I read that buying tickets online is more expensive than purchasing at the train station. Is this correct?

The best way to plan a cross-country journey in this far away land. Follow their guidance and allow time for delays! I agree with others about service and conditions on the trains.

train #145 2nd Class Fan seats only, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Dec 11, 2019
Nous avons voyagé de Bangkok à Nakon Ratchasima en train (2e classe uniquement) pour expérience. Les trains et le carrosses sont vétustes mais propres, mais ça n'avance pas !! (6 heures de voyage) Le personnel de bord était très professionnel, sympa et poli, les vendeurs de tout genre très folklorique, on c'est bien amusés mais au retour nous avons préféré l'avion ... Dans l'ensemble, le voyage s'est bien passé, je pense que les chemins de fer thaïlandais devraient remplacer les anciens trains par des nouveaux, ils devraient également installer des prises USB pour recharger le matériel électronique.

train #145 2nd Class Fan seats only, Thai Railways (การรถไฟแห่งประเทศไทย), Oct 23, 2019
Travelled from Bangkok to Nakon Ratchasima in 2nd class fan only. The coach pretty old, I had tge window seat, the staff of the train was very professional and polite, always had a smile on his face. The duration of journey was 6hrs and thankfully train was right on time. Overall journey was okay, I think Thai Railways should replace old coaches with new, they should also install mobile charging ports.
