Train stations in Thailand, next station Khon Kaen
Khon Kaen train station is located in the middle of what is nowadays the center of the city. Originally of course it was on the outside of the city. But nowadays the train-line goes straight thru the all city, with at 5 points major roads crossing the railroad. Although it is still a small train station it is not anymore the romantic looking wooden train stations like you see upcountry. At the train station are 2 platforms and basically two tracks. Although there are more tracks for the oil transport to/from the oil warehouse next to the train station (right in the city center!). But directly after and before the train station it is all the way single track. At least now in 2016, but big changes are coming soon.
Update : Currently in April 2018 there are huge constructions going on for an elevated double rail rail-road, so the small nice train station of Khon Kaen might soon be gone.
