Aici putem pune filme, imagini din Asia de Sud-Est
Mai intai pun cateva imagini din Vietnam, mai exact din capitala acestui stat atat de mediatizat la noi pe timpul comunismului, din Hanoi. Eu stiu putin despre dezvotarea tarii, din acea regiune ne parvin putine date si imagini, de aceea putem deduce cateceva din acest film si sa vedem caile ferate(din 2017) de acolo.
Cert este ca tara este subdezvoltata, partidul comunist este omniprezent(chiar daca azi se numeste altfel! - mai stim noi alte tari asemanatoare...), coruptia este "vizibila"(vedeti cum sunt construite casele, blocurile, ce aiureala), iar locomotiva urla continuu, chiar mai mult ca in Romania.

Prayut Chan-o-cha, the Prime Minister of Thailand, has launched the three-month trial period of the Bangkok Red Line via video conference on august 2, 2021.
The ceremony was held at the newly-constructed Bang Sue Central Station in Chatuchak, Bangkok, where the Minister of Transport Saksayam Chidchob, and the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) governor Nirut Maneephan, Japanese ambassador to Thailand Nashida Kazuya and the chief representative of JICA in Thailand, Morita Takahiro attended.
The Red Line connects the city’s northern and southern suburbs with inner city areas, providing additional transport connections to the electrified rail network. It connects the Bangkok city centre with the north, east, south and west suburban areas.
The total length of the line is 41 km linking Rangsit in the northern area of Bangkok and Taling Chan in the western part of the capital. 26 km of the MRT line runs from Bang Sue to Rangsit and Bang Sue Stations, bringing passengers to the north through the 10 stations. This section will link the two terminal stations within 25 minutes. The line has also a 15 km-long elevated section served by 3 stations to the west direction from Bang Sue to Taling Chan. On this section, the passenger will travel 15 minutes.
The passengers will be able to run for free during the trial period, until November, when the Red Line is expected to enter commercial operation. During trials, the service will operate every 30 minutes between 6:00 AM and 8:00 PM and every 15 minutes during rush hour a 78 trips per day will be made, accommodating 1,710 passengers per trip on the Bang Sue-Rangsit section and 1,200 passengers per trip on the Bang Sue – Taling Chan section.
The Bang Sue Central Station is the newest train station constructed in Thailand and country’s new main railway station. Construction works started in 2013 and were completed this year. The station, which is also known as Grand Station, has a total usable area of 298,200 square metres and consists of a total of 3 floors. The first floor, which has an 87,200 square metres area, is a ticketing area, shops, food courts and offices, waiting area and is offering the connection with the Blue Line. With an area of 58,900 square metres, the second floor benefits 8 long-distance train platforms and 4 platforms for the Red Line suburban trains. The 58,900 square metre-area comprises the third floor providing transport links to the airport and high-speed rail network through the 12 platforms. In addition, there is also a mezzanine floor that serves as a shop area and a control room. The new station also provides 1,681 parking spaces and 19 parking spaces for the disabled people.
The Bangkok Red Line will provide fast, modern and comfortable connections in the Bangkok metropolitan area reducing the travel time, the emissions and the congestion across the city.
The Prime Minister said that the government has formulated a 20-year national strategic plan which started in 2018 and will be implemented until 2037, which includes the development of the transport infrastructure focusing on heavy rail and mass transit train systems in Bangkok and across the country. The strategy also includes the development of double-track lines and the high-speed rail network with the first phase running on the 251 km line from Bangkok to Nakhon Ratchasima in northeastern Thailand. This high-speed connection will allow trains to run at a speed of 250 km/h and is expected to be opened in 2026 when it will serve three airports.

Prima linie de metrou din Vietnam
Hanoi gets country’s 1st metro service
The Cat Linh - Ha Dong metro line in Hanoi began commercial operation Saturday morning, 10 years after its construction began.
The service, Vietnam’s first, would help increase the number of public transport users, and together with the nine other routes planned, form a key transport network to help reduce traffic congestion, the city Deputy Chairman, Duong Duc Tuan, said.
The first train left Cat Linh Station in downtown Dong Da District at 7:40 a.m. for Yen Nghia Station in Ha Dong District to the southwest.
A full trip on the 13-kilometer elevated track will take 23 minutes after stopping at all 12 stations.
After being free for the first 15 days, it will cost VND8,000–15,000 ($0.35–0.66) for a ticket.
There will also be monthly tickets for VND100,000-200,000.
In the first week, the service will be from 5.30 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day with a train every 15 minutes. The frequency will be increased from the second week with a train leaving every 10 minutes.
After six months, the service will be extended to 10.30 p.m., and there will be a train every six minutes during rush hour.
Built by China Railway Sixth Group Co Ltd, the project took 10 years to complete with hurdles and conflicts delaying the work several times.
Its cost increased by 57 percent from the original estimate to VND18 trillion ($868 million), with 77 percent of it coming from official development assistance loans from China.
The city of 8.3 million people is plagued by traffic congestion during rush hour due to the large number of motorbikes and cars.
