The best day time train to book is Train #22 which has 3 carriages of air-conditioned 2nd and 3rd class seats. Meals and drinks are included in the ticket price on Train #22. Of the 4 overnight trains the best service is Train #24 which uses the State Railway of Thailand’s brand new train carriages introduced into service in November 2016. 1st and 2nd class air-conditioned sleeper berths are available on Train #24. Train #142 is the worst of the overnight services because the only seat types available are fan cooled 2nd and 3rd class seats, which are cheap but you will not get a comfortable night’s sleep on Train #142 for this reason.
