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.

Crews investigate train derailment

  • Nov 14, 2018

Crews were still working late Wednesday on a derailed train that dumped a load of lumber just off Highway 20 west of Albany near Hyak Park.

The train, on Portland & Western tracks but pulled by a Union Pacific engine, derailed early Wednesday morning. About three cars, all carrying lumber, went off the tracks, spilling wood off a small bridge and into a creek below. There were no reports of injuries.

Information was not immediately available from the railroad or from the Oregon Department of Transportation, but representatives from both were thought to have responded to the scene.

Crews brought out heavy equipment Wednesday afternoon to right the cars, reducing the highway to one lane and causing traffic backup in the area

At least 10 stowaways dead as DR Congo train derails

BUKAVU, DR CONGO (AFP) - At least 10 stowaways were killed and 24 were injured when a freight train derailed in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, a local official said Sunday (Nov 11).
Rehema Omari, stationmaster in the town of Samba near where the accident occurred on Friday, said the toll was provisional.
"The brakes gave way when the train was going at top speed," she told AFP, adding that the driver had fled.

A migration service official said however that he saw "at least 30 mangled bodies and others under the cars" of the train.
State rail company SNCC's director general for Lubumbashi, Ilunga Ilunkamba, said experts were on the scene to determine the final toll and investigate the causes of the accident.
SNCC is headquartered in Lubumbashi, the DR Congo's mining capital, where the train had been headed from the central city of Kindu when it derailed near Samba some 280 kilometres to the south, Omari said.

Rail accidents in the sprawling former Belgian colony are frequent and often deadly because of decrepit track and ageing locomotives dating from the 1960s.
In November 2017, 35 people, many of them clandestine passengers, were killed when a freight train carrying 13 oil tankers plunged into a ravine in southern Lualaba province.

Runaway train derailed in Australia after 50 minutes

  • 6 November 2018

A freight train was deliberately derailed after hurtling through Western Australia at high speed for 50 minutes without its driver.

The 268-wagon train, owned by mining giant BHP, travelled for 92km (57 miles) with no-one on board in the outback Pilbara region on Monday.

The company said it had derailed the train remotely from Perth. It has since suspended its rail operations.

BHP said the incident had begun when the driver alighted to inspect a wagon.

"While the driver was outside of the locomotive, the train commenced to run away," the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) said in a statement.

No-one was injured when the train, carrying iron ore, was derailed at 05:30 local time (18:30 Sunday GMT), the ATSB said. It has begun an investigation.

BHP said the train had been travelling from its inland Newman mine to Port Hedland.

It was derailed near Turner, about 120km from its destination, damaging the train and a 1.5km section of track.

The train was estimated to have been travelling at an average speed of 110km/h (68mph).

BHP said the train had travelled through a sparsely populated region on the company's own tracks.

State Premier Mark McGowan described the incident as "very concerning".

"I am sure that there will be a full review undertaken by BHP, and I will consult about what role the state might have in that," he said on Tuesday.

The Anglo-Australian miner said it was likely to take a week to restore its operations.

In July, rival company Rio Tinto said it had become the world's first miner to complete a heavy freight journey with new driverless train technology.

TRAX train derails in West Valley City, strikes oncoming train


The last car of a northbound TRAX train leaving West Valley City derailed Thursday night, hitting a power pole and an oncoming train, according to Utah Transit Authority.
The derailment happened about 7:30 p.m. as the northbound train turned a corner leaving West Valley Central station, 2750 W. 3590 South. The last car fishtailed into a power pole, which fell on top of the train car, and then it hit the southbound train, UTA spokesman Carl Arky said. The southbound train was also derailed in the collision.
“It’s amazing how it happened just as another train was passing it,” Arky said.

No one was riding the northbound train, which completely derailed onto the opposite tracks. Nineteen people were aboard the southbound train. No one was injured, though passengers had to wait about an hour to exit because officials wanted to make sure the broken electricity pole and been powered down, Arky said.
Arky said UTA will investigate the cause of the derailment. He expects the review to take a few weeks.
The derailments caused delays in the area, and UTA officials set up a bus bridge to carry passengers between Redwood Junction and West Valley Central while the train system was down. Arky said passengers would likely need to use the bus bridge through at least Friday morning.

Amtrak Train Derails In Hudson River Tunnel, Causing Delays For Morning Commute
November 2, 2018 at 12:55 pm

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A disabled Amtrak train caused major delays in and out of Penn Station for the Friday morning commute.
The maintenance train derailed inside the North Tube of the Hudson River Tunnel around 6 a.m., leaving only the South Tube open for use. More than four hours later, Amtrak tweeted the train had been removed and service was restored with residual delays.

As of 12:30 p.m., some Amtrak trains were experiencing residual delays, while New Jersey Transit and Long Island Rail Road said their service was close to schedule. Earlier, Amtrak and NJ TRANSIT riders faced up to 60-minute delays for the morning rush.
Riders told CBS2’s Reena Roy the disruptions made them late to work, miss meetings, cut it close with flights and even miss a wedding.
“Pretty awful, waiting here 60 minutes for a train,” one man said.
“I’m very stressed out. I was supposed to be at a meeting an hour ago,” another man added.
“It’s not a good feeling, not a good  feeling,” said Garrett Gillis, who had been asked to witness a good friend’s wedding in Trenton but had to miss out. “It just sucks that it had to happen today of all days.”

This is just the latest in a series of service disruptions for the agencies.
On Monday, an NJ TRANSIT train lost power, leaving commuters in the dark with no air circulating for hours. Then on Tuesday, the Amtrak-operated portal bridge over the Hackensack River malfunctioned for more than an hour after opening for marine traffic.

CBS2 has been demanding answers from elected officials about the aging bridge all week. Governor Philly Murphy has promised changes, and on Friday called on other officials to step up.
“It’s a mess we inherited but we’re going to claw through it,” Murphy said. “If you’re a commuter and you’re frustrated I don’t blame you. We will fix this, we need the federal government to help us fix it. We need Amtrak, but we will fix it.”
“The delayed commutes, missed family time and lost economic opportunity this week show yet again how much we need to Build Gateway Now. Today’s delays would not have happened with a new Gateway tunnel, which will create badly needed resiliency so trains can operate around minor disruptions without wreaking havoc on the entire Northeast Corridor rail system. There is simply no more time to waste in building a new Portal Bridge and Hudson River Tunnel to finally bring 21st Century transportation to 200,000 passengers a day,” Gateway Project Trustees Steven M. Cohen, Tony Coscia, and Jerry Zaro said in a statement Friday.

Photos from the scene just south of the city of Luodong showed the train’s eight cars in a zig-zag formation near the tracks. Five of the cars are turned over on their sides.
Most of the deaths were in the first car, which flipped over, a government spokesman said.

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.

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.
