Video: High speed trains coming to Thailand - forget 60kph new trains will top 250 kph!

TNN reported that Thai trains with an average speed of a pedestrian 60 kilometers per hour would soon be a thing of the past.

 

Government initiatives would see trains running between the main airports at top speeds of 250 kph. 

 

TNN said that Thailand was coming into the modern era with train travel set to be fast and efficient. 

 

An upbeat news report containing computer visualizations showed what was coming soon. 

 

They were referring to the links between Don Muang and U-Tapao near Pattaya via Suvarnabhumi airport. 

 

Speeds in the metropolitan area would be around 160 kph but after Bangkok's main airport heading for Pattaya top speed would be reached. 

 

The 220 kilometer line will be Thailand's first high speed network and is part of the present government's plans for the EEC or Eastern Economic Corridor.

I often read reports on here that quote mistakenly that a train hit a car while crossing the rails.

 

If these speeds become a reality in Thailand, I believe that the trains indeed go hit cars, far away from the rails

The important word here is 'coming'. Not here yet, planned for the future and no idea of quite when. With Thailand apparent lack of safety features and proper maintenance speeds of 250kph could have the trains competing with the cars for impressive wreckage.


Coming at that speed, it's already gone by now!!!!

Of course we're having it.

Just look at the Sino-Thai railway:

"a total of 13 construction contracts for the Bangkok-Nakhon Ratchasima route would be open for bidding in 2018 so that construction could be completed and the system become operational in 2021."

 

That's in three years. Isn't that fantastic!

You don't think someone may be lying to us, do you?
