    Anyone want to bet how long until the wumaos claim protesters derailed the train?

    Anyway based on the photos i’d suppose the train derailed due to a points failure. The tracks switched while the train was running on it. But that’s just my two cents. Glad no one was hurt.

    That's not going to buff out. Ouch - nasty - glad nobody was killed.

    According to MTR update, East Rail cut back to Mong Kok East at a reduced frequency. 1 in 2 West Rail trains terminate early at Nam Cheong.

    This incident happened at 8:30 am, my train arrived to hung hom station arrived at 8.27 am, just before arriving Hung hom station, one section, the train actually jolted significantly and a few people lost their balance, I suspect that the rail was damaged.

    Bet you also that police as part of the emergency services is helping the injured, also I am a descendant of indigenous HK person but born in UK and lived there for 29 years, I don't understand wumao or any Mandarin, only Cantonese and Hakka, I do understand a 五角 which is not used in HK, but as you're using a Mandarin transliteration, maybe you get links to mainland, do you still Home return pass ( 回嚮證)as well, also I am neutral in all respect, main issue, leave politics out of this incident.

    If there was something on the track then the front of the train would have come off rather than it being disconnected in the middle like it is?

    Problem with the connection between two carriage or as mentioned above if there was a points failure.
