No. 45: Bangkok to Padang Besar

Special Express No. 45 is an international train that runs between Bangkok and Padang Besar in Malaysia. This leaves Bangkok at 3:10 p.m. and arrives in Padang Besar at 9:44 a.m. the next morning (10:44 a.m. Malaysian time). There are only two 2nd Class sleeper carriages. Lower berth is 960 Baht and Upper Berth is 870 Baht. However, two 3rd Class carriages with seats are added at Hat Yai Junction for the final stretch to Padang Besar. These seats are 50 Baht.

There is some confusion about this train. This is because for the first stretch between Bangkok and Hat Yai Junction it is joined together with Special Express No. 37. They are separated at Hat Yai Junction. No. 37 then takes the main line to Su-Ngai Kolok and No. 45, after two 3rd Class carriages are added, goes down the branch line to Padang Besar. For the return journey, they are again joined together at Hat Yai Junction.
