When I first recorded this video 5 years ago this local train was faster in KPH than the Express or Rapid trains. As a matter of fact I think it still is.
The old coaches have a driver\navigator compartments in front of some cars. This was a great place to sit as there was an individual seat and for those slaves to the evil weed, you could smoke.
It was the most comfortable trip from Korat to Nong Khai back in the day.
The video has been blocked some places because the music was Credence so I have now gone to something less enjoyable but I am legal
