Authorities here in Pattaya and those from the State Railway Association are hailing the new weekend train running between Bangkok and Pattaya as a success following the first weekend of its operation last weekend claiming it to be a massive boom for tourism here in Pattaya.

A meeting party was assembled to greet passengers onboard the first ever air-condition “sprinter” service from Bangkok on Saturday which included city spokesman Pinit Maneerat and an entourage of tourism officials.

It was reported that a singer was also present in the welcoming party to greet passengers.

My mate was talking about that. Not sure I would want to be doing it with a big suitcase though.

I have done the trip from swampy by rail onto the reservation (soi 4)  a few times travelling light. Was painless and quick enough but meh Taxi mostly because it's so kin easy.
