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.

2 CN trains derail in Alberta within 24 hours

1st derailment was near Vermilion, 2nd near Wildwood

CN is facing criticism from an Alberta mayor after two of its freight trains derailed in the province in less than 24 hours.

On Friday afternoon, a train derailed near Wildwood, Alta., about 120 kilometres east of Edmonton. CN said 15 cars carrying coal went off the tracks around 3:30 p.m. MT. On Thursday night, up to 20 CN train cars carrying peas derailed near Vermilion, Alta.

Yellowhead County Mayor Gerald Soroka is frustrated that CN did not quickly inform him about the derailment in Wildwood.

“This is one of the things that we’ve had concerns with in the past dealing with CN,” Soroka said, adding that sometimes it has taken as long as 12 hours before CN has been provided details about derailments.

“We want to make sure our residents are safe and our first responders are safe,” Soroka said. “Without CN communicating that to us, we have no idea the dangerous situation that [first responders] are going into.”

As of 6 p.m. on Friday night, Soroka still had not heard from CN. He found out about the derailment from a staff member who drove by the scene.

Jennie Maerz, who owns an ice cream shop in Wildwood, said CN needs to inform the town whenever there has been a derailment.

“It’s rather worrisome,” she said. “Luckily [our councillor] said there was nothing that would be a danger to us, but it’s kind of scary to have train derailments when you live very close to the track.”

No injuries, says CN

CN spokesman Jim Feeny said there were no injuries in either derailment. Both trains were not carrying dangerous goods.  

TSB investigators were sent to the site at Vermilion. The train was crossing a secondary highway at the time of the derailment, causing a temporary closure. Vermilion is about 200 kilometres east of Edmonton.

Train derails, blocking two major streets in town

Posted: Wednesday, September 24, 2014 4:00 pm | Updated: 7:46 pm, Wed Sep 24, 2014.

LOGAN – A representative of the Indiana & Ohio Railway has confirmed there was a minor derailment of three train cars in Logan Tuesday night.

According to Chuck Logan, general manager with the railway, a train delivering material to Melvin Stone Company on California Avenue derailed at approximately 8:45 p.m. Tuesday night.

“It was a relatively minor incident and no one was injured,” stated Logan in a phone interview with The Logan Daily News.

At this time, the incident is under investigation and Logan said it is uncertain what happened to cause the derailment that closed East Front and East Second streets.

At noon Wednesday, the train track crossing at East Front and East Second streets was cleared, but the roadway remained closed.

“We are working to get the road open so the residents of Logan are not inconvenienced any longer than necessary,” Logan continued.

Logan stated a contractor from West Virginia was enroute to remove the derailed cars and once that is done, railroad workers would be able to repair the tracks and get everything back online.

“I estimate everything to be done within a day or two,” Logan added.

No one from Melvin Stone would comment other than to say the train was headed to their site to unload

The mayor of Slave Lake says the federal government needs to do more to ensure the town's safety after the sixth train derailment in about four months.

"More action needs to be taken," said Mayor Tyler Warman, less than 24 hours after a CN train derailed east of Slave Lake.

"The safety of our residents, the safety of our property, the safety of our environment and the lake and the drinking water that we have is obviously paramount."

Four engines and 21  train cars went off the tracks at 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday in the Mitsue Industrial area, about 10 kilometres east of town. Transportation Safety Board spokesperson Chris Krepski said three of the derailed cars were carrying dangerous chemicals, although none of the cars were leaking.

Two trains go through Slave Lake each day which, in total, transport 56,000 cars full of dangerous goods annually.

"Obviously concern is starting to be a word that's vastly understated," Warman said.

Warman posted a blog on the Slave Lake website Wednesday, saying “residents are nervous and uneasy and they have every right to be.”

Lisa Wilson lives just 20 metres from the tracks. She says she and her neighbours are fed up with the situation.

"There's a real problem here,” she said. “It's really scary to think about if it happened while the kids are walking home from school or somebody is driving by. I'm just thankful that nobody got hurt."

