The Railway Station

Built in 1943, the recently renovated Dalat Railway Station has a quaint art deco style, with Vietnamese architectural elements. The interior features the original ticket windows. There is an original wood-burning steamer train on the tracks at the rear of the station. Originally the track ran 84 kilometres, linking Dalat with Thap Cham in Ninh Thuan Province and due to the vertical elevation, 17 kilometres of the track was a cog system, to prevent sliding. A 7 kilometre section of the line has been restored, with a newer Japanese train running to the tiny village of Trai Mat where you can visit Linh Phuoc Pagoda before returning.
