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.

Aurangabad train derails

TNN | Apr 22, 2017, 06.48 AM IST

AURANGABAD: The engine and four coaches of the 57550 Aurangabad-Hyderabad passenger train derailed between Kalgapur and Bhalki stations in Bidar district of Karnataka at 1.50am on Friday.

Railway officials said a high-level probe has been ordered into the accident and that it was too early to comment whether the derailment was due to sabotage. "We will have to wait for the inquiry report to know the exact cause of derailment. We have sent our medical relief van, as well as an accident relief team to the spot." Vinod Kumar Yadav, general manager of South Central Railway (SCR), rushed to the spot to oversee the rescue operations, said another railway official.

A Nanded division SCR official said the S1, S2 and S3 coaches and SLR (luggage coach) derailed, leaving many commuters stranded at railway stations across the division. Railway authorities sent the remaining eight coaches to Hyderabad via Parli, Parbhani, Nanded and Nizamabad stations. The Karnataka government came to the rescue and pressed into service a number of buses for passengers of the derailed train to reach Bidar bus stand. The Bidar-Hyderabad intercity express delayed its departure to allow commuters to reach the station.

"The derailment happened minutes after the train crossed the Nizam-era bridge on the Manjra river. However, the motorman managed to control the train in time, thus averting a major tragedy," an official said.

Eight coaches of the Meerut-Lucknow Rajya Rani Express derailed on Saturday morning.

The incident took place between Rampur and Mundapanda --- near a bridge over the Koshi river.

No casualties have been reported so far. More details are awaited.

This is the latest in a string of similar accidents the public transporter has suffered in recent months, underlining the challenge the government faces in turning around the colonial-era rail network that carries more than 23 million passengers daily.

Last November, 142 people were killed and more than 200 injured when 14 coaches of the Indore-Patna Express train derailed in Kanpur Dehat district of Uttar Pradesh.

Then in January, 32 died and over 50 injured when the Bhubaneswar Express derailed in Vizianagaram. In March, 50 people were injured when eight coaches of the Jabalpur-Nizamuddin Mahakaushal Express (12189) derailed in Uttar Pradesh’s Mahoba district.

Most of these accidents are attributed to human error or poor infrastructure coupled with inadequate maintenance.

5 injured in NJ Transit slow-speed derailment at NYC's Penn Station

Kevin McCoy , USA TODAY Published 10:11 a.m. ET April 3, 2017

A minor New Jersey Transit train derailment occurred in Penn Station. There were a few reported injuries, but nothing serious. However, there were widespread delays for commuters. USA TODAY

NEW YORK — At least five people suffered non-life-threatening injuries Monday when a New Jersey Transit train derailed in New York City’s Penn Station near the end of the morning rush hour, authorities said.

The slow-speed derailment marked the second such incident within little more than two weeks at the rail station on Manhattan's West Side, one of the nation’s most heavily traveled mass transit hubs.

The derailment, which occurred around 9 a.m., injured five rail passengers about the northbound NJ Transit train, the Fire Department of New York said. Some of the injured passengers were taken to Bellevue Medical Center for evaluation and treatment, the agency said.

The injured riders were among approximately 1,200 passengers aboard NJ Transit's 7:31 a.m. Northeast Corridor train No. 3926 traveling from Trenton, N.J., to Manhattan, said Nancy Snyder, a spokeswoman for the commuter rail line.

Commuter Tiffany Maxine said the train jolted, and she felt the car in which she was riding shift beneath her as a result of the incident, the Associated Press reported.

The derailment occurred as the train eased through its arrival on Penn Station's track nine. Train personnel safely escorted all of the passengers to exits in the rear of the train and onto rail platforms, Snyder said.

All NJ Transit Service into and out of Penn Station was suspended shortly after the incident, the commuter rail line's Twitter feed reported.

However, NJ Transit train service to New Jersey stations in Newark and Secaucus remained in operation, Snyder said. Midtown Direct line trains from western New Jersey were ending their routes at the Hoboken, N.J., station, where large crowds of commuters tried to reach PATH train service into Manhattan.

PATH trains, New York Waterway service, NJ Transit buses and private bus carriers were cross-honoring NJ Transit rail tickets, Snyder said.

Amtrak, which controls and maintains Penn Station rails, advised that operations on its heavily traveled Acela and Northeast Regional lines between Newark and New York City would be subject to delays after the derailment. Amtrak's Keystone line between New York and Harrisburg, Pa., by way of Philadelphia, could be modified, the national rail carrier said.

Monday's derailment gave Penn Station commuters an unwelcome jolt of deja vu.

An Amtrak Acela express train experienced a minor derailment while departing Penn Station at slow speed on March 24. All 248 passengers aboard that train exited safely onto the platform and into the station.

That incident delayed Amtrak service for hours. The derailment also forced similar delays and cancellations in some NJ Transit and Long Island Rail Road evening rush hour service.

At least 38 injured after 8 coaches of the Mahakaushal Express derails near Mahoba
Mar 29, 2017 | 23:10 IST | SOURCE : Times Now, Agencies

Uttar Pradesh: In a tragic incident, eight coaches of the Jabalpur-Nizamuddin Mahakoshal Express have derailed near the Mahoba station in Uttar Pradesh, and at least 38 passengers have reportedly been injured, as per reports.

The chief Public relations officer, North Central Railway, said accident took place at around 2.00 AM near Kulpahar in Mahoba. The official told that an emergency relief train has been rushed to the spot from Jhansi and the injured have been provided first aid. Most of the injured have been taken to a nearby hospital in Banda.

Close to eight coaches of the express derailed between the Mahoba and Kupahar stations, the official added. It has come to light three AC coaches and close to five general coaches toppled over, injuring close to 38 passengers.

Senior level officials including the general manager of the North Central Railway has reached the spot, and rescue operations started soon after the incident took place. The railway authorities have also released helpline numbers.

The cause of the derailment has not yet been figured out, and a probable investigation will be conducted as soon as the rescue operations end.

This accident again brings the spotlight on Uttar Pradesh, where a slew of train accidents have been suspected to terror activities over the past few months.

An NIA investigation has hinted that Pakistan’s ISI were involved similar incidents that have kept UP railway authorities on high alert. This incident too, will be thoroughly investigated to find out whether it was an accident or a planned terror attack.