Train carrying passenger van derails in Altoona

Updated: Saturday, September 20 2014, 07:41 PM EDT

ALTOONA, Pa. -- A train carrying passenger vans and cars derailed in Altoona Saturday morning. Crews were called to the intersection of 10th Avenue and 21st Street. They found 26 train cars damaged; 17 were derailed. The impact of the crash flipped at least one car, which landed on a parked car feet away from several homes on 10th Avenue. Robert Hofer told 6 News he stepped outside when heard a loud crash coming from the tracks. "[I felt] terror. Absolute terror because I thought the one car was gonna come down right on top of me. I saw it go up in the air, and come down and I thought I was gonna die right there," Hofer said. No one was hurt. Residents living in nearby homes had to be evacuated for safety reasons. Neighbors nearby described hearing the screeching of metal as the train came to a rest across multiple tracks. "When it first happened [I] heard a bunch of slamming. [I] could hear the train cars hitting the rocks. [I] heard it slam and hit the ground. [I] heard everything skid, and slide and then there was this big cloud of brown smoke ... it was just horrible," said Casey Case. Norfolk Southern released a statement at 2 p.m. Saturday:

"An eastbound [Norfolk Southern] train from Fostoria, Ohio, heading to Wilmington, Del., derailed as it moved through a crossover track at 9:45 a.m. Seventeen cars derailed and nine cars are on their sides. No hazardous materials were involved. No injuries. The cars that are on their sides were hauling automobiles. The train has two locomotives and 107 loaded cars.   [Norfolk Southern] acted immediately to respond to the incident. We have contractors at the scene and on their way to begin clean up. [There's] no timetable yet for when cleanup will be complete. [The] cause is under investigation." Blair County EMA Director Dan Boyels said the passenger vans and cars being transported had two gallons of gasoline inside, making the plan to remove the train delicate. "We're not out of the woods yet. Nobody's gotten hurt so whenever [Norfolk Southern] starts moving the vehicles then we have to be ready in case we have a spark," Boyels said. Officials believe the cleanup could take days, but the crew's biggest concern was removing the train cars and fixing the track. The American Red Cross is helping those displaced by the crash

Weather causes train derailment near Picacho Peak; investigators say there was nothing hazardous in the cars.

Nearly 40 empty train cars derailed Monday night near Picacho Peak, a Union Pacific spokesman confirmed, in an incident that was thought to be weather related.

The weather also damaged roofs in a complex of warehouses about 10 miles north of Picacho Peak in a Casa Grande industrial park, according to employees.

The train was carrying 107 cars from Houston to Los Angeles when 39 cars derailed near Interstate 10 at about 10:30, according to Mark Davis, a Union Pacific spokesman.

The cars were empty and investigators expect to have the tracks cleared by noon today, Davis said. About 40 trains a day pass through the area.

A National Weather Service meteorologist said a strong downburst occurred in that area around the same time, which likely contributed to the derailment.

Chris Rasmussen, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said there could have been a microburst, but the agency's weather radar can't register data in that specific altitude.

"Given from the radar information, it was the storm that caused derailment," Rasmussen said. "Was it a microburst? I wouldn't have that specific information. But it is likely, in my opinion. It was definitely severe."

Microbursts often develop in areas with midlevel dry air cooling beneath a thunderstorm cloud base, according to the National Weather Service's website.

About 10 miles to the north of Picacho Peak, portions of the roofs at the Federal Compress and Warehouse company were ripped off, according to employees who discovered the damage when they arrived to work Tuesday.

Train derails near Fort Wayne


NEW HAVEN, Ind. (WANE) – A train derailed early Monday morning in the New Haven area, which is just east of Fort Wayne in Allen County.

The New Haven Fire Department responded to Dawkins Road and Webster Road just before 6 a.m., after several people reported the derailment. 31 of the Norfolk Southern train’s 84 cars were off the track. Five of the cars remained upright while the rest were on their sides. Officials say all the cars were empty, so nothing spilled.

Norfolk Southern sent two contractors to the scene to help clean up. There’s no estimated time on what that will be complete.

There were no injures and the cause is under investigation.
