    Gold Line will be a ''people mover'' line, neither a rail or monorail. Can be built quicker I suppose.

    Translation:

    ITD closing two lanes of Charoen Nakhon road for 2 years to construct 1070 million Baht Golden line AGT to feed ICON SIAM to be opened in December 2019 with 15 Baht flat rate

    BTSC has been hired to run Golden line AGT using 2 sets of Bombadier Innova300 driverless AGT in 3-car formation with 3 minute interval

    There will be 3 stations
    1. Krung Thonburi to connect with Krung Thonburi station of BTSC
    2. Charoen Nakhon - connecting with ICON SIAM near Charoen Nakhon Soi 6 near Wat Thong Pleng Bridge
    3. Klong San near Taksin hospital with skywalk to connect with Taksin hospital and a plan to connect with red line commuter once red line commuter has managed to cross Chao Phraya river to Bang Bon and Mahachai











    Construction started a few months ago









    Here's a nice 30min show all about the line




    As it isn't really a railway, I'm not too enthusiastic. It's alright for the likes of tomcat who will use the line as a hiso shuttle to another posh mall.

    I can offically announce that getting through the Lam Sali intersection will take you at least 20 minutes.

    Is the gold line gonna be another (small) elevated rail system that's run by a different company than the rest?

    So far in Bkk, there's the BTS, MRT (Which I believe will be elevated in parts), Airport link and the new SRT that's gonna past Don Muang, so that's 4 elevated rail systems in one city and none of them are compatible or run by the same company/organization.

    Is the Gold Line gonna make it 5?

    imo that's less embarrassing than the truth that he 'ordered' you to return.

    Ordered better than physically dragged by my ear, as some claimed.

    It was my cousin who instigated the whole thing, not my dad. She 'grassed' me up

    where's my pic?

    OH ok it works


    I had better things to do

    Anyway time for a proper bump

    Lat Phrao Intersection station. Odd layout and 3 platforms, as it will be the terminus for about a year and a bit before the rest opens.

    What, she told your father you were doing her up the gary?

    That must have been a difficult conversation.

    You should get yourself over to Bang Sue, Pat.

    Went through the project there on the night train from CM about a month ago.

    It's massive.

    Ta for rail info Pat is there a live map of what is actually running today that is liev updates, you and others have posted maps of projected lines,

    A journey planner like Copenhagen Paris or London be handy

    You put in your journey and a computer offers routes, next rain tram and final walk to home office bar etc

    I'd guess such an app funded by ads be a money spinner if reliable in real time?

    The good ones show fastest, least change handicap access, toilets etc
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    you can start by refunding me the 70 Baht for the beer I bought you in 2006. That's almost 2 quid for starters



    Anyway talking of memories

    I've been out taking the ''now'' ones. The pics were wasted in Hung Lao's photo thread as he said they weren't from over 100yrs ago

    I started this on another thread when I'd done just a few but as it's not really suitable for the old photos thread I didn't bother






    Gonna start a thread instead.
