The train station with stationary train used to be a restaurant, with the train itself the bar. Follow the rails to the bridge. Electric fencing will block your path, but there is a loooong way around (2-3km). No walking around because you are not allowed to get out of your car in the park outside of the rest camps.

There probably will be elephants right underneath the bridge, or nearby; don't stray-you could be fined, or you could die.

    Apparently a stationary train on the bridge will be turned into a hotel and the station will be reception. As if there isn't enough accommodation already:

    The station has been renovated and is currently operating as a high-end restaurant.

    The bridge, with a train parked on it, is now a luxury hotel. Reception is at the station.
