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.
See the trailer for our new film, M.I.A. A Greater Evil. Set in the jungles of Laos and Vietnam, the film deals with the possible fate of US servicemen left behind after the US pulled out of the Vietnam War.
