NAKHON SI THAMMARAT 7 October (NNT) – Bangkok-bound passengers experienced a tense moment on Saturday as a passenger train derailed in Nakhon Si Thammarat.

The train carrying more than 200 passengers lost its control, causing nine of the twelve carriages to detach. No casualties were reported.

A passenger said the nine carriages got off the track and by chance leaned to one side, sparing the passengers injuries. She added that there could have been a tragedy if the carriages had turned upside down.

Police inspected the scene and found that the worn-out tracks were the cause of the accident. Repair work could take up to a week. The line will be impassible for trains operating three routes: Nakhon Si Thammarat – Sungai Kolok, Nakhon Si Thammarat – Pattalung and Nakhon Si Thammarat – Yala.
