THANK YOU!!!! So much for this. I absolutely Adore train travel in Thailand. The non-AirCon cars are my favorite. I've only taken a few rides (less than 10) but I cannot wait to take the next one. Side Trip Life's YT channel was the initial inspiration for the trips and now THIS BLOG is my go to for planning my next trip(S). I'm so grateful for You and the work you put into this. PLEASE let me know if I can help in any way.
All the best,

Thanks very much for your kind comments. For sure there will be more trip planners coming. I am researching them for the guide books at the moment and will do web versions as well.

Have you tried downloading the app. You might find that better. Information on the Train Schedules page. Go to Quick links in the menu.

Hi Richard Barrow, good day. I had just bumped into your website and found all the interesting information with your first hand knowledge and experience in Thai railway and trips. It comes very very useful as it is a wonderful experience to travel by train and not rushing.

And I would like to congratulate you on your upcoming book on the Thai railway after doing so much extensive research on them. Keep it up.

Great to know this via Pat's intro. Great info and tips. I had hop on at Asok train station heading to Chachoengsao several times. Love to see outside of the window the field the green and the rain the breeze the monk and the students taking trains to school. Give people hope that next generation is working hard and so modest.

Continue your work and let us know if you put up a photo exhibition in a venue sometime. Any plan?

Thank you so much for all the hard work that must have gone into producing the guide books. I'm so going to enjoy reading and using it.
