No strangers for second handed carriages but need to make further research from second handed carriages to improve the existing carriages or even building the new carriages on their own
http://www.matichon.co.th/news/374465

Even Indonesian railfans have mentioned about the first 10 Blue train carriages from JR Hokkaido has been delivered to Thailand at Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port

the new special express using CRRC Changchun carriages such as Utaravithi (BKK - Chiang Mai) and Isan Watana (BKK - Ubon) are really popular so Isan Marakha (BKK - Nong Khai) and Thaksinarat (BKK - Hatyai) special express using CRRC Changchun carriages will be introduced on 2 Dec 2016

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beij...-Speed_Railway

i really thinks this line needs to go to phuket/krabi area if we wanted a higher speed. it's has a huge demand from both thai and malaysian/singaporean while being a good midways points for the 1500km lines. 3 hours++ from phuket to bangkok or KL seems very competitive to flights.
Something a trillion Baht or two to implement the high speed train from Bangsue Central all the way to Padang Besar at 300 - 350 kph which is not going to please Isan folks and Northerner who also pressing the demands for High Speed train for their region to the bitter end - a real tug of war without doubt.

for the line to Phuket, Just revive the line to Tha Nun (the gateway to Phuket) near the foot of Sarasin Bridge across Strait of Pak Phra ...

Even though SRT as well as Phuket people want the train to go across Strait of Pak Phra from Tha Nun to Tha Chatchai, the main obstructive elements are
1) those Muslim folks Strait of Pak Phra and Tha Chatchai
2) the big bone of contention at Srinart National park near Mai Khao beach and Mai Khao airport (AKA Phuket International Airport)

Muslim folks Strait of Pak Phra and Tha Chatchai have their point that why the have to be obstructive elements to the bitter end - with support form Southern NGOs of course.
http://manager.co.th/Travel/ViewNews...=9590000120081

Thirty-six private firms have shown interest in bidding for the construction of five dual-track rail routes worth altogether 95.8 billion baht through an e-auction, according to an informed State Railway of Thailand (SRT) source.

The 36 firms purchased bidding envelopes which were put on sale from Dec 14 - Jan 5. The SRT will take representatives of the firms to see the construction sites and hold a meeting to explain the projects to them in detail. After that the firms will be given 15 days to prepare and submit technical proposals for consideration. A list of the firms qualified to bid for the projects will be announced on Feb 20. Bidding will be by e-auction on March 1-2. The names of those with the lowest bids will be forwarded to the SRT board and the cabinet for final approval. Contracts were expected to be signed by the end of March, after which construction could begin right away, the source said.
