Contrary to an announcement made earlier by governor of the State Railway of Thailand (SRT), train services in the three southernmost provinces failed to resume Sunday.
Not a single train moved in the country’s deep South.
Many passengers showed up at local train stations Sunday only to face disappointment.
The stoppage continued mainly because negotiations between SRT labour union and representatives of the SRT management failed Saturday night.
“Train services have not yet resumed because more than 80 per cent of train drivers feel they are not ready to go back to their work yet,” Wiroon Sakaekhum Sunday said in capacity as the head of Hat Yai branch of SRT labour union.
