Bang Sue Junction Station Bangkok is a train station in Chatuchack district, around 8km north of Bangkok's main railway station at Hualamphong.
It is a small station that is served by the Northern line, the North-Eastern line and the Southern line and it is also used as a junction for these three lines.
As a consequence most trains leaving from Bangkok to the South, the North or the North-East of the country can be boarded at Bang Sue railway station.
It has 72 tracks but only 4 are linked to the passenger station, 8
other tracks are linked to the near by locomotive depot and the
remaining tracks are railway sidings.
The Phahonyothin freight terminal is located near the station and is the main freight terminal in Thailand.
