    That was an enthusiasts special. That's the only working loco in the UK. Took them 10yrs to restore.

    I think the trip was about 400 inc hotels etc
    Thing is, there's not much to do in Penzance so I hope they don't hang about.

    Oh hang on, they'll go to Lands End & St. Michaels mount for sure.

    There are no restrooms/bathrooms/toilets in BTS or MRT stations or trains. Luckily, there are so many malls by some stations that you can just use their public restrooms along the way. Although the MRT and BTS are the fastest ways to get around Bangkok, if your destinations are far apart, you may need to forward-plan your restroom visits.

    ...unfortunate generalization...some stations (like Krungthonburi and other newer stations) do have facilities...

    All stations have facilities for their staff.

    If ya busting to grown out a nasty turd ya just ask the staff to get security to let ya use it. Ya then back out the offending article into the shitter, wash ya hands and fook orf.

    Some of you supposedly tuned in expat fookers are so untuned in at times eh.

    Fook.

    Over the last few years I have observed the construction if the overhead rail system, amazing, even the older system that have been in place for 10 or 15 years are still a fantastic way to get around Bangkok.

    ...yes: (very) slowly the electric rail system is beginning to come together...remove politics and greed and everything would already be functioning...eventually, it will be possible to dodge flying pigs and take the BTS to the Laksi station and a "people mover" to the government complex at CW...eventually...

    No it wont. The Red line will run from Bangsue to Rangsit with a station at Laksi and Don Muang. Not connected to the BTS at all.

    There will be a Bang Sue to Mochit connection though.

    ...perhaps wishful thinking on my part...the various colored lines, stages of completion and line ownership are a tad confusing...later today, SD and I intend to explore the MRT extension from Bang Wa to...um...somewhere else...

    The MRT and BTS transport in Bangkok are simply sensational and the extending of the system is continuing at a furious space.

    The wankers who criticise the public transport in Bangkok are a waste of space and delusional.

    Specially coming from So - Cal.

    Be lucky to catch a fooking bus eh. Jessuusss

    Since we moved away from Sukhumvit have only used the BTS twice in about 3 years mostly use songthaew's 9 baht whatever the length of the journey.Plenty about normally wait about a minute occasionally overcrowded but only during happy hour.Got to get to the pubs and get that bargain shopping done.

    The new extension to the MRT is a wonderful thing for me.

    The Sam Yot station isn't far from my place of work and I take to the Phra Ram 9 station now for a bone crushing cost of 17B. A taxi then to my house for 100B. It gets a bit crowded, but nothing like the airport link. I'm hoping that when the orange line gets finished I can transfer from the the next station up on the MRT to a station close to my house.
