Ferrovías del Bajío DMU AS1000 Series (Mexican DMU) | Royal Railway Cambodia

The Ferrovías del Bajío, S.A. de C.V. DMU AS1000 Series, also known as the Mexican DMU is a diesel multiple unit of the Royal Railway, operating on passenger routes throughout the Kingdom. The trains are manufactured in San Luis Potosí, SLP, Mexico. Though described as a DMU, with cars being able to operate in tandem with each other, the Ferrovías del Bajío DMU AS1000 Series typically as single car sets, which could justify its operations as a railcar or railbus instead. While originally ordered specially for the Airport Shuttle Train (hence the classification of AS- in front of the train number), the Ferrovías del Bajío DMU AS1000 Series regularly operates on the Phnom Penh – Sihanoukville Line due to rolling stock shortage.
