Accra-Nsawam train on test run derails

An Accra-Nsawam passenger train on test run has derailed.

The train derailed at Chinto, just a few meters from Nsawam, our reporter said.

After evacuating the passengers, engineers managed to decouple four coaches to ease the train to its destination.

Operations of the train were suspended in October 2018 for works on the railway.

The Ghana Railway Company on Thursday embarked on a sensitisation test run from Accra to Nsawam.

But after almost making it through the journey, the train derailed, causing panic among passengers.
