Chinese-made train makes debut for short run in Thailand

A new train purchased from China by State Railway of Thailand (SRT) was launched on Monday with a short trip, which is the first new train for Thailand in 20 years.
The train ran from Bangkok to Nakhon Pathom and then came back to Bangkok on its first trip here, while SRT will put Chinese-made new trains into service on the Bangkok-Chiang Mai route in October and finally on three other routes as well: Bangkok-Ubon Ratchathani, Bangkok-Nong Khai; and Bangkok-Hat Yai.
“According to test runs, these trains are of high quality, and they are beautiful and comfortable for passengers, which makes them appropriate for our country.” said Tanongsak Pongprasert, deputy governor of SRT.
