Free trains to get makeover for State Railway’s 120th birthday

The set of old trains that are free for anyone to ride will receive a major makeover, the State Railway of Thailand announced yesterday, as the organization celebrates its 120th anniversary this year.

The 164 third-class cars will be repainted. The seats and fans will be improved to guarantee maximum comfort, and a “big cleaning” is expected to fix issues like dirty toilets, unpleasant smells, and the overwhelming amount of dust that can actually give you a red eye.

State Railway of Thailand Governor Wutthichart Kalayanamit said the makeover is a gift to citizens with low income and that the trains serve thousands of people each day.

The free trains that will receive a makeover operate on four routes: Bangkok – Chiang Mai, Bangkok – Su-ngai Kolok (Narathiwat), Bangkok Ubon Ratchathani and Bangkok – Nong Khai.

The improvements are expected to be complete by the organization’s 121th anniversary on March 26, 2017.
