About Southeast Asia Railways Substack

My name is James Clark, publisher of


I also administer a Facebook Group for Southeast Asia Railways.

Between these two sites I curate new about current and proposed railways of Southeast Asia every week. This newsletter will be a monthly summary of news related to railways in Southeast Asia. This might become more frequent if there is enough news.

If you are already a subscriber of Future Southeast Asia then you might be wondering if it is the same information. There will be some overlap, but this newsletter will include travel news and trip reports, and some other news that doesn’t make the cut at Future Southeast Asia. I realise that some readers only want rail news, so this newsletter will better serve that group.
