train #75 2nd Class AC seats only, Thai Railways, Oct 3, 2019
The service from 12go was really good - they left my ticket with their night security man, so I could pick my ticket up before my 8am train. Good service. The train - 2nd class air con wasn't good - ditto the other comments about the toilets running into the carriage, the noise, the heat - I think that the 'air con' was no more than a ceiling fan.

The trip was very comfortable with generous leg room. Snacks and lunch were provided. Blankets at the beginning of the trip and facial wipes at the near end were also provided. The conductor was very helpful after Intold her I was to get off a town before the booker destination. She kept us updated and well-informed about our slight change of plan.
