Yesterday 7 sets (count them) of rolling stock were 'parked' on the viaduct while works are undertaken in the depot;


An even better vantage point from the nearby apartment complex gives a better perspective looking east. Note the current haze in Bangkok.

ARL : Airport rail link testing...

From Thai forum by Yappofloyd

[QUOTE=Yappofloyd;31868484]I was travelling south along Srinagarindra rd yesterday afternoon and as I approached the Airport Line I spotted a stationary train above the road just west of the Hua Mark station. Thinking that there may be a problem with a test run I stopped to see what was going on;


Gaining a better vantagte point a most interesting sight of 7 sets (count them) of rolling stock 'parked' on the viaduct revealed itself;


An even better vantage point from the nearby Floraville complex gave a better perspective. I assumed that there were some works taking place in the depot requiring the removal of all rolling stock.

Airport train to open on Aug 12

Bangkokpost Published: 13/02/2009 at 08:38 PM


The Airport Link from the Phaya Thai and Makkasan areas of downtown Bangkok to Suvarnabhumi airport is set to open for passengers on Aug 12, the birthday of Her Majesty the Queen, deputy Transport Minister Sopon Zarum said on Friday.

He conceded some facilities, including the baggage carousel system, would not be ready on the opening day, but he said he needed to speed up its launch.

The luggage-loading service at Makkasan station would not be operational, so there might be some inconvenience for passengers with heavy bags.

The construction of the 28-km route is 96 per cent complete. There have been delays to work at some stations and route sections due to hold-ups in land acquisitions, said SRT deputy governor Prasert Attanan.

The SRT plans to collect a fare of 150 baht from passengers taking non-stop trains while those travelling on trains that stop at every station will pay between 15 and 45 baht.

Airport Rail Link project 98% complete: Transport Minister


BANGKOK Feb 13, (TNA) - The Suvarnabhumi Airport rail link project is almost complete and will be ready to offer services in mid-August 2009 as planned, Minister of Transport Sopon Zarum affirmed on Friday.

Presiding at a test-run of a train from Ramkhamhaeng Station to Suvarnabhumi Station, Mr. Sopon said both the infrastructure and operating system are now 98 per cent completed.

He said the Airport Rail Link between Suvarnabhumi Airport to the City Air Terminal in the Makkasan area can be fully operational on schedule on August 12.

If the baggage check-in system at the City Air Terminal is not be completed in time, he said, the service would operate for passengers only, without the baggage check-in service.

It would operate with full service once the check-in facility is completed, said the minister.

As the Airport Rail Link line will be owned and operated by State Railway of Thailand (SRT), Mr. Sopon instructed the SRT to speed up the plan to set up a subsidiary company to administer the overall operations in order to get ready for the operation in August.

According to a preliminary study, the fare for an express trip will be Bt150 per person while the fare for City Line commuter trips, would vary from Bt30-50 per passenger.

Transport for airport express riders and local commuters will run on the same track with the same equipment, but with a staggered schedule.

Premium-fare express services will run on the hour between Suvarnabhumi Airport and City Air Terminal, while the City Line service would stop at six stations along the route.

However, the current study will be sent to the Ministry of Transport for consideration and making decision about possible fare changes. (TNA)

Makkassan will be Bangkok's version of KL Sentral. Congratulation. Hope to see more extension in the LRT and MRT to solve the transport woes.

SRT should electrify its commuter line soon

Express & Local Trains for airport

Will these airlink trains (Express and Local) serve for 24 hours from Makasan to Airport after opening date on August 12th, 2009? Will we use one card to transfer to BTS or MRT trains from Airlink train station once or not?

Is Airlink station at Suvarnabhumi Airport completed built in system 100 percent? Will passenger be provided to take a ride for commuting to city from the airport for a several days before opening date? This sounds good idea for passengers to get idea of what the airlink train feels like for free!!!
