What happens when two trains meet on Cambodia's Bamboo Railway?

(5:08) From YT: "These trains run through the countryside around Battambang in Cambodia. They are an incredibly simple design and as the name suggest are made of a considerable amount of bamboo, which gives great strength for little weight. They run on the old railway lines that were built by the French when Cambodia was still a colony. So who gets right of way? Well the rule is the train with the most passengers gets right of way. However if a train is carrying a motorbike it has right of way over a train carrying more passengers. However everyone seems to take it in their stride and help each other out in taking the trains off the tracks."

We need to try that in the UK. It looks like everyone gets a seat, there's no shortage of trains and the weather is a bloody sight better.
