Two carriages of a new train that has been undergoing testing derailed at Bishan Depot yesterday.

SMRT spokesman Alina Boey said they "slipped off the track" while the train was pulling out of the stabling yard. No passengers were on board and there were no injuries.

The company stressed that the train had not been put into service yet and that normal services were not affected by the incident.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) was informed of the incident at around noon.
