PHNOM PENH， Dec. 30 (Xinhua) -- Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni， accompanied by Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen， travelled by train for the first time from the capital city of Phnom Penh to southwestern Sihanoukville coast on Friday morning.
The king's trip was to view the railway which was constructed in the 1960s by his father， late King Norodom Sihanouk， said Transport Minister Sun Chanthol.
"The railway was built under the regime of King Father Norodom Sihanouk， so Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen wanted His Majesty the King to travel by train in order to see the achievement made by his father，" he said.
Sihamoni's trip is also seen as an effort to increase the allure of train travel in the country.
"Traveling by train is a bit slower than travelling by car， but relaxed and safe，" Chanthol said， adding that the full journey may take about seven hours.
Cambodia's passenger train services resumed regular weekend operations on the 266-km track between Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville in late April after a 14-year hiatus.
The wagons can accommodate over 200 passengers， and the one-way ticket price is 6 U.S. dollars.
Cambodia has two lines of railroads. One southern line connects Phnom Penh to the seaport of Sihanoukville， and the other line in the north stretches from Phnom Penh to Poipet City and to Thailand with a distance of 385 kilometers.
The two lines， which had been built between 1929 and 1969， were damaged during decades of civil war.
In 2009， the Asian Development Bank and development partners provided a total of 141 million dollars to the country for the rehabilitation of the two rail networks.

SYDNEY, July 24 (Xinhua) -- Australian car manufacturers have been caught replacing faulty airbags with ones they knew to still be faulty on Monday, as one of the biggest recall sagas in Australian history continues for embattled Japanese manufacturer Takata.
An investigation by consumer watchdog group Choice has discovered that at least five car makers in Australia who were affected by the recall, replaced the airbags with ones that they knew were also susceptible to shoot shrapnel at passengers Cheap Adidas NMD R1 x Thrasher PK Black Red , while manufacturers such as Nissan and Honda refused to share details with the advocacy group.
"Although Toyota, Mazda, BMW, Lexus and Subaru admitted to Choice they made identical replacements Cheap Adidas NMD R1 Mesh White , perhaps more worrying are the other manufacturers who continue to refuse to share this information with the public," Choice spokesman Tom Godfrey said.
More than 2.3 million cars have been affected by the recall in Australia since 2009, and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) chairman, Rod Sims Cheap Adidas NMD R1 W Collegiate Navy White , said in a statement obtained by Xinhua on Monday that despite the recent concerns, he urges all Australians to check if their car is affected by the recall.
"Do not ignore or delay responding to a letter from your car's manufacturer or retailer asking you to have your car's airbag replaced. The airbags degrade over time and can become lethal by mis-deploying and firing metal shards at the car's occupants," Sims said.
Sims said he intends to discover what information is being given to consumers - especially in relation to the need to replace their airbags for a second time.
"We would have very serious concerns if manufacturers were found to be misleading consumers about their car's safety in breach of their obligations under consumer law," Sims said.
"If consumers have already had their airbag replaced cheap adidas alphabounce , they should contact their manufacturer for advice as to what kind of airbag it was replaced with and how long it is expected to last."
This new focus comes as police attributed the death of a 58-year-old man on Friday with a faulty airbag in his Honda CRV, which was involved in a crash in the Sydney suburb of Cabramatta.
