The proposed route linking the existing Poipet to Phnom Penh railway to the Vietnam border is likely to be the first to be constructed, because it will form part of thePan Asian Railway Network and is therefore more likely to attract funding from the Chinese Government which is sponsoring much of the overall project.

Construction on the other two proposed routes, one linking Siem Reap (for Angkor Wat) with Thailand and Phnom Penh, and the other linking Laos and Phnom Penh, are likely to start less quickly as funding will be more difficult to secure.
Phnom Penh to Bangkok
The train line linking Bangkok to Phnom Penh is now fully operational. Services are likely to commence sometime in 2019 if an agreement on the operation of cross border train services can be made between Thailand and Cambodia, and Cambodia’s Royal Railways can complete its work rebuilding bridges and embankments on the Phnom Penh to Poipet railway line.
