Thais warned that trains arrive on time

thailande-trainRail passengers in central Thailand’s town of Phitsanulok have been warned by the State Railway of Thailand that they should arrive at the train station at scheduled times and not as usual two hours later because trains will be punctual – at least for a short period of time and just south-bound trains.

Due to maintenance work on the railroad track, trains from the north will not start from Chiang Mai which is 362 kilometers away, but from a closer station only 100 kilometers away, which will the trains highly likely cause to arrive as scheduled.

Regular travelers normally appear at the station well after the scheduled departure time because they expect the train to be late anyway.

Full service will resume on November 1, then things will return to the normal delay.

The railway system in Thailand is in dire need for maintenance after a number of trains derailed in the past weeks. The trains are also infamous for not adhering to time schedules.
