Yommarat railway halt

(Redirected from Yommarat Railway Halt)

Yommarat railway halt (Thai: ที่หยุดรถไฟยมราช) is a railway halt in Bangkok. It is owned and operated by State Railway of Thailand and serves the Northern, Northeastern and Southern Line. It is on Sawankhalok Road in Thung Phaya Thai, Ratchathewi District, Bangkok, to the north of Yommarat level-crossing. The trains that stop at this station are only commuter services and some ordinary services. Not very far from the halt is Uruphong Halt which is a separate halt for the Eastern Line. Yommarat was refurbished since 2017 and was used as an access point for railway passengers to the Royal Crematorium during the death and funeral of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
