Video: Raining INSIDE the BTS - what's that all about, asks Thai media

Picture: Thai Rath

 

Thai Rath asked why it would be raining inside a crowded BTS train this morning?

 

Footage uploaded to Facebook showed a crowd of nervous looking Thais and foreigners huddling away from the falling rain inside the carriage as the lights ominously flickered on and off.

 

No answer to their question was yet apparent.

 

Poster Suphanut Siriudomdejkul said it happened during a deluge outside.

Funny people these commuters. They were okay sitting right next to an arse-biscuit in the BTS the other day. But, here they are feeling squeamish around a bit of pure rainwater.

Train built in ...

 

You get what you pay for.

 

Does that include preventative maintenance, or just Thai style maintenance: repair when broken.

I thought maybe the Weather Girls were visiting and it was Raining Men?

 

my laughing emoticon was for the ten minutes comment...just to clarify ?

My guess is that the problem was with a newer Chinese made train . This happened once before

Ah, Chinese water torture. Drowning from above, a retaliatory move to get even for the Pheonix deaths.

This can be for a number of reasons and having worked as a driver on the railway in UK, have come across this on new and older trains before.

It could be a seal that has broken on the roof panels therefore allowing an egress of water. This used to happen on the older trains used around London

It can also be through the A/C units where there has been a lack of maintainance. There is a tray, normally, for the water that forms when the unit is operating and this should be drained off via rubber piping.  Get a blockage in the pipe and this water will overflow into the carriage.  Had this occur on brand new Hitachi trains built for the High Speed service in Kent in driver's cab and in a couple of coaches.

 

Having looked closer at the video, that looks like it is by the gangway of 2 coaches and the rubber cushions could be where the problem is allowing water into the gap between the roof and the coach ceiling.

'Oh ye of little faith'

 

This is clearly an evaporative cooling system whereby water is injected into the carriage interior and evaporates effectively cooling the air and the passengers........?

You're spoiling the thread with your common sense input ?
