Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen with passengers at the Phnom Penh railway station yesterday, as the country's sole passenger train service resumed after a 14-year hiatus.
Mr Hun Sen boarded the train to inaugurate its first trip to a seaport in Sihanoukville. The 270-km-long route passes through farmland and follows part of Cambodia's scenic coast.
Trains will now run once a day in either direction from Friday to Sunday.
The South-east nation has more than 600km of railroad, but much of its tracks have been damaged over time.
