This service comprises of just 3rd class seat coaches which are fan cooled and as you can see from the schedule above, this train stops nearly everywhere along its route.
When you board the train you may find two types of carriages. The wooden seat or padded side seats carriages. Personally I prefer the wooden seats, as you can sit and watch the world go by with a nice wind to keep you cool, rather than having you back to the window in the padded carriages.
Tickets on these Ordinary trains are very cheap for tourists (free
for Thai people) and if you wanted to do the total journey on train
251’s route, it would cost you just 56 Baht to travel the 301 kilometres
from Bangkok to Prachuap Khiri Khan.
Much cheaper than the bus
fare along this route, it is a really cheap way to travel and very handy
for shorter trips to less well known destinations on the Gulf of
However, these services do tend to spend a lot of time
waiting at stations for the faster and more expensive Rapid and Express
trains to pass, so be prepared for delays!
