    First train on the newly repaired line.. Derails !!

    Train derails near Lamphun station

    BANGKOK: -- The first official train leaving for the north from Bangkok to test the finished northern rail line derailed near Lamphun railway station this morning.

    The train carried top executives of the State Railway of Thailand who included the governor Prapat Chongsa-nguan.

    It was not immediately known what caused the derailment of the last bogie of the train but there was no injury.

    The train was launched from Hua Lampong to Chiang Mai to test the safety of the train service on this northern route after it was closed for maintenance and repair for over two months.

    It started the commemorative trip this morning on the way to Chiang Mai.

    The governor has earlier said he would resign if there was another derailment on the route which was maintained and repaired.

    Well at least they tested it first, before allowing passenger trains to run again

    This is such a great way to get from Bangkok to Chiang Mai, especially with loads of luggage, real shame they can't get it right.
