the Jungle Railway, is more important than to arrive.

This time around, a more successful but less eventful journey ensued. Most of these images were taken with Nikon D200 (10 mpx) using RAW format, all are available for licensing. Please visit www.travelgame.org.
