Spain Experiences its Worst Train Accident in 40 Years

An increase in train derailments was one of the first symptoms of the approach of Planet X to become noticeable, being expressed even before Planet X entered the inner solar system in 2003.

Planet X was described as affecting the Earth from afar, like tugging on the edge of a spider web where the effects are felt elsewhere on the web; in this way there has been an increase in earthquakes and unpredictable weather going back years, even before Planet X entered the solar system, due to the increased swirling of the Earth’s core.

It is therefore logical that an increase in train derailments would accompany any increase in seismic activity – train tracks need to be straight and even the slightest shift to the side of a section of track would cause a train to derail.

The area most affected by train derailments is the stretch zone.  Stretch zone quakes are silent, and people are generally unaware anything is happening, although signs such as booms and trumpet sounds can occur.

This zone stretches from Western Europe across the Eurasian Plate, and also includes the South-East United States, the St. Lawrence Seaway, the Red Sea and the African Rift.

In other parts of the world, shifting ground is more associated with earthquakes that people are aware of, such as the Pacific which is compressing, so authorities inspect railway tracks after any seismic activity, reducing the likelihood of accidents.

Chaos on the Trans-Siberian Railway as Russian coal train derails tearing up 1,000ft-stretch of track and blocking the famous route beloved by tourists

  • Twenty-nine carriages derailed in the Irkutsk region close to Lake Baikal today
  • Overhead power lines were torn down and some 1,000ft of track was damaged
  • Emergency trains were sent to scene bringing workers to clear the spilled coal 

Part of the world's longest railway was blocked today after 29 carriages of a coal cargo train fell off the tracks, causing delays of up to eight hours. 

A section of the famous Trans-Siberian line was blocked after the derailment on the Delyur-Tyret section of the East Siberian Railway, some 2,918 miles east of Moscow.  

There wasn't any reports of injuries, but overhead power lines were torn down and some 1,000ft of track was damaged in both east and west directions, say reports.

Pictures showed the derailed cargo carriages blocking the famous railway in the Irkutsk region close to the Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world. 

Emergency trains were sent to the scene bringing workers to clear the track and restore broken overhead power cables.

The incident was today delaying trains on the seven-day long Moscow to Vladivostok route across Russia, a favourite of tourists.

Trains from Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar to Moscow were hit by the delays too.

'Train movements in both directions on the Trans-Siberian railway were blocked in the aftermath of the accident,' reported The Siberian Times.

Two major passenger services were delayed up to eight hours, said Arkady Petshik, chief of corporate communications for East Siberian Railway.

Staff 'are doing everything in our power to fix the damage as soon as possible and restore the normal train timetable'.

The most serious delays are on a service from Ulaanbaatar to Moscow, and another from Moscow to Vladivostok

The cause of the incident is being investigated.

A railway source said: 'Twenty nine carriages containing coal derailed on the Delyur-Tyret' section of the East Siberian Railway [part of the Trans-Siberian Railway] in Zalarinsky District [of Irkutsk Region] … The traffic in both directions is blocked.'

Freight train derails into backyard, narrowly missing house

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5fUt_uoUkM

A freight train flew off the rails in the center of a small North Texas town Wednesday morning, smashing into a resident's backyard and just narrowly missing his house, reports said.

Seven of the Union Pacific cargo train's 13 empty rail cars overturned in Aubrey, about 50 miles north of Dallas, Fox 4 Dallas reported. The locomotive remained upright.

The train derailed into Rick Huckabee's yard, where it knocked down a tree that fell and damaged a portion of his roof, Fox 4 reported.

“I just called my wife and told her we had a train in the backyard,” he told the station. “We’re fortunate. It didn’t really tear up anything we can’t fix, except for that tree."

“I just called my wife and told her we had a train in the backyard. We’re fortunate. It didn’t really tear up anything we can’t fix, except for that tree."

City Administrator Mark Kaiser said there were no injuries or damage to any structures, but an empty freight car punched through a resident’s backyard fence by about 4 feet.

Union Pacific officials don’t know yet what caused the derailment, which closed the rail line between Fort Worth and McAlester, Oklahoma, until Thursday.

Turkey train crash: At least nine dead in Ankara

  • 13 December 2018

A crash involving a high-speed train at a station in the Turkish capital Ankara has killed at least nine people and injured 47, Turkey's transport minister has said.

Images from the scene showed emergency services working to rescue people from badly damaged carriages.

Reports quoting local officials said the high-speed train had collided with another train, then an overpass.

The accident occurred at about 06:30 local time (03:30 GMT).

The crash happened at the Marsandiz railway station, around 8km (5 miles) from Ankara's main station.

At a news conference, Ankara governor Vasip Sahin said the train was travelling from Ankara to the southern city of Konya when it collided with a locomotive inspecting tracks at the station.

Three train drivers were among nine people killed in the crash, according to Turkish Transport Minister Cahit Turhan.

Turkey's state-funded Anadolu Agency reports that 206 passengers were on board the train. Three of the injured are said to be in a serious condition.

