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.

Over 50 trains delayed as Yercaud Express derails near Arakkonam

By Express News Service  |   Published: 16th May 2017 04:27 AM

VELLORE: About 50 express and superfast trains and nearly 60 electric multiple unit (EMU) services between Arakkonam and Chennai were disrupted on Monday, after Chennai- Erode Yercaud Express derailed near Arakkonam in the wee hours of the day.

The incident occurred around 12.05 am, when Yercaud Express (No 22649) was on the first line in Tiruvallur-Arakkonam section between Arakkonam and Puliyamangalam stations. Though the train was moving at a slow speed, the locomotive and three coaches — sleeper-cum-brake van and two unreserved coaches — derailed with a bang. Luckily, no one was injured.

There were 1,230 passengers onboard. Of them, about 300 in two unreserved coaches were shifted to Korba-Trivandrum Express (No 22647) by providing a special stoppage at Arakkonam. Higher Education Minister K P Anbalagan, who was onboard in 1 AC along with his family, took a car to Erode.

Though railway officials rushed to the spot, the non-availability of  high-capacity cranes in Arakkonam hindered their work. When the crane operators tried to lift the engine, the rope came off under its weight. Two workers were injured in the incident and were admitted in Arakkonam Railway Hospital.

Nevertheless, the officials managed to remove three coaches from the track. The rest 20 coaches were later pulled back to Thiruvalangadu, located 18 km from Arakkonam. From there, the train proceeded to Erode with a new engine at 4.50 am.

EMU services between Arakkonam and Tiruvallur were cancelled. Even those from Chennai to Arakkonam and Tiruttani were terminated. Bengaluru-bound Brindavan Express, scheduled to reach Katpadi at 9.55 am, arrived at 3.15 pm. Similarly, all trains from Chennai to Bengaluru, Coimbatore, Mangaluru and Thiruvananthapuram were delayed by over three hours.

4 killed, 5 hurt after train derails in northern Greece


 The train, with 70 passengers on board, went off the rails and crashed through a house (May14)

ADENDRO, Greece — An intercity train derailed in northern Greece, leaving four passengers dead and five seriously injured, including the driver, the state railway said in a statement early Sunday.

The train, with 70 passengers, was traveling on the Athens-Thessaloniki route when it went off the rails and crashed through a house by the village of Adendro, 25 miles west of Thessaloniki, on Saturday night.

"I was sitting on my porch. I saw a flash and immediately heard a terrible explosion," Giorgos Mylonas, 78, told The Associated Press. "Then I saw the train enter (a nearby) house and heard the two Albanians who live there scream for help."

One of the three-story house's two tenants said he and his friend jumped from the balcony.

"We heard a terrible explosion and we were very scared," said Mir, 26, who only gave his first name.

The train's engine went right through the house, whose bottom floor is storage space. The house is now tilting.

A local official, Mavroudis Mintsioudis, said "the whole house is now leaning on the train, which shows you how severe the crash was."

Emergency workers, along with two dozen fire trucks and many ambulances, are on the scene. Police wouldn't let anyone get close, but a dog sniffing through the wreck could be seen alongside firefighters.
