Trial passenger rail service to begin April 9

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Is it the same train or somewhere else?

Not Cambodia. You will see the railway sleepers are made of wood. The new line PP to Snooky is all concrete sleepers .


Old wooden sleepers

New concrete sleepers,,,, but for where ?

The funding may have been allocated, that doesn't mean it has come through yet. The Toll Railways budget to refurbish the railway was tiny, something like $40 million. The project had quite a few hiccups and Toll pulled out a couple of times. One big issue was all the squatters who had built their shacks along the railway. That delayed things by years.

That's in Thailand, I've seen that market pop up in a lot of videos and documentaries.

Here's the post about it.

Maybe one of our Khmer members could translate for us.

ការធ្វើដំណើរតាមរថភ្លើងទោះបីល្បឿនមិនសូវលឿនបន្តិចមែន តែធានាបាននូវសុវត្ថិភាព ហើយគ្មាន ការកកស្ទះចរាចរណ៌ដូចធ្វើដំណើរតាមរថយន្ត។ ខ្ញុំបានដើរឆ្លងពីទូរថភ្លើងមួយទៅមួយដើម្បីសួរសុខទុក្ខប្រជាពលរដ្ឋរួមទាំងព្រះសង្ឃ លោកយាយលោកតា យុវជន និងក្មួយៗ ចៅៗជាច្រើននាក់ដែលធ្វើដំណើរតាមរថភ្លើងជាមួយខ្ញុំដែរ។ បងប្អូនមានទឹកមុខសប្បាយរីករាយក្នុងការធ្វើដំណើរជាមួយខ្ញុំ។ ខ្ញុំក៏សប្បាយចិត្តដែលបានជួបសំណេះសំណាលជាមួយបងប្អូនដែលមកពីតំបន់ឆ្ងាយៗហើយកំពុងធ្វើដំណើរទៅកាន់តំបន់ទីទៃ ព្រមទាំងបានថតរូប (Selfie)ជាមួយគ្នាទៀតផង។

ពេលរថភ្លើងឈប់ចតនៅតាមស្ថានីយ៍ ខ្ញុំមានឱកាសបានចុះសួរសុខទុក្ខបងប្អូនប្រជាពលរដ្ឋ និងបានស្វែងយល់អំពីការរស់នៅ និងជីវភាពរបស់បងប្អូន។ ទោះបីពេលខ្លះបងប្អូនមិនដែលបានជួបខ្ញុំដោយផ្ទាល់ តែក្នុងចិត្តនិងបេះដូងខ្ញុំគឺស្ថិតនៅជាមួយបងប្អូនជនរួមជាតិជានិច្ច។

ខ្ញុំសូមជូនពរបងប្អូនប្រជាពលរដ្ឋទាំងអស់ដែលកំពុងធ្វើដំណើរតាមរថភ្លើងជាមួយខ្ញុំមានសុខសុវត្ថិភាពក្នុងការធ្វើដំណើរ និងសំណាងល្អគ្រប់គ្នាជានិច្ច៕

From our friend Mr GT. This is so moving, even at 30 kph and just wow that the Holy Spirit has appeared among us. O:-)
Traveling by train, although the speed little bit faster, but ensure the safety and traffic congestion as travel by car. I walked through the carriages from one to greet people, including monks, Grandma, Grandpa, youth and children, many grandchildren who traveled by train with me. You looked happy with me. I am also delighted to have met with those who come from remote areas and are heading to the diversity and photographed (selfie) together.

When being hired at the train station, I had the opportunity to visit people and learn about the lives and the lives of the brothers. Although sometimes you never met me in person, but my mind and heart is always with fellow countrymen.

I wish all the people who were traveling on the train with me safe journey and good luck everyone.
Def take the train UT. Looks really cool. I hope they will keep it running. :thumb:

Lyrics for Cambodia

You know I saw Ms Lao Si down along the tracks

She bought a load of skin whitener so she won't be turning black

Without loi, without loi, where would she be right now?

Well Phnom Penh Central station

And that Southern Shitsville date

Gotta keep on paying Mamasan

Cause you know that is her fate

Without loi...where would you be now?
Jesus loves you...Mexico is great, right? ;)
