(2.7/5 based on 70 reviews on the web)
Phnom Penh Royal Railway Station, is a railway station in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It is located next University of Health Science and the National University of Management and the Canadian embassy. As of February 2014, the station is only used for sporadic goods transport, chiefly oil-tank trains. This station was renovated and formally reopened October 22, 2010. However, the station buildings and platforms are no longer accessible to the public, given that there are currently no passenger services.ConstructionThe station was built in 1932 from reinforced concrete to service the railway to Battambang.HistoryOn September 28-September 30, 1960, twenty-one leaders of the Kampuchean People's Revolutionary Party (KPRP) held a secret congress at the station. The meeting resulted in the party being renamed as the Workers Party of Kampuchea (WPK). In Democratic Kampuchea, this pivotal meeting would later be projected as the founding date of the party. The first important meeting of the Khmer Rouge leadership including Pol Pot was held at the railway station in April 1975, following the fall of Phnom Penh at which the decision to evacuate the cities was taken.
