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.

And we especially should not tell anyone where the ''ticket office '' is , or even the internet site or phone number so one can book a ticket in advance.

From what I saw about two or three days before HE turned up was a lot of the shite had been cleared from around the station, including some more of the shacks, so the entry to the station is fairly obvious now. Still no big sign, though. But yeah, it's right by the port, although I wouldn't call that central. Route 4 into SHV, on the right just before the port entrance.

Oh yeah, the guys from Sokimex told me that you will be able to take your car for ten dollars. Presumably there's facilities for this as they can get containers on and off, maybe they hoist it onto the flatbed.

I didn't get a price for that, they were more enthusiastic about the car thing. If KM pulls his finger out of his arse and hooks up his low loaders he'll make more money, I think at $7 a ticket you need to add some more options for it to make some decent dosh. Like somewhere to drink beers and smoke fags.

Great pics! Can you stay in your car, or you gotta buy tickets for yourself too?
