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.

Twenty passengers sustained critical injuries on Thursday when 11 coaches as well as the locomotive of Khushal Khan Khattak Express en route from Karachi to Peshawar derailed in a hilly area on Sehwan-Larkana track near Sehwan.
Reportedly, a team of rescue officers led by Karachi Divisional Superintendent Hafeezullah Bhurgari, Deputy Superintendent Shahid Hussain Samoon rushed to the spot to supervise relief and rehabilitation work. As a result of the incident, rail traffic travelling to Karachi was suspended near Sehwan. Railway officials said it would take 10 to 12 hours to clear the track.

Later, Sann Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Arbab Soomro and other railway staff working under Sehwan Station Master Majeed Soomro moved to the spot to assist passengers.
Meanwhile, the DSP said that the apparent cause of the accident was ‘unrepaired’ railway track and not any terrorist act. Majeed Soomro said that a technical team would hold a thorough probe to determine the actual cause of the accident. “Since the accident site is off the road, repair of the track may take more time than usual,” he said.
Pakistan Railway Assistant Engineer Maqsood Ahmed Larik led another team of 250 employees along with labourers to expedite the rehabilitation work after four hours of the accident, and subsequently restored eight coaches. He said that passengers were sent to Peshawar via a rescue train, and necessary measures were taken for passengers waiting at Amri railway station, who were facing shortages of food and water supply

Authorities say no one hurt after train derails into northwest Iowa river

Published 4:39 p.m. CT Sept. 23, 2018 | Updated 6:20 p.m. CT Sept. 23, 2018

A Union Pacific train carrying industrial sand and soybean oil came off it’s tracks on Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, near Alton, Iowa. Sioux County Sheriff, Special to the Register

Authorities responded to another train derailment in a small northwest Iowa town Sunday morning after a week of heavy rains.

Sioux County authorities said no one was hurt in the accident and no hazardous materials had leaked into the Floyd River or could be detected in the air above Alton, near where the train crashed Sunday.

In an email, Raquel Espinoza, a senior director of corporate communications for Union Pacific, said "recent flooding may have contributed to the accident."

The massive crash followed days of heavy rain in the area, which had elevated the river below the railroad bridge to a record high earlier in the week. As of early Sunday afternoon, the Floyd River was still barely above flood stage at 13 feet, meteorologist Kyle Weisser with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, told the Register.

Espinoza said an estimated 37 of the train's 95 cars derailed. The train, on its way to North Platte, Nebraska, from Mankato, Minnesota, was carrying industrial sand and soybean oil. Some of the sand spilled into the river.

Twenty of the derailed cars fell into the river, according to Union Pacific. The bridge beneath the train was destroyed.

In an aerial video posted on Facebook, the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office shows a line of mangled cars sitting in the Floyd River. The accident occurred Sunday morning at around 4:30 a.m., Alton City Administrator Dale Oltmans said.

Oltmans said the bridge over the river is “gone … laying in pieces underneath the train.” Several local fire departments, county officials and Union Pacific personnel responded to the early morning crash.

Oltmans said people living three or four blocks away from the bridge heard the loud crash, the second train derailment of the year in northwest Iowa.

On June 22, 32 freight cars carrying crude oil derailed in the Rock River, spilling thousands of gallons of the oil. The river had also taken on heavy rains in the days leading up to the incident.

Weisser said that the area of the state around Alton received 4-8 inches of rain earlier in the week. According to weather service measurements, Alton received 4.58 inches of rain between Tuesday and Friday.

The heavy rains forced the city to close a section of Third Avenue that goes above the river, Oltmans said. It was still closed as of Sunday afternoon.

The Floyd River, Weisser said, peaked on Thursday afternoon at 21.96 feet — about 12 feet above flood stage. When the train derailed, the weather service’s measurements showed the fallen cars acting as a temporary dam for the river.

Espinoza said Union Pacific looks into weather forecasts and environmental conditions where trains operate, she said. The company urges its crews to be safe if they run into a weather-related issue that could affect the train's ability to move down the tracks.

Part of the crash investigation will include will include what if any communications the crew received about its trip, Espinoza said.

The sheriff’s office also issued an alert Sunday afternoon, advising drivers to avoid traveling through Alton to allow the authorities and their equipment to clean up the wreck.

Probe launched after Tasmanian train derails

September 22, 2018

An investigation has been launched after a freight train came off the tracks and injured two pedestrians in Tasmania this morning.

Emergency services rushed to Devonport Wharf at 9am after receiving a report that an automated TasRail train carrying cement was about to derail.

About nine minutes later, the driverless train came off the tracks and hit a fence on Formby Road, just 100 metres from the Harbour Master Cafe.

A woman sustained cuts and abrasions to her head after the impacted fencing material struck her, Tasmania Police told 9news.com.au.

A man aged in his 40s also suffered cuts and abrasions, along with a suspected broken elbow.

Both pedestrians were taken to North West Regional Hospital.

The Australian Transport and Safety Bureau (ATSB) are now investigating the incident.

“We’ve got four investigators on the way to the site as we speak, and they will be commencing the evidence collection phase,” ATSB Executive Director Nat Nagy said this afternoon.

The probe will involve examination of the train, recorded data, and collecting witness statements.

“We will also look at how the operator and emergency services responded to the situation,” Mr Nagy said.

Harbour Master Cafe owner Leigh Murphy has told The Mercury he heard a “loud rumbling noise” moments before the derailment.

“I thought it was an excavator coming off the Spirit of Tasmania,” Mr Murphy told the newspaper.

Motorists are advised Formby Road remains closed between Steele Street and Best Street.

Freight train derails in Klamath Falls

September 18, 2018

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – A freight train traveling from Vancouver to Barstow derailed Tuesday morning in Klamath Falls.

The crash happened just south of the rail yard near Altamont Drive just before 11.

Devon Brown of Klamath County Fire District #1 was among the first responders, saying, “Turned out to be a train derailment of approximately 6 to 10 cars. One car is a low-pressure tank car that contained argon. It’s not leaking, it’s an armored car.”

Burlington Northern Santa Fe spokesman Gus Melonas later confirmed a total of 15 cars derailed. Four of those cars fell onto their side, three of those cars were carrying lumber while the third was the tank car loaded with argon.

Melonas said the cause of the derailment is still under investigation, adding that there were no injuries.

According to BNSF, the train was outbound at a speed of 7 mph.

The derailment did not block any major rail lines through the area.

Crews have been called in from outside the area to re-rail the cars.

Train Derails in North Carolina During Hurricane Florence Flooding

Floodwaters from Hurricane Florence washed a train off the rails in Anson County on Sept. 16.

A major cleanup was underway on Monday after the derailment of the CSX freight train in Lilesville.

“None of the derailed cars were carrying hazardous material and none spilled their contents. Some of the locomotives released an undetermined amount of diesel fuel and motor oil,” according to a statement from CSX obtained by Fox 46.

The company was working with the federal Environmental Protection Agency on cleaning up the site, and a hazmat team was among those responding.

A picture from the scene late Sunday showed rail cars toppled over, with one sticking far into the air.

WRAL reported that the train’s crew was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
