Chumphon Railway Station

Chumphon Railway Station is in Tha Taphao Subdistrict, Chumphon City, and is the main railway station for Chumphon Province. It is a class 1 railway station, 468.534 km (291.1 miles) from Thonburi Railway Station. It is the first fueling station from Bangkok, and thus all trains going further south must stop here. Chumphon is also the site of a locomotive depot. During the Second World War, Chumphon was a junction for the 90 km military line to Khao Fachi, Ranong, under the coordination of the Imperial Japanese Army. The line was built in December 1943. In March 1945, Allied aircraft destroyed Chumphon station and the line to Khao Fachi. Chumphon Station was rebuilt in 1948. – Wiki

DOWN TRAINS:

There are some nice views as the train passes through Prachuap Khiri Khan and Chumphon provinces and so you may want to consider a day train. The best one is Special Express No.43 which is an air-conditioned diesel rail car. If you prefer sleeper trains, Express No. 85 and Special Express No. 39 arrive at a good time. If you are planning a boat connection to Koh Tao, please note these trains are often an hour late.
