This post related to yet another train derailment in Thailand in 2013, when a number of backpackers were injured travelling from Bangkok to Chaing Mai on a notorious stretch of the track.
Dozens of backpackers and other tourists were injured when a train travelling from Bangkok to Chaing Mai derailed in northern Thailand.
It was the SEVENTH accident in the past four months on the northern track.
The injured tourists came from a wide range of countries including Australia, Germany, France, Spain, Japan, Belgium, Poland, the USA, China, New Zealand and Chile.
Five Thai nationals were also injured.
