Thaksin Express

The Special Express 37/38, informally-known as the Thaksin Express, is a popular daily Special Express train operating between Bangkok and Sungai Golok which borders Malaysia at Rantau Panjang, stopping at major stations along the route. This train runs combined with the International Express Special Express 45/46 plying between Bangkok and Padang Besar, Malaysia. The two trains will run as a single rake between Bangkok and Hat Yai, and thereafter split off to run independently on its own journeys to Sungai Golok and Padang Besar respectively.
