Yingluck inspects Chiang Mai-Lampang rail route

Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra Friday rode a special Chiang Mai-Lampang train to inspect the northern railway rote following a repair.

About 200 red shirts waited to provide her moral support when she came to ride the special train at the Chiang Mai railway station.

She travelled with caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi, caretaker Interior Minister Charupong Ruangsuwan, caretaker Transport Minister Chadchart Sittipunt and State Railway of Thailand Governor Prapat Chongsanguan.

The northern route has been closed for repair and the service has just been resumed on December 1.
