Australia-Thailand authorities agreed upon the project. The work has involved
the co-operation of the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Snowy Mountain
Engineering Corporation and the Australia Thai Chamber of Commerce headed by
the dynamic Ken Bradley. Also much is owed to Mr Jim Appleby senior resident
Engineer at the Khao Laem Dam project.
Jim Appleby, an engineer with SMEC at the Khao Laem dam-site on the upper Kwai
Noi, devoted much of his spare time investigating more accessible parts of the
abandoned railway. He compiled sketch maps and passed these to the
Australian-Thai Chamber of Commerce when he left Thailand in 1985. He has
continued his interest in the project though his work with the War Memorial in
Canberra and has unearthed many interesting documents relating to the railway
and, in particular, to the Hellfire Pass area.
