Tenom to Beaufort Train Trip

I had been looking forward to this train trip for ages and I specifically went to Tenom to ride this famous train. It goes from Tenom in the hills of south-west Sabah to Beaufort, which is near the coast. Anyhow, here is the famous train at the station in Tenom.

You can hang out the window, take photos, smoke. No fancy rules here.

The train followed the Padas River most of the way down the hill.

The track is getting work done on it. They are putting new sleepers in and building up a section of the track where it goes around this hill. These boys were working on the construction. We had to get out of the train and walk past this section.

Hopped off the other train and then we got on this one waiting for us. The other people going the other way got off this one and hopped on ours.

The engine was pushing from the back, then went into a siding and switched to the front.
