Recommended Posts

Ya can’t make up this stuff. 

 

I don’t care how broke u are, common sense and decency shld prevail. 
Obviously these people that committed this crime have neither of those or money. 
Losers.

i hope they are prosecuted heavier than petty theft!!

And the scrap dealer didn't have a clue where the items came from...😏

no doubt a common occurance, and it took only a little time for a simple deduction:

as to 'which' incident they came from?

Unbelievable (a word I seem to be using a lot these days!). I hope that the high speed train tracks will be more secure!

Hope ???,...You should know better.

Police received a tip-off from a metal scrapping yard, which bought 66 screws and 20 metal plates that are used to hold rails in place, from Sompong and the second suspect.

I bet he tipped them off. I would suggest the "tip off" came during a police interview where he was explaining to the local police where the railway items he had in his possession had come from.

Hope they find the folks who stole the parts and give em heavy jail time and make them work every day repairing tracks in shame producing pink overalls so everyone knows who they are. And! Advertise n post photos of em doing so for all to see.

Apparently he was the foreman for a group of guys who were tasked with dismantling and removing an old cast iron footbridge, however he got them to "remove" it to a scrapyard rather than to where he ought to have done. Later on somebody noticed it wasn't where it should have been. I guess they didn't 'cover their tracks' well enough.

It looks to me as if the Guy that nicked the Chair Plate Screws has done everybody a huge favour.

Most of them seem from the Photos, to be damaged and are were in dire need of replacement before failure.

This guy should work for the Railway Company as a preventative Maintenance Engineer.

Thank God nobody was killed due to his activities.

I'm surprised the Thai idiot didn't take the metal from the tunnel or a bridge.  Isn't it amazing, the level of stupidity of some of these people?  You cannot convince me that inside that 54 year-old head, that there is a working brain.

You're obviously in the know about this - I have no idea.

 

If they are in need of replacement, how can we be sure the SRT will fit new ones, rather than reuse the discovered old ones?

You cannot.  Why do you think the Thais team up with foreign engineering firms to build the BTS extensions?  They're incapable of doing it themselves.

Agreed.  As far as good Thailand railway stories go this one is right up there with the derailment a few years ago that apparently occurred when the train was stationary.
