Passengers on board one of the North East Line MRT trains were trapped for 15 minutes last night when their train started “smoking” in the middle of their journey.
According to eye witnesses, the train started to emit thick plumes of smoke as it approached Woodleigh Station. Some passengers had already suspected something was amiss when they detected a thick burning smell along the way to the station.
Upon reaching the station, the doors of the train would not open. After waiting for 15 minutes with no signs of a solution from MRT staff, commuters ended up prying open the doors themselves and exited the station.
