Lamphong Train Station, known more formally as the Bangkok Train
Station, is the city’s main railway station, the terminus of lines headed
north, south and east through Thailand and for the city’s mass transit system. Thai photographer

of diesel smoke and light gave the scene a film noir quality. Narula found it
magical, and utterly unique.
