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.

Egyptian passenger train derails near city of Aswan; 6 hurt

It is not clear what caused the train to derail in southern Egypt, on Sunday, July 29, 2018. (Aswan Governorate via AP)
Eight of the train’s carriages were derailed and lifting tools, cranes and maintenance teams were dispatched to the site

Egypt’s railway system has a poor safety record, mostly blamed on decades of badly maintained equipment and poor management

LUXOR, Egypt: An Egyptian passenger train derailed Sunday near the southern city of Aswan, injuring at least six people and prompting authorities to fire the chief of the country's railways.
It was not clear what caused the derailment, which took place near the Salwa train station in Kom Ombo, north of Aswan, the Transportation Ministry said. Eight of the train's carriages were derailed and lifting tools, cranes and maintenance teams were dispatched to the site, the ministry added.
Khaled Megahed, spokesman for the Health Ministry, says the injured were taken to hospital.
Hours after the incident, the head of the railways authority, Sayed Salem was fired, according to a statement from Transportation Minister Hesham Arafat who appointed Ashraf Raslan as acting head of the authority.
The accident comes two weeks after another passenger train derailed in Cairo's twin city of Giza, when at least 55 people were injured.
Egypt's railway system has a poor safety record, mostly blamed on decades of badly maintained equipment and poor management. Official figures show that 1,793 train accidents took place in 2017.
In March, President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said the government lacks about 250 billion Egyptian pounds, or $14.1 billion, to overhaul the run-down railway system. El-Sissi spoke a day after a passenger train collided with a cargo train, killing at least 12 people, including a child.
Last August, two passenger trains collided just outside the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, killing 43 people. In 2016, at least 51 people were killed when two commuter trains collided near Cairo.
s are common in Egypt due to badly maintained roads and vehicles and poor enforcement of traffic laws.

Union Pacific coal train derails at local crossing

RIESEL, Texas (KWTX) Ten cars of a 150-car Union Pacific Railroad coal train derailed late Monday afternoon at the Mount Moriah Road crossing along State Highway 6, just past the Highway 6-Highway 164 split.

No one was injured.

The train, which originated in Wyoming, was hauling coal to a power plant in Riesel.

The cause of the derailment, which was reported at around 5 p.m. Monday, is said to be from a shifted track due to unstable ballast rock.

“We’ll take a look at the track, we’ll take a look at the cars and we’ll be looking at that throughout the night,” Union Pacific spokesman Jeff DeGraff said.

The derailment may require delays or rerouting of other trains.

“We’ll make those decisions once we determine how much work it’s going to take to get the track reopened,” he said.

DeGraff said they are "fortunate" because there are some options for rerouting trains around Central Texas.

Crews will work through the night to clear the tracks and begin cleaning up the spilled coal, he said.

"We expect the work to last through the night and into the morning," said DeGraff.

Union Pacific train derails between Twin Peaks and Avra Valley

Drugs found amidst cleanup

Monsoon season keeps emergency responders busy. Over the course of four hours the afternoon of last Tuesday, July 10, the Northwest Fire District received 34 emergency calls. One call, at 3:13 p.m., was for a stranded motorist near Twin Peaks Road. And at 3:15 p.m., as they drove out to the scene, a Union Pacific train derailed in the same area, scattering 27 rail cars across the train tracks and surrounding area.

“There was a bit of irony that we were already on our way,” said Brian Keeley, NWFD Captain and Public Information Officer. “So it was lucky, we were right on it.” 

The derailment caused no injuries, according to Jeff DeGraff, Arizona director of media relations at Union Pacific. Two crew members were on board, however they were at the front of the train, whereas the derailment occurred toward the middle. 

As of print time, the cause of the derailment was still under investigation. Union Pacific will release an official announcement once the cleanup and investigation is finished. 

“The flooding and heavy rain could play a role,” DeGraff said. “But we’re holding off until we can do a full examination of the tracks.” 

The fire department’s role was mainly for hazardous materials management. Although hazmat crews were dispatched, no hazardous materials were found on scene, according to the Northwest Fire District. 

Workers did uncover a package containing drugs at the cleanup site. 

“Union Pacific Police recovered a package of suspected narcotics from the wreckage,” said DeGraff. “There was no identifying packaging. It was turned over to Marana PD for destruction.”

The Marana Police Department is still investigating the package. Union Pacific also mentioned that the condition of the suspicious package “exposed” its contents.

The derailment obstructed two sets of tracks. Responders cleared one set of tracks on July 11 and sent some trains through, in an attempt to prevent any further delays. The second set of tracks was cleared on July 12. 

Because of the intensely busy day for emergency calls caused by monsoon rains, local agencies assisted Northwest Fire due to mutual aid agreements. The Marana Police Department, Tucson Fire Department, Golder Ranch Fire District, Town of Marana, Pima County Sheriff and the Arizona Department of Public Safety all joined the effort. 

“Public safety is a team effort,” Keeley said. “No one person could take care of all of this, it requires a network.”

Freight train derails in Saint-Polycarpe near Quebec-Ontario border

July 17, 2018 6:39 am

A Canadian Pacific freight train derailed Monday night in the town of Saint-Polycarpe, Que., just east of the Ontario border.

Environment Ministry spokesman Stéphane Dégarie says 25 of the 95 cars derailed and there was no spill of hazardous material.

Two cars containing propane went into a river that runs through the municipality while two other cars also carrying propane came to rest on the riverbank.

Dégarie said there is no threat to the environment because the cars are intact and there are no leaks.

There was minor leak of vegetable oil from one car and Dégarie said steps were being taken to plug the leak and recover the spilled oil.

There were no injuries or evacuations because of the derailment, which happened at about 7 p.m.

There was no word on what may have caused the derailment. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada says it will send an investigator to the scene on Tuesday morning.

Egypt train accident: 55 injured as train derails in Giza province

At least 55 people were hurt on Friday in a train derailment in the province of Giza. Three carriages of the southbound train left the tracks in the town of Badrashin.

By: IANS | Cairo | Published: July 14, 2018 7:42 AM
At least 55 people were hurt on Friday in a train derailment in the province of Giza, the Egyptian Health Ministry said. Three carriages of the southbound train left the tracks in the town of Badrashin, the ministry said in a statement, without offering any details on the reasons for the derailment. The injured were taken to several nearby hospitals. This is the first serious railway incident in Egypt since February, when 10 people died in an accident in the town of Kom Hamada, Efe reported. Egypt’s worst-ever train tragedy was in 2002, when a fire broke out on a train traveling from Cairo to the southern city of Luxor, leaving 376 people dead. Rail accidents are frequent in Egypt due to the poor condition of tracks and rolling stock and to the lack of a modern system of signaling and traffic control.
