A seven-car freight train traveling from Sungai Kolok to Bangkok went off the rails on Saturday morning, February 4th. Luckily, nobody was injured.
The train, No. 986, derailed about 200 meters ahead of the Bang Saphan Yai station. The derailment took place around 6:35 AM near kilometer marker 377/3 in Prachuap Khiri Khan. No injuries were reported.
