We took the train twice going to and from the night market. It was clean, spacious, and fast. The only downside though is they had a few ticket windows and few ticket machines. Do add more ticket machines or ticket windows for efficiency.

This is the cheapest and easiest way to explore the city of Bangkok. Trains were clean and cool. Just take note for the rush hour. Might be full at times.
