I agree with you thet the Burma Railway should become a World Heritage Site.

It would be a fitting reward for all the Blood and Sweat put in by the forced Labour who built the Railway under terrible conditions during the last World War.

Many of those involved in its construction are now sadly dead and it would be a lasting tribute for the families of those involved.
