Thoughts on teaching, technology, learning and life in an era of change.
Message from Thailand-Burma Railway Centre
August 29th, 2007

I received a thoughtful email from Terry Manttan at the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre. His email reads as follows…

“Hello John

I just came across your web site and found another interesting personal story of the railway.
I am not sure if you got to visit our Museum when you came to Kanchanaburi in 2003 as we had only opened in January of that year and were not well known. We are located next door to the main War Cemetery in town and are now getting around 90,000 visitors per year including quite a number of ex PoW railway workers and many of their relatives, mostly from the UK, Australia and Holland.

Attached is a little introduction and you can also have a look at our website, listed below.
We would be grateful if you would consider adding a link to our site on yours as another means of helping connected people find where they can come for information.
Thanks for your efforts in helping keep the story alive.

Best regards


Terry Manttan

I shall add this web site to the links page on my web site. The web site is most informative and well illustrated. It also includes a rich set of links and resources.
