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.

Union Pacific train derails near Roanoke, sending 5 rail cars into Denton Creek

http://www.dallasnews.com/news/community-news/denton-county/2016082...

No one was injured Sunday when a Union Pacific train carrying coal derailed near Roanoke, sending five rail cars tumbling into a creek, police said.

About 20 cars derailed and five fell into Denton Creek around 6 p.m., Roanoke police Detective Sandy Pettigrew said.

It appears the bridge failed, but Union Pacific has not confirmed a cause, she said.

The train was not carrying any hazardous materials, Pettigrew said.

Flower Mound police have shut down southbound U.S. Highway 377 from Cross Timbers Road into Roanoke.

Diesel leak following two trains going in opposite directions side swiped each other.

AUGUST 21, 2016, http://www.torontosun.com/2016/08/21/cp-rail-train-derails-in-toronto

TORONTO - Two freight trains sideswiped each other in the heart of Toronto early Sunday morning,

resulting in a diesel leak.

Around 5:30 a.m., Toronto Fire Services responded to reports of loud, unusual noises coming from

the railway line near Dupont St. and Spadina Rd.

“It was discovered that two trains going in opposite directions side swiped each other,” district chief David Taylor said.

“The westbound train had a split in the diesel tank, which is now currently leaking, but contained.”

Taylor added the last three cars on the eastbound train derailed, and crews are on scene cleaning up the spill.

Toronto Police said there is no threat to public safety.

Angela Singer-Butler, who lives nearby, said she was woken up by the “earth-shattering” accident.

“We all heard this huge bang and we were so startled,” she said. “We often hear the trains, but it doesn’t

really wake us up.”

John McGrath, a board member of the Annex Residents’ Association, came to the scene after seeing reports on Twitter.

He said the association, along with other groups, have been trying to get the rail line moved for years.

“It’s been three years since Lac-Megantic and we haven’t learned a thing,” he said. “We are still shipping dangerous cargo through residential neighbourhoods.”

Officials haven’t said what the trains were carrying.

CP Rail is investigating the cause of the accident.

Train derails in SWAR, causes traffic delays

Sunday, August 14th 2016, 5:59 pm EDT

Authorities in Southwest Arkansas are working to clean up more than two dozen rail cars after a train derailment.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. Sunday on U.S. Highway 82 between Lewisville, Arkansas and Texarkana.

County officials say the cars were loaded with frac sand, which is not hazardous. The frac sand is a natural material made from sandstone.

The train was traveling west when 32 cars derailed.

Union Pacific investigators are still trying to determine what cause the wreck. Several hundred feet of rails were damaged as a result, along with a railroad bridge.

Thankfully, no injuries were reported.

The tracks run adjacent to Hwy. 82 which could cause some traffic delays.

"It is right down the main heart highway through our country as and we have a major traffic problem developing. It's going to be a long, drawn-out deal we are going to have to go down to one lane," explained Lafayette County Sheriff Obie Sims.

Sims said clean up could take two to three days.

Train derails including hazardous-materials cars containing sulfuric acid.

A shelter-in-place order was in effect for several hours following the crash.

FALMOUTH, Ky. —Cleanup will continue for several days following a train derailment in Pendleton County.

it happened around 10:30 a.m. near Woodson Street in Falmouth.

Authorities said 24 cars of a 125-car CSX train en route to Atlanta derailed, including four hazardous-materials cars containing sulfuric acid.

There were no hazardous materials released, CSX said.

Aerial video showed firefighters and workers examining several rail cars, some of which were overturned, while others were off the tracks.

Watch: Aerial video

“It looks like a kid playing with train cars and throwing them every which way,” resident Dustin Weaver said. “There’s so much destruction down there, it’s unbelievable.”

More rail cars were still on the tracks north of the crash scene.

Several of the derailed cars were missing wheels, which were in a pile south of the main crash area. The track was also torn up in that area.

"I don’t think there’s one car that’s been derailed that’s intact," Weaver said.
The crash shook the neighborhood, causing power outages across the area.

"I thought it was an earthquake or something and it just stopped,” Sonny Hibbar Jr. said. “(I) came outside and we see this over here behind my left shoulder."

Some lost power for a millisecond. Others were without electricity for several hours. All power has since been restored.

A shelter-in-place order was in effect for several hours after the crash. Residents were asked to also turn off A/C units, as officials feared sulfuric acid may have spilled. That was not the case.

Photos from the scene

Southern Elementary School students were moved to Pendleton County High School because the elementary school is located downwind.

Numerous roads throughout the city were also closed.

No injuries have been reported so far.

D.C. Metro train derails; 1 passenger hurt

Friday, July 29, 2016

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Metro says a train has derailed in northern Virginia, and fire officials say one of about 75 passengers on the train was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

Metro spokesman Richard Jordan says two cars derailed at the East Falls Church Metro station platform Friday morning, but the train is upright. There’s no service between McLean and Ballston, which is causing orange and silver line delays that will likely continue through the morning.

Arlington County Fire Department spokesman Deputy Fire Marshal Peter Corbino says one passenger was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

Jordan says the derailment happened by a switch where trains begin using one track in an area where Metro’s performing work as part of a major maintenance effort.


He says the cause is under investigation.
