Train service to and from Trang province resumed on Friday morning, a day after a 14-car train’s trailing carriage went off the tracks.
The partial derailment occurred in Bang Wang Trae (Moo 7), Tambon Na Tuam Nua in Muang Trang, at a curve in the tracks where a bridge is being built.
The incident halted the train 50 metres from the bridge and seven kilometres from Trang station.
Passengers aboard two Bangkok-bound trains had to be transported by bus to another train at Thungsong station in Nakhon Si Thammarat.
The State Railway of Thailand announced that the tracks had been repaired and normal service could resume.
