The State Railway of Thailand on Friday successfully completed a first test
run of train service linking Nong Khai to Vientiane, Laos.
The 3.5-kilometer railway is expected to inaugurate the international
service in August. The inauguration service will be presided over by HRH
Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.
Thai and Lao authorities plan test-run services twice per day until July
15. The train fares will range from Bt50 to Bt20 per passenger.
