Nong Khai railway station is located 623.58 km from Bangkok Railway Station and 1.5km from the border with the Laos. It’s the terminus of the northeastern railway line from Bangkok, via Khon Kaen and Udon Thani. The first Nong Khai station, now renamed Na Tha opened in 1955 before a new station, located at the actual station opened in 1958.
The present-day Nong Khai station opened in May 2000. In March 2009, the Northeastern Line extended to Thanaleng Railway Station in Laos across the Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge, and international services between the present-day Nong Khai station and Thanaleng began. Shuttle services operate onward from Nong Khai to Tha Nalaeng, Laos (near Vientiane) four times a day.

A very short video: the train is moving on the track located on the left of the photo, the closest one to the man using the garden hose to take a shower.
Arrival at the Railway Station
This is an amateur and a little bit shaky video but it gives a fair idea of Thai train and Nong Khai station. Train can be extremely cheap in Thailand but don’t ask for speed and punctuality!
