Recommended Posts



Ten more trains will be added on the northern and northeastern routes for Bangkok residents visiting and returning from their hometowns during the Songkran festival, the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) said on Friday.


Five additional trains will run on April 11 and 12 and another five on April 16 and 17, said SRT director of public relations Ekarat Sriarayanphong.




The SRT will also add carriages to other trains and accelerate maintenance so they can carry more passengers.


“This move will enable SRT to support up to 100,000 passengers per day from April 11-17,” Ekarat said, adding that no passengers will be left behind.

Make sure the crossings are gated when these trains roll through...

You're assume they will not either rush the closing gate and get stuck or even try and jump over the train like some American stunt driver
