You had better use the revised version that show 4 tracks instead as shown here:
http://www.bangsue-rangsitredline.co...re%20Red-2.pdf

Intercity train use track 2,3 (the inner pair)
red line commuter use track 1,4 (the outer pair)

15-year Leasing 50 locomotives at 13,344,042,437 Baht while revising TOR for 50 first hand locomotives at 6,562.5 Million Baht to replace GEK to deal with shortage of serviceable locomotives and the retirement of GEK + Leasing 200 BCFs at 2,323.22 Million Baht

In Year 2016 will have 160 serviceable loco to meet the demands of 136 locos -
In Year 2017 will have 152 serviceable loco to meet the demands of 144 locos -
In Year 2018 will have 90 serviceable loco to meet the demands of 154 locos - so the leasing is critical

Clear Point for BTS Logistics - 60 year concession and the line from 516 km Laem Chabang to Khon Kaen route with 160 km extension to Nong Khai while they are thinking about the feeder from Thanon Jira to Ubon (309 km) and Ban Phai to Nakhon Phanom (354 km) - Nevertheless, the investment on this system need new signals and electric supply to run electric cargo trains at least about 48 billion Baht so the private sector can invest on new electric locos, new BCFs -system maintenance center at 2 billion Baht
