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.

Two hurt as train derails in Hualien

Carriages of a Tzechiang-class express train yesterday lie on the side of the railway tracks between Fuyuan and Guangfu stations in Hualien County after the train derailed. 
Jun 23, 2016

Two passengers were injured when a Tzechiang-class express train derailed in Hualien County yesterday afternoon, the Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) said.

The derailment occurred at 2:49pm when the train, which had begun its trip at Kaohsiung’s Sinzuoying Station and was carrying 200 passengers, was on its way to Hualien, the TRA said.

The Nos. 7, 8 and 9 carriages derailed when the train was between Fuyuan (富源) and Guangfu (光復) townships, with the latter two carriages overturning on the side of the tracks.

The No. 7 carriage was left severely tilted to one side.

Two female passengers sustained minor injuries and were taken to the Taipei Veterans’ General Hospital Fonglin Branch in Fonglien (鳳林).

The TRA said the derailment also damaged three transmission towers, 100m of power lines, 300 pre-stressed concrete sleepers and 300m of track.

Full operations on the damaged section of track are due to resume by 12pm today.

The TRA said that the derailment had affected the schedules of 37 trains and an estimated total of 5,300 passengers.

Yesterday’s incident was the second derailment on the Hualien-Taitung line this month.

On June 4, high temperatures were suspected to have caused the tracks to deform, leading to a derailment of a northbound Chukuang-class train.

The temperature of the affected tracks was recorded at 63°C, higher than the 60?C the tracks are designed to withstand.

None of the 50 passengers on that train suffered major injuries, but the incident severely damaged 250m of train track.

Asked about the cause of yesterday’s derailment, the TRA said that the temperatures on the track were measured at 54?C, which did not exceed the temperature limit.

It said footage from surveillance cameras on the train did not indicate any unusual occurance and that an investigation would be conducted to determine the cause of the incident.

The deformation of the tracks could have been caused by derailment or by the train driver applying the emergency brakes, it said.

The design of the tracks could be flawed as well, the TRA added.

At least nine people have been severely wounded in the crash, with many still waiting to be rescued according to officials.

Announcing the death toll, local Mayor Francis Dejon said: “These are numbers that are likely to evolve.”

Railway officials are investigating claims that the incident was caused by a lightning strike on the line earlier that day.
