BANGKOK, 10 October 2011 (NNT) – The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) has to cut short its north-bound train service at Bang Pa-In station due to rising water level.
The SRT reported that railway lines serving several northern routes are now 19-64 centimeters under water, making train journeys beyond Pang Pa-In station impossible. Northeast-bound trains have to switch to Chachoengsao-Kaeng Khoi route.
Rising flood water has also forced the Marine Department to temporarily ban water traffic in Ayutthaya province for fear that inundation in residential areas and historical sites would worsen.
