RATCHABURI – Two Japanese tourists were slight injured when a luxury sleeper train derailed in Ban Pong district of Ratchaburi Sunday morning.

Ban Pong district police said the accident which involved the Eastern and Oriental Express train from Singapore through Kuala Lumpur, Butterworth and Bangkok took place shortly before 10.30 am as the training was heading for Sai Yoke district of Kanchanaburi.

The locomotive and seven of 18 cars jumped the tracks at Tambon Tha Pha because the tracks split up due to land subsidence and broken sleepers following heavy rains the night before.

The train service from Ban Pong to the Nam Tok station in Sai Yoke district was temporarily suspended pending maintenance.
