Now, AI Astrologers [Axxhologers] are tellign that the name of Subway company (BMCL) is so inauspecious that they are required to change the name to prevent further bad lucks ....

However, I think the series of bad lucks are jsut a Karmic retribution form the heaven

Now, Bangkok Bizweek (Weekly version of Bangkok Biznews -> Feb 25 - March 3, 2005) has found the causes of the subway malfunctions:

1) The Subway system has been Designed Exclusively for Alstom-Mitsubishi subway rolling stocks .... NOT for the rolling stocks from the Other companies ....

2) Subway Rolling stocks of Siemens were produced from Austrian Assembly l;ine wihich may not so good as German assembly line ....

Thai Government Scraps Plan to Buy Mass Transit Firms - Report

THAI PRESS: Govt Scraps Plan To Buy Mass-Transit Firms
4 May 2005

BANGKOK (Dow Jones)--The Thai government has scrapped plans to take over the operations of Bangkok's skytrain, which is currently run by Bangkok Mass Transit System PCL, or BTS, and the underground metro line, which is operated by Bangkok Metro Ltd., or BMCL, after the negotiations failed many times, the Post Today reports, citing Utid Tamvatin, head of the negotiation team, and Excise Department Director-General.

The government had planned to buy out the operations of Bangkok's skytrain and subway from the private companies to integrate the city's mass transit systems.

The report cited Utid as saying that the negotiations failed because the operators didn't want to sell their shares to the government,

A financial source cited in the report, however, said the plan's failure was mainly due to the government's attempt to buy the stakes of both companies at par value, which was considered too low.

Thai Govt To Buy 25% Stake In Bangkok Metro For THB2.45B
31 May 2005

BANGKOK (Dow Jones)--The Thai Cabinet Tuesday gave approval for the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand to invest THB2.45 billion to buy 2.45 billion new shares, or a 25% stake, in Bangkok Metro Ltd., a private subway operator, government spokesman Chalermdej Jombunud said.

The cabinet has also allowed the MRTA to borrow THB2.45 billion from local financial institutions to finance the acquisition, he told reporters after a weekly cabinet meeting.

The purchase is part of a previous agreement between MRTA and Bangkok Metro when the concession for the subway was awarded.

The government had planned to buy out the operations of Bangkok's skytrain and subway from private companies to integrate the city's mass transit systems.

However, the negotiations have stalled so far because the operators cannot agree with the government on the price.

I like how transits now-a-days have these 'glass' entrance. Very nice, places like Spain and the new entrance/exit in Hong Kong are really nice.

Manager - August 3, 2005

Premier Thaksin has invited the outgoing German Ambassador (Herrn. Fon Steschow)
to talk with him abotu the monorail projects after installign the system for Chian and Malaysia.
This Monrail can constructed faster than BTS Skytrain at cheaper prices....

The outgoign Germanambassador told Premeir Thaksin that Germany has the best monorail
systme in the world which has been installed to Shanghai (China) and KL (Malaysia).
He'll dohisbest to get the goverment conenction in Berlin

Note: The Monrail isntaled in Shanghai isactually MAGLEV while the KL Monorail has been done mymalay Firm ... It seemsto me that our Leader has already messed up and mixed up.

Note2: It might be the Faults fo the Manager Correspondents who have mixed Shanghai Metroand KLIA Express (both done by Siemens) ....
