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.

Dozens of homes evacuated after Emerson train derailment

http://winnipeg.ctvnews.ca/dozens-of-homes-evacuated-after-emerson-...

Around 7 a.m. Tuesday morning, the sounds of a train running off its tracks forced some people who live near it out of bed in Emerson, Man., including Richard Penner.

"It was just an enormous bang followed by rumbling and my whole house shook," said Penner.

No one was injured but shortly after the loud bang, Penner's home and about 20 others on the east side of Emerson had to be evacuated, forcing 40 people to leave. RCMP said two cars of the train left the tracks around 7:30 a.m. on Aug. 26 near 5th Street East and Taylor Avenue in Emerson, Man.

Derek Robert only had time to grab his phone and a cat after his brother woke him up.  "He's like, ‘We have to get out now because there's something happening,' so then I just ran out," he said.

Emerson Fire Chief Jeff French estimates the train was travelling about eight kilometres an hour when three railcars went off the tracks.

"One was on was listing close to on its side. The other one was kind of listing as well and a third one was off the track," said French.

Thankfully, French said as far as train derailments go, this one is as safe as one could be because investigators did not finding any leaks.

Train carrying sulfuric acid derails near Santa Cruz River in Sonora

Posted: Tuesday, August 26, 2014 12:00 am | Updated: 8:30 am, Tue Aug 26, 2014.

A train carrying sulfuric acid derailed near the north-flowing Santa Cruz River in Sonora on Sunday, but officials said none of the corrosive spilled.

The Hermosillo daily El Imparcial, citing Sonora state civil protection officials, reported that the derailment occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the Ejido Miguel Aleman, a community in the municipality of Santa Cruz, approximately 25 miles southeast of Nogales, Sonora.

The officials told El Imparcial that 15 train cars jumped the tracks, including three tankers that were each carrying 80 tons of sulfuric acid. The train was reportedly on its way to the United States when it derailed.

The officials said no acid was spilled.

Ray Sayre, emergency services director for Santa Cruz County, said he first learned of the incident at 9:36 a.m. Monday from Louis Chaboya, co-chair of the Arizona-Sonora Commission’s emergency management committee. Chaboya also said there had been no spill, Sayre said.

Even so, Sayre said, he notified the Arizona Division of Emergency Management, as well as a hydrologist at the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ).

“We are downstream, as you know, and that’s why I usually bump it up right away so the state’s aware of the situation,” he said.

“If we had a leak, or there was some other stuff on the ground, then that’s a game-changer," he said. "But I didn’t have any indication of that so I didn’t go any father with it.”

Sayre said he would continue to monitor the situation.

Grupo Mexico operates large copper mines in Cananea and Nacozari, Sonora, that connect to the rail line where the derailment occurred. Highly corrosive sulfuric acid is used in the mining process to leach copper from ore.

Earlier this month, more than 10 million gallons of sulfuric acid leaked from Grupo Mexico’s Cananea mine into the nearby, south-flowing Rio Sonora, leaving about 20,000 people in nearby communities without water and forcing the closure of more than 80 schools.

A train derailment in Hoxie, Arkansas has killed two people and sent two others to the hospital with unspecified injuries.

The train crash was reported to state police at 3 a.m. One of the train engines was still in flames at sunrise. Fortunately, authorities said the toxic chemical cargo was safe from the flames. Union Pacific spokesman Brandon Morris said that the two freight cars that caught fire after the train derailment were carrying diesel fuel and an alcoholic beverage respectively.

Freight train derails in western Iran

12 AUGUST 2014, 19:40 (GMT+05:00)

A freight train derailed near Tange Haft station in Iran's western Lorestan province.

The railway is completely blocked due to the incident which took place last night, Hossein Ali Moridi, a railway official said, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported on August 12.

Moridi went on to note that currently the railway employees are trying to reopen the path, forecasting the traffic will be launched by 17:00 local time (GMT +4:30 hours).

The official did not disclose further information about possible casualties.

Several people were injured in a train accident near Tange Haft station in Lorestan province on July 17.

In 2009, at least three people were killed and two others injured when two trains collided on the outskirts of Tehran. The accident happened when a passenger train en route from Mashhad to Tehran hit a maintenance train on the line near the town of Varamin.

Back in 2004, a train loaded with chemicals and fertilizer derailed and exploded along the same route killing at least 300 people.
