Is it possible to take the train from Korat to Pattaya.
Just asking if somebody did this in the past?
Wanting to try something new: not by car or bus, but by train for a change,.... is it fun or better avoid it?

If you look up this url  "http://www.railway.co.th/main/index_en.html" (I was able to get this from Goggle).

Scroll down to "Timetable & Fares"

This time table cannot make connections (TIT), so make 2 distinct trips, I would check the Bangers to Pattaya first as there seems to be only 2 per day, then match up the Korat to Bangers train that gives you time in between. I have never ridden on the trains here but I would give at least an hour between trains for any delays.

Remember Google can be Ur friend, try goggling "Train delays in Thailand" to give you an idea of how much time to give between the 2 trains.
