The most dangerous, extreme and beautiful railways in the World. A video you must watch: the World's most incredible, unbelievable, unimaginable, impossible and amazing railways!

The most spectacular railways of the world, including:

- Maeklong Railway, Thailand: the railway crosses the Maeklong market, one of the largest fresh seafood markets in Thailand

- Burma railway, Thailand/Myanmar: also known as the Death railway, was built by the Empire of Japan during World War II

- Indian railways: India has the world's busiest railway system whit over 8 billion passengers every year and the most dangerous one: more than 25,000 people die annually on India's railways

- Nepal railways: Nepal has just two railway lines with a total of 37 miles (60 km) and the train makes only two trips a day

- Nariz Del Diablo railway, Ecuador: the construction of this railroad began in 1899 and its highest point has an altitude of 11,841 ft (3609 m)

- Rameswaram Pamban Bridge, India: it is considered the most dangerous sea bridge due to its location in a cyclone-prone high wind velocity zone

- White Pass and Yukon route, Alaska: the railroad began construction in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush to reach the goldfields

- Pilatus railway, Switzerland: the world's steepest cogwheel railway

- PaSak Chonlasit Dam, Thailand: one of the longest rail bridge in the world

- Kuranda railway, Australia: many lives were lost during the construction that began in 1882 to provide supplies to tin miners

- Gokteik Viaduct, Myanmar

- Gelmerbahn funicular, Switzerland: the second steepest funicular railway in the world (maximum incline: 106%) but definitely the most impressive one, giving the fun of a roller coaster

- Bernina and Albula railways, Switzerland, jointly recorded in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites; the Bernina railway is one of the steepest adhesion railways in the world across the Oberalp Pass on the highest point at 2,033 m (6,670 ft) in altitude

- Token exchange: this rudimentary and very dangerous railway signalling is incredibly still in use in some Asian nations, including Sri Lanka, Singapore and Thailand; a token is a physical object which a locomotive driver is required to have before entering onto a particular section of a railway

- North Borneo railway, Malaysia: construction began in 1896 and was almost entirely destroyed during the Second World War

- Mullan Pass, in the Rocky Mountains of Montana
