SRT English Language Timetable Available
I have completed a 55 page SRT English language timetable in PDF format. Those who wish to get a copy via e-mail attachment, contact me at email@example.com
You call your publication a timetable. I would call it 'A Complete Guide to Travelling by Train in Thailand'. You must have spent many hours putting it all together. I certainly have not seen so much information in one place before.
Thanks again for your effort and I hope it is widely available. I wonder if the SRT could put a link on their website.
Now, you can DUMP information to PR section of SRT since PR section of SRT just has its own Facebook. Take a look here!

By Popular Demands and the way to avoid being sardine canned in the free third class, third class carriages will be put into Ubon Express and Nong Khai Express - at least 4 Third class effective 25 May 2012
Third Class: 4 Carriages
Second Class Non Aircon Sleeper: 1 Carriage
Second Class Aircon Sleeper: 5 Carriages for Nong Khai Express (Express 69/70) or 6 Carriages for Ubon Express (Express 67/68)
First Class: 1 Carriage
Note: JR West carriages from Ubon express will be used for SP 13/14 (the Northern express) - No more JR West carriages for Ubon Express
Here is second class aircon seat carriage for the handicapped - modified by Makkasan Factory in 2012
First of 10 Second class Aircon carriages for the handicapped
Lavatory for the handicapped
Wheelchair racks inside the carriage
Seats covered with leather (Thai customers prefer leather over the velvet)
Wow! If those seats could be the new standard-seatings on all 1. and 2.cl carriages....

2nd class coaches
2nd class Seat without aircondition is in so bad conditions that it is no reason to spend money on them. SRT should insted rebuild( or invest in brand new ) coaches with only air-condition and the new leather seats. They should be renamed as 1.class, and then it is possible for SRT to rename the existing 3rd class to 2nd class.

Sadly, Third Class Aircon carriage is not so welcomed by passengers ... I have a hard time to sleep in Third Class Aircon carriage used in Nakhon Srithammaraj Express 85/86 though ....
