Sihanoukville Railways Station

I have a dream of visiting and photographing all existing main railway stations in Cambodia. It is not a very difficult task as long as I have time and some travelling money, since there are only two lines in Cambodia, one connecting Phnom Penh and Poipet at Thai border and another one linking the capital and Sihanoukeville. There are three important stations for the line to Sihanoukville located in Takeo, Kampot and Sihanoukville.

This is a post for Sihanoukville station that I re-visited last week. The station was designed by Georges Kondracki and completed in 1969. It ceased to function around 2005. By the time of my last visit there were a few workers guarding the station and construction materials. Rainwater was leaking through the concrete roof, yet the building was relatively in good shape. According to a guard, the station will be renovated soon.
