The "Bamboo" train is Cambodia's idea of recycling abandoned railroad tracks. The "trains" are about 4 feet by 10 feet bamboo mats propelled along the abandoned tracks by a 6 horsepower go kart engine. People used to use them to shuttle between villages on the rail line and to haul merchandise to local markets.
