The carriages on this train are the best in Thailand as they have only been in operation since the end of 2016 and are amazingly clean compared to the much older rolling stock.
They also offer small luxuries you will not find on the older coaches (such as Wifi, power points).
There is also a restaurant car where you can get evening meals, and breakfast, as well as soft drinks, tea and coffee (no beer or alcohol is now sold, or allowed, on any Thai trains).
If you want to travel on this train, we would advise you to book your berths as far in advance as you can.

If you are in Thailand you can buy your tickets from any SRT railway station ticket office / counter.
