All coaches are air-conditioned and you get a small meal and soft drinks served to you during the journey by the steward or stewardess on each carriage.
Unlike most other trains in Thailand, you do not get all the hawkers coming on selling food and drink, so it is advisable to take some of you own supplies for the journey.
These sprinter train services are one of the most expensive trains in Thailand, as they are the fastest.
Additional fees are added per journey and not for distance travelled, so for short distances these trains are quite expensive and you would be better off taking a slower Rapid train service.
