Battambang to Phnom Penh by train

Trains ceased running on the train line from Battambang to Phnom Penh in 2009. The condition of the track, constructed on the 1930s, hasd become continuously worse each year since the suspension of the Bangkok to Phnom Penh train service in 1946. However, there is no light at the end of the tunnel for the train track from Battambang to Phnom Penh as the existing track is being ‘rehabilitated’ as Thailand and Cambodia have started working more closely together, with Thailand providing funding and rolling stock to Cambodia in effort to restart train connections between the two capital cities of Bangkok and Phnom Penh. There is no firm date for when the Battambang to Phnom Penh train line will reopen and until then the only pub transport option available is a bus or minivan from Battambang to Phnom Penh.
