NE-bound train services resume as normal

All northeastern-bound trains resume service as normal as of Tuesday evening after railway workers have fixed the damaged rail tracks in the municipal area of Nakhon Ratchasima.

Train services to northeastern provinces were suspended as of Monday night after 20 carriages loaded with cement from TPI Polene Company derailed at a railway crossing in Nakhon Ratchasima municipality.

A mobile huge crane was transported in a train from Bangkok to the site of the accident to lift the derailed carriages out of the rail tracks.

Railway officials said most of the derailed carriages except six had been removed with the rest pending investigation by officials from TPI Polene Company.

The State Railway of Thailand has set up a fact-finding panel to investigate the cause of the accident.
