Driver suspended after Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad derails

Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad

Hong Kong Disneyland has reportedly suspended a driver on the Disneyland Railroad attraction after one its trains left the tracks.

The Standard reports that train derailed while returning to a depot. It was not in service at the time and no guests or staff were injured in the incident. An investigation by park officials is currently underway.

According to the report, the derailment was caused by the driver failing to allow enough space for the train to switch from one line to another. This caused the six front wheels to leave the tracks.

Hong Kong Disneyland's Railroad is similar to those at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom in the US. It runs around the outside of the park, taking guests on a leisurely journey between its different lands. In an unusual move for a Disney Park, three new lands are set to be located outside the Disneyland Railroad's tracks when they open as part of an expansion in 2012 and 2013.

There are no comments so far.
