Train derails at Bang Sue

A Yala-Bangkok express train derailed in Bang Sue district on Thursday afternoon but no one was injured.

The Bangkok-bound locomotive of the No.170 train jumped the track near Bang Sue train station at about 3pm and was left leaning at a 45-degree angle. 

State Railway of Thailand officials were able to lift the derailed train back on to the track at about 7.40pm and were inspecting it further to ensure it was still safe to use, SRT public communications staff said. 

The mishap occurred on a double-track section so it did not impede other Bangkok-bound trains other than to cause delays because of switching, officials said.
