Since then the train has been put back on its tracks and acts as a mourning ground for some 1,200 victims who lost their lives from the Tsunami this incident. The Tsunami that hit southeast Asia December 26, 2004, totals over 200,000 dead, thousands still missing and over two thirds of the shoreline and its immediate vicinity destroyed.
