Defective Track Blamed for High-Speed Test Train Derailment in Hong Kong
The recent derailment of a train car during a test run of the mainland-Hong Kong high-speed railway was probably caused by a track malfunction, Hong Kong’s rail service provider has said after an initial investigation.
Testing of the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail link began on Sunday. On Tuesday evening, train depot engineers found that the wheels of the test train’s last car had moved off the rails during a trial run earlier that day. No injuries related to the derailment were reported.
