A new elevated station will soon to be built a few hundred metres south of the Royal Hua Hin Golf Course clubhouse with the historic Hua Hin Railway Station and pavilion remaining undisturbed to become a museum.
The old main platform will still be operational for special tour trains and important occasions. The classic No.305 steam locomotive will be returned from its current temporary position to be part of a redeveloped precinct to include the original station buildings, access roundabout, train library, shrines and royal monuments.
There has been local speculation that the new station may be located somewhat further south and connected to the Blúport Resort Mall. A spokesperson for the project, Dr. Sirinthron Phuchinda, responded to this suggestion stating: “It (the station) remains in the same place, but it is opposite the old station. So Hua Hin Railway station cannot connect to Blúport Shopping Mall.”
