Bangkok-Singapore tourist train incident

 

A fire broke out on the locomotive of the Bangkok-Singapore tourist train on Sunday morning. No injuries were reported.

The locomotive of the 17-bogey tourist train caught fire at 8:30 am after leaving Kanchanaburi station.

The Eastern & Oriental Express train service is a luxury tourist train departing from Bangkok for Singapore with a one night stopover at Kanchanaburi. The incident occurred after the train left the Kanchanaburi station, said train driver Phichitsamart Suntranusorn.

Kanchanaburi Provincial Police Superintendent Pol.Col. Pisut Sukrasorn assumes that the fire originated from a fuel leakage from the locomotive, being ignited by a spark from the friction between wheels and the rails.

Another consideration is the old condition of the locomotive, which has been in use for over thirty years. -
