Airport rail MAP could help travelers

Airport rail MAP could help travelers

Postby chasgribbs on Tue Dec 14, 2010 10:37 pm

Nowhere do I, can I find a context map that shows the exact route of the new airport link and the exact location of the half dozen or so stops used by the city train service to and from the airport. Google maps has yet to come up with this info. Any other sources??

The stations ARE marked on Google Maps but the icon is the same as regular railway station and you can see the station names at higher magnification though not marked as 'airport link'.
You can see the stations and the elevated rail clearly in satellite image mode if you zoom in close enough.
Practically, the City Line runs on top of the ground 'Eastern Rail Line' starting at PhayaThai BTS station and follow it down Makkasan then Petchburi Road toward HW 7/31 Chonburi New Line motor way.

Don't bother with their 'map' page for reference (http://airportraillink.railway.co.th/en ... 1_map.html)
The dweebs got some of the landmark completely backwards @! :roll:

:cheers:

<update>
So, now it's 2 weeks later and they had "fixed" the maps on the page I mentioned above.
The locations are now correct and marked as 'airport link' in English on the new set of maps.
But the rest of the landmarks, streets, and station names are all in Thai.....
:lol:
