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.

CSX train carrying chemicals derails near Allendale, S.C.

MARTIN, S.C. — A CSX train carrying chemicals derailed in Martin about 2:40 a.m. today and hazardous-materials teams are working the scene near the Archroma plant, which has been evacuated.

Allendale County sheriff’s Lt. Steven Robinson, who is serving as the public information officer at the staging area nearby, said they have reports of two people being injured.

“They were taken first to Allendale County Hospital and then to Doctors Hospital in Augusta,” he said.

He did not know the cause nor the extent of their injuries.

South Carolina Highway 125 from state Highway 3 to Patterson Mill Road and Revolutionary Trail at Highway 3 has been blocked off while CSX and SRS hazardous-materials teams investigate and secure the scene, said Robinson.

He said he does not know what chemical was on the train whether any has been spilled.

The Archroma plant near the accident scene was evacuated for precautionary purposes.

“Everything is precautionary,” Robinson said. “At no time were the citizens in the Martin and Millett area in danger.”

“Around 2:40 a.m., Allendale County dispatch received a call of a train derailment. EMS and fire departments responded,” he said.

Additional support from fire departments from Allendale, Fairfax and Martin, CSX Hazardous Materials, Savannah River Site Hazardous Materials, Allendale and Barnwell County Emergency Preparedness offices, the state Emergency Management Division, the state Department of Health and Environmental Control, and the American Red Cross arrived.

Allendale County Fire Chief Roger Stanley is in charge of the scene, Robinson said.

“Right now the haz-matat teams are working the scene and we aren’t letting anyone down there until they secure it,” Robinson said from a command staging area at Mount Hope Baptist Church in Martin.

He said no homes in the area have been evacuated.

American Red Cross disaster-trained volunteers are assisting emergency response crews at the derailment. According to a ARC news release, “Per request of the Allendale County Emergency Management Agency, the Red Cross is providing meals, snacks, and hydration to more than 40 emergency responders. The Red Cross is prepared to continue to assist as long as needed.”

Train Hauling Fracking Sand Derails In Uniontown, Nearly Hits House

UNIONTOWN (KDKA) – A major cleanup effort continues in Fayette County after a train derailed this morning, nearly hitting some nearby homes.

According to emergency dispatchers, the incident happened on East Penn Street in Uniontown around 7:40 a.m.

Seven massive hopper cars of the 80-car frack sand hauler derailed. All were carrying up to 135,000 pounds of sand, some of it spilling along the tracks

“We’re very fortunate with sand. There’s some Hazmats that travel across this rail, too,” Uniontown Fire Chief Dane Griffith said.

Southwest Pennsylvania Railroad operates the short line, which carries mostly Marcellus Shale products.

One of the derailed cars came to rest mere feet from the front porch of a house.

“We heard a train coming through like always and then we heard a big boom. We all jumped and ran and there it was laying in our yard,” Georgia Eans said. “I thought I was dreaming. I knew this day was going to come, but I just didn’t know when.”

“It sounded like lightning hitting the ground,” said Angela Swop, a Uniontown resident.

There are no reported injuries.

It is unclear what led to the derailment at this time, but the train’s conductor is cooperating with investigators.

Each derailed car has to be emptied before they can be righted and removed from the area. Eight vacuum trucks have been brought in to empty each car, along with other heavy equipment.

Another train has been brought in to take away the cars that remained on the track.

Several utility poles were sheared off by the derailment as well.

East Penn Street is currently closed.

The investigation into the derailment continues.

No Heathrow Express or Heathrow Connect were expected to run before midday on Wednesday.

It followed the derailment of a train at the depot, meaning no services were able to leave the Ealing base.

The incident was expected to chaos widespread delays and disruption for holidaymakers, despite tickets being accepted on other routes.

It came as thousands of rail passengers faced fresh travel misery because of another signal failure, which led to huge delays on some of the busiest routes in the country.

TRAIN DERAILS NEAR MINERVA

By KIMBERLY LEWISReview Minerva Bureau Published: January 21, 2015 3:00AM

MINERVA -- An employee at Summitville Tile's Arbor Road plant heard some pops and bangs near the plant before 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Employees would soon discover four rail cars had jumped the tracks near their plant, just past where the train tracks cross Arbor Road.

Arbor Road, just south of Brush Road in Brown Township, remained closed as Ohi-Rail officials determined what caused the rail cars to derail and to clear the tracks.

Although it was unknown how long the road would be closed, the cleanup was expected to take several hours.

A blast of winter weather was expected to delay the cleanup.

An Ohi-Rail employee noted the train had been "switching out rail cars" and only some of the cars were loaded with sand, while others were empty.

The cars remained intact and none of the nearby residences were evacuated.

Ohi-Rail had recently renovated the tracks from Minerva to Hopedale in anticipation of increased train traffic related to the oil and gas industry.

Just last week, during a State of Minerva presentation to Minerva Chamber of Commerce members, General Manager Denny Varian noted how safe rail cars are compared to truck traffic.

"Rail cars are designed to stay intact in a collision of two trains going 30 mph. We will be going through town around 10 mph. It is hard to have an accident at that speed," he explained.

"It is a very safe form of transportation," Varian said.

UPDATE: CP Rail delayed reporting Glacier National Park derailment

posted Jan 14, 2015 at 11:00 AM— updated Jan 14, 2015 at 3:28 PM

CP Rail took more than a day to notify the Transportation Safety Board about a derailment that took place in Glacier National Park, theTimes Review was told.

James Carmichael, a senior investigator with the TSB, said they were only notified of the derailment Wednesday morning — more than 24 hours after five cars jumped the track on the Stoney Creek Bridge.

"It is a concern," he said. "The head office will be looking into the delay in reporting."

A CP Rail train derailed on the Stoney Creek Bridge near the east end of Glacier National Park on Tuesday, Jan. 13, at around 5:30 a.m.

CP Rail spokesperson Salem Woodrow said five empty flat cars derailed. She denied reports the cars were dangling in the air off the bridge, which sits almost 100 metres above Stoney Creek.

Woodrow said there were no injuries, no spills and no public safety concerns.

TSB regulations require railway companies to report incidents "as soon as possible and by the quickest means available."

Woodrow said CP Rail would be looking into the delay in reporting, saying it was company policy to report incidents as soon as possible.

"It is part of our processes to contact them immediately," she said.

Carmichael said the TSB was investigating the derailment.

"We just found out about it earlier on today," he said. "We're starting to do our investigative work. We have not deployed yet."

He said investigators would look at how the train was being handled, the condition of the track, how the train was marshalled, and any mechanical issues.

The fact it took place on a bridge raises special concerns, said Carmichael. "We've had a couple of other incidents in the last few years where other structures were involved," he said. "They're an integral part of the railway network."

Here is our original story on the derailment, posted Wednesday morning:

A CP Rail train derailed on the Stoney Creek Bridge in Glacier National Park early Tuesday morning, the Times Review has learned.

Salem Woodrow, a spokesperson for CP Rail, confirmed the derailment, which took place Tuesday, Jan. 13, at about 5:30 a.m.

She said five empty flat cars derailed while crossing the bridge. There were no injuries, nothing was spilled and there were no public safety concerns.

The Times Review has contacted the Transportation Safety Board and Parks Canada to see if they have any concerns.

The Stoney Creek Bridge is regarded as one of the most scenic railway bridges in the world. It sits 90 metres above Stoney Creek, towards the eastern end of Glacier National Park.

Woodrow said CP trains were being routed around the site of the derailment.

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

No one was hurt when a freight train derailed Tuesday afternoon on the South Side.

Five rail cars on a train were involved in the derailment near 95th Street and Cottage Grove, according to Chicago fire officials.

Four of the cars rolled onto their sides, and one was tipping, Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said. All of the cars were empty at the time.

Emergency crews initially called for a hazardous materials response as a precaution because the train included some tanker cars, Langford said. None of them were damaged in the derailment.
