In Thailand, banned alcohol on trains
Railways of Thailand banned the sale and consumption of alcohol at stations and on trains. This order came into force on July 11, reports sob.korr. Travel.ru.

The reason was the murder allegedly committed by drunken railroad employee in the night train a few days earlier. The incident also led to the dismissal of the chief of Thailand's railways. It is not clear whether any sanctions threaten tourists if they will use the train or at the station alcohol, bought earlier in the city.

In addition, the railroad promised to tighten security measures and put in two weeks recumbent cars only for women in all night trains. They will also be allowed minor children of either sex. Similar cars already existed in 2001 in one of the trains, but were quickly canceled due to low popularity.
