Gilligan Called, He Wants His Railroad Back

And you thought your commute sucked.

(Well, if you’re riding the Beleagured New Haven Line these days, it certainly does.)

Out there–and we do mean out there–in Thailand, Gilligan’s Island-esque bamboo trains ride the rails where actual trains used to run in better times.

The trains are known as “norrys”, reports the Wall Street Journal. They are motorized with pull-start engines, like your lawn mower, and run on wheels from abandoned tanks–relics from the Khmer Rouge reign. They run awfully close to cows and goats.

The WSJ has some fun video.
