Thursday evening’s Trang-Bangkok passenger train had to abandon its service and return to the station because the track was flooded in Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Officials said the train, which left the Trang railway station in Mueang district at 5.20pm, returned to the station at 9.15 pm after it found it could not continue after reaching the Huay Yod station in Nakhon Si Thammarat’s Huay Yod district.

Officials said that a section of the railway ahead was underwater and so it was decided to abort the service and return to the Trang station.

The train was full with passengers, including foreign tourists.

The Trang station allowed those passengers, who could not return home or stay in hotels, to remain on the train for the night.

The Trang-Bangkok train service is suspended indefinitely pending further notice.
