Next passenger train set to run on April 30

Passenger rail services between the capital and the coast will resume on April 30, though neither the schedule nor ticket prices have been finalised, Tith Sam Oeun, commercial manager of Royal Railway, said yesterday.

The resumption of passenger services on the 256-kilometre line from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville follows the successful operation of a nine-day trial run from April 9 to 17 – the first time in 14 years for passengers to travel on the rehabilitated line.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Hun Sen is scheduled to travel from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville by train on April 30, according a Facebook post by Information Minister Khieu Kanharith. No further details were provided.