A large number of emergency workers arrived at the scene shortly after the collision, which occurred in snowy conditions.

Search and rescue efforts are still under way. The Ankara state prosecutor's office says it has launched an official investigation into the cause of the crash.

In a tweet (in Turkish), the Union of Chambers of Turkish Engineers and Architects quoted it.... It added: "The accident is murder!"

In July, 24 people were killed in Turkey when a train travelling from the north-western town of Kapikule en route to Istanbul derailed.

Cleanup continues after Beaufort County train derailment

BLOUNTS CREEK, NC (WITN) - Railroad officials say they expect track repairs to be completed later today from that New Year's Day train derailment in Beaufort County.

Norfolk Southern says 12 tanker cars carrying molten sulfur derailed from a 97-car CSX train around 1:50 a.m. Tuesday.

The CSX train was operating on Norfolk Southern tracks and was headed to the phosphate mine in Aurora.

Crews have so far been able to re-rail five of the tankers and moved them, while seven cars remain at the site near Stilley Station Road in Blounts Creek.

Norfolk Southern says between 6,000 and 8,000 gallons of the molten sulfur escaped from the tankers. The sulfur is transported as a liquid, but cools rapidly and solidifies, according to the railroad.

The hardened sulfur will be removed and replaced with new soil, Norfolk Southern told WITN News.

The cause of the derailment remains under investigation, while Stilley Station Road should reopen later today.

First responders in Beaufort County are on the scene of a train derailment in the Blounts Creek community

Beaufort County Fire Marshal Curtis Avery says a CSX train carrying molten sulfur derailed around 1:50 am.

Blounts Creek Fire Chief David Williams says eleven tanker cars derailed and Stilley Station Rd. is shut down near the intersection with Highway 33.

Norfolk Southern Railroad, which owns the tracks, is bringing in a contractor with heavy equipment to remove the tankers.

The train was bound for Nutrien Aurora Phosphate in Aurora, formerly known as PCS Phosphate.

Avery says there was a slight fire initially that has since been contained by several responding agencies.

Beaufort County Emergency Management, North Carolina Emergency Management, the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office, Highway Patrol, a hazmat team from Williamston Fire-Rescue-EMS and Chocowinity EMS all responded.

No injuries have been reported. Avery says there is no threat to the community.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation.

6 killed, 16 injured in train accident on Danish bridge

Posted: 5:50 AM, Jan 02, 2019
Updated: 6:50 AM, Jan 02, 2019

Six people were killed and 16 injured in an accident Wednesday morning involving a commuter train on the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark, Danish police said.

The accident took place around 7:35 a.m. local time. The area was experiencing high winds and powerful waves caused by Storm Alfrida.

The accident, which involved two trains, occurred on a bridge linking the Danish islands of Zealand and Funen, a Danish police spokeswoman said. Police were first called at 7:35 a.m. (1:35 am ET), she said.

Passengers have been evacuated from the train but police and rescue teams are still working at the scene.

A spokesman for brewing company Carlsberg told CNN that Carlsberg beer was being transported on a freight train over the bridge. "The train was carrying our goods apparently, but we do not transport our own goods in Denmark," said Kasper Elbjorn from Carlsberg, which has its headquarters in Copenhagen. The beer was carried by Deutsche Bahn Cargo Scandinavia, he said.

No cause for the accident has been established yet by police but the two trains may have had contact, the police spokeswoman said.

Danish police cannot yet confirm the number of dead, nor who the victims are, the spokeswoman said. All possible causes are being investigated.

Passenger Jim Nielson, who is from Denmark but lives in Ireland, told CNN he was going to the airport to catch a flight back after the holidays when the incident occurred.

"I was on the second coach when the crash happened. There was a cargo train coming from Zealand, the opposite direction. It was shaking due to the strong wind," he said.

"One of the containers was blown off the cargo train into the rails, because of the wind. Our driver tried to stop the train, pulling the brake. But the train continued to drive a bit, and crashed into the container blown off from the cargo.

"I saw sparks coming from the wheels. I ducked and bumped my head. Ten seconds later I heard a sudden bang. Then the train came into a halt. There was a lot of confusion, total darkness. Passengers on the first coach took the hardest hit, I believe that's where most of the casualties are."

Nielson said the train was very crowded at the time. Emergency services arrived within 10 to 15 minutes, he said, and used special equipment to open the doors, which were jammed.

Nielson spoke from an evacuation center in the city of Nyborg, on Funen, where he was taken with scores of others from the train. "It's a bad way to start the New Year, but I'm glad to be safe," he said.

Flemming Jensen, managing director of Denmark's national rail service, DSB, said it took the accident very seriously.

"Our thoughts are with relatives and we are doing all we can and what is practically possible, to assist clients and their relatives," he said.

The bridge has now reopened to road traffic heading east but with speed restrictions in place, police said. Drivers are urged to show respect by not taking pictures or slowing down to look at the crash scene.
