A close up of a proper railway-style railmotor, which was nearly new. I cannot ready the stylised lettering using any alphabet which I know (Hebrew is the best fit, but Israel imported; it did not build and export).
Since it isn't a converted truck, not many features would be recognisable: just the grille and the badge. It could even be a modern Hino, building on a long-standing trading arrangement.

This is not Hebrew and certainly not one of the Leyland Royal Tigers sold to Burmese operators in the 80s. You are correct in saying that the chassis were not produced in Israel - they were assembled from CKD kits by Leyland Ashdod in... Ashdod. However, coachwork was Israeli by either Mercavim or Haargaz. Here are a few pics of the ex-Israeli Leylands in use in Burma.
Thanks Tatra for two helpful replies.
I too had been going for Skoda for the cream truck-bus.
The rail one is confirmed as Hino based. That is a Hino badge, with the roman script changed to highly-stylised Burmese. Normally Burmese is round bubbles; that lettering is squared.
The original photos are no longer on my flickr account.
I won't repost here. Have just the link to a flickr view which should survive for a few years:
Here is the badge.
