Thailand, Cambodia ready to relaunch rail link 

Thailand looks set to re-establish a rail link with Cambodia 45 years after the two countries terminated cross-border train service.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and Cambodian Premier Hun Sen will preside over a ceremony to reopen the track connecting Aranyaprathet district of Sa Kaeo with Cambodia’s Poipet town on Monday.

The two leaders will meet at Ban Klong Luk Border station at the Thai border and ride a historic train for two kilometres across the border to Poipet. They will be riding in one of four passenger carriages that Thailand has refurbished and will deliver to Cambodia as a goodwill gesture after the event.
