Trains headed toward most parts of Thailand are now leaving Bangkok Bang Sue Grand Station as of today, except eastbound trains. Most long-distance, rapid, and express trains will now terminate at the station.

The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) said that tickets for long-distance trains will be available on the southern side of the ground floor.

The SRT said that making Bang Sue a terminus for most trains will ease travel, especially since it connects to the Red and Blue lines and is close to the Green, Purple and Pink lines, Nation Thailand reported.

The Bang Sue Grand Station opened last year and is the largest railway station in Southeast Asia. It has 26 platforms and 274,000 square metres of usable floor space.
