I think he means that the escalators will be switched off after 8pm cause of this city wide campaign to save electricity in the capital.

I got to ride it when I was in Bangkok for a week this summer. Pretty cool system. But it was annoying you couldn't use the same farecard on the skytrain and the subway.

Dozens hurt in Thai subway crash
Sunday, January 16, 2005 Posted: 10:43 PM EST (0343 GMT)

BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) -- Two trains have collided at a subway system in central Bangkok, injuring dozens of passengers, police and media reports said.

TV footage Monday showed some of the victims bleeding as rescue workers carried them up the stairs of the Cultural Center station to ambulances during the morning rush hour.

Other dazed and crying victims walked up the stairs with help.

TV and radio reports said that as many as 100 people were injured in the accident, which occurred when a train preparing to leave the station was rammed by another train from behind.

But police had no injury total of their own.

Trains crash in Bangkok's new subway, 100 injured

BANGKOK : Two trains on Bangkok's five-month-old subway system crashed during the morning rush hour Monday, injuring around 100 people and forcing authorities to suspend services, officials and witnesses said.

"The accident happened around 9:30 am (0230 GMT) when the train headed to Hua Lam Pong left Thailand's cultural center station and was hit from behind by another train that was empty," police Major General Dusitsan Teraphat, deputy metropolitan commissioner, told Thai television.

"Initial reports said almost 100 people were injured. Police and authorities rescued all passengers from the train," Dusitsan said.

The head of Bangkok's subway system, Prapat Chongsanguan, told Thai television that the empty train had just left a maintenance station where it received repairs when it slammed into the crowded rush-hour train carrying some 700 people.

He said officials were investigating the cause of the accident.

Prapat told reporters at the scene that the driver of the empty train had been hospitalized with serious injuries.

One passenger, Wasita Buranasing, told Thai television that she heard a loud sound before the accident.

"Passengers were trapped inside the train for 10 or 15 minutes before the doors opened," she said in an telephone interview on television.

The train was heavily damaged, with broken handrails and debris tossed about, she said.

Television footage show people being carried from the station, some of them visibly bleeding. - AFP

Well, The number of the injurred is now 180 - with 7 still in ICU for amjor operation due to the puverized liver and spleen and head injury


MRTA Governo has a preess conference tellign tthe public that it is the error in coupling fo the train to Huay Kwang Depot. They cannot coule the train sicne it was at the curve ... and the power gap was at that curve .... so the loosening train is running by inertia to SLAM with the passenger trains ... Even worse, they have swited ou the automatic brake ... so the accident is happening ... according to astrologer's prediction of 2005.
