One Response to Remembering the Thaksin Years: Trying to avoid a crash

  1. Wiz says:

    On the station: Justice Station -> Ministry of Justice
    Left train with the face -> Purachai Piamsomboon when he was minister of Justice who is so straightforward that the crash with bureaucrats is bound to happen as you can see here and Ai Maew is trying to switch the track despite of the fact that this station has no passing loop.
