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.
Its now affecting the West Rail as well.
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.

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.
