    Hey guys,

    I'm planning an island trip to Koh Lanta after Phuket, and then heading back to Bangkok.

    I will need to travel to Trang from Koh Lanta by minivan and train. I will be able to make reservations for the minivan. However, I need to know if train tickets can be purchased at Trang train station the day itself to Bangkok or do I need to buy it through the thai travel agency as suggested by seat61.com.

    Thanks guys! I appreciate any advise.

    We had to get a train from Trang to Bangkok a while ago. We arrived early morning on the boat from Ko Muk and were able to buy tickets at the station for the following evening (they might have been available for that evening as well but we didn't ask). So I can't guarantee they will have them for the day (who can!) but if you're not up against a tight deadline you could risk it - Trang isn't a bad place to spend 24 hours. BTW - we also tried booking in advance by phone but no joy.
