The cheapest and most colourful way of reaching Ayutthaya is by train. All north and north-east line trains depart from Bangkok's Hua Lamphong Train Station and stop in Ayutthaya, a trip of about 1 ½  hours - 2 ½  hrs depending on the type of train service. According to the State Railway of Thailand web site, First Class costs 66 Baht, Second class ( non-air con ) costs 35 Baht ( seats can be booked in advance ), while third class is just 15 Baht ( no reservations ). You can check all the fares in the web site. Trains pass by the province’s Amphoe Bang Pa-in, Amphoe Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya and Amphoe Phachi, where at Ban Phachi Junction the railway lines separate to the North and Northeast. Then, mini-buses can be taken from the railway station into the city. See Thailand  State Railway for schedule and cost.

In addition, a Bangkok – Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya train pulled by a steam locomotive is usually provided by the State Railway of Thailand on three special occasions every year. The first one is on 26 March which marks the establishment of the State Railway of Thailand and the inauguration day of Thailand’s first railway line between Bangkok – Nakhon Ratchasima in 1890. The second, 12th August - the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Regent Sirikit. Third, 23 October – the memorial day of King Rama V, founder of the Thai railways.
