Bang Sue Junction (Thai: สถานีรถไฟชุมทางบางซื่อ), is a railway station and junction located in Bangkok. It is situated on Thoet Damri Road, Chatuchak District. It is owned by the State Railway of Thailand, serves the Northern, Northeastern and Southern Line and is a junction for the North/Northeast and South Lines.
Bang Sue Junction is separated into 2 station buildings, one (the older) for the North and Northeast lines and another (newer) for the Southern Line. The distance between the buildings are about 200 metres apart, with an overpass that links and used when a train is currently parked at the platform. This station has 72 tracks, 4 of which are linked with the platform. 8 tracks are linked to the locomotive depot and the remaining 60 are rail sidings.
Phahonyothin Freight Yard
Bang Sue Junction is also the location of Phahonyothin Cargo Yard. With an expanse to about 50 rails, it is the largest rail yard, in the whole of Thailand. It is located about 1.5 kilometres from the station and is the main cargo yard for freight services around Thailand.
The State Railway of Thailand and the Ministry of Transportation have decided to build a large main station here and move all train destinations for Bangkok (Hua Lamphong) Railway Station to end here instead. In addition to adding a few commuter services, the high-speed rail and Suvarnabhumi Airport Link will also be available for service and use. Currently the construction of the new station has started as ground work is under way.
