How do we find out what time the trains are.
Really want to see this but would love to experience being there as a train goes by.
I have a restaurant/bar on my list to visit which I believe is on the train track called Ray Quan, at 8a Nguyen Khuyen Dong Da. I'm hoping it's open in the day so I can grab a beer,sit outside and wait for the train! That way you can wait at leisure...
Jo that's brilliant I will add it to my list. Thank you.
Is the station called Lao Cai station

Perfect big a THANK YOU
"Is the station called Lao Cai station"
no, it's Hanoi Ga, Lao Cai is the destination for Sapa
Definitely a street I will be visiting next week....
We went to try and catch the train coming from Saigon which arrives approximately 3.33 pm. We stood there for an hour but no train came. We had no idea if it was maybe 2 hours late and as it started raining, we were not keen to stand any longer. The train leaves 7 ish or 7.30 in the evening but then it would be dark for photos. The houses near the track were amazing. One lady had an awning swung out which the train would have collected on its way through so we watched to see if she took it in. She obviously had inside information!! as it never moved!Edited: 07 May 2017, 08:39
I may be wrong, but l don't think the train from down south heads along that stretch of track.
The main Hanoi station is just before that part, so believe that the train has already terminated.
I think that part of the line is used for the Sapa trains, and perhaps for Haiphong, as well.
As l said, l may be wrong, so will do a bit of hunting around when l get a chance.
