Yikes. A train of Beijing Subway’s Yizhuang Line derailed in the section of Taihu and crashed into a ditch at around 3:00 p.m. yesterday. Fortunately, it was just a trial train, so no passengers were on board.
The Beijing Subway’s official Weibo account confirmed the derailment and said that it wouldn’t disturb running trains on the Yizhuang Line. No casualties have been reported.
In December, a railway engine in Guangxi likewise derailed and rammed into a residential area. While the incident could have ended disastrously, nobody was hurt.
