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 trains collide in Slinger; two taken to the hospital; more than 100 homes evacuated

SLINGER (WITI) — Slinger Fire Chief Rick Hanke briefed the media just after midnight on Monday, July 21st after two trains collided in Slinger on Sunday night, July 20th. Two people were injured — and taken to the hospital. The collision prompted evacuations of more than 100 homes near the scene.

Officials have blocked off an area from Storck Street to Kettle Moraine, and Slinger Road to Highway 60 — in the area of Slinger High School.

Chief Hanke says three engines derailed — and 10 rail cars derailed as a result of the collision.

Chief Hanke says hazmat crews have been called to the scene, as 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled as a result of the collision.

It began when two separate trains collided — a Canadian National train, and a Wisconsin Southern train. Chief Hanke says the tracks cross at the point where the trains collided — roughly a quarter-mile east of Kettle Moraine Road.

Train Derails In Wisconsin, Evacuation In Progress

Posted: 07/21/2014 1:26 am EDT 

SLINGER, Wis. (AP) — A fire official says two people are injured and several thousand gallons of diesel fuel have spilled after a train derailment in a small Wisconsin village.

Slinger Fire Department Chief Rick Hanke says three engines and 10 railcars derailed Sunday, forcing the evacuation of more than 100 nearby homes.

He says two people are being treated for injuries that are not life-threatening.

Hanke says about 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled from an engine. He says hazmat crews have dikes and booms in place.

A spokesman for Canadian National Railway Co. says preliminary reports indicate one of the company's trains was headed south and struck cars on another train.

The Red Cross was assisting evacuees at a middle school.

Slinger is about 35 miles northwest of Milwaukee.

Train carrying liquefied petroleum gas derails in Everett

EVERETT, Wash. -- A train carrying liquefied petroleum gas derailed Thursday evening in Everett.

A "switching incident" at about 6:30 p.m. caused four tank cars to derail at the BNSF Bayside Yard along West Marine Drive in Everett, according to BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas.

The tanks were not significantly damaged and there were no gas leaks, Melonas said. 

Everett Fire personnel responded to the scene, but there were no injuries and the crews were quickly cleared.

BNSF workers are bringing in machinery to re-rail the cars, and Melonas said the train should be ready to move by midnight.

At least 25 people were injured, four of them seriously, when a high-speed TGV train collided with a regional express train in southern France on Thursday.

Among those badly injured were a baby, a 10-year-old boy, a woman and the driver of the regional express train.

The high-speed train carrying 178 people collided with the regional express, which had 70 passengers, near the town of Denguin, on the line between Pau and Bayonne in the south-west of the country, local officials said. The crash happened about 17 kilometres (10 miles) from Pau.

The worst casualties were in a "terrible state", a rescue worker said.

Two of them were airlifted to hospital, police told Le Figaro newspaper.

200 evacuated, 4 injured in New Jersey train derailment

At least 200 people have been evacuated from a train that derailed in New Jersey after colliding with a truck that was crossing the tracks. Four people are currently in hospital with minor injuries following the incident.

Erica Dumas, a spokesperson for the Port Authority of New York, told AP that the two front wheels of the train went off the rails after the collision Sunday. Dumas said the truck driver, the train conductor, one passenger and an engineer were in hospital receiving treatment.

Authorities are currently investigating what could have caused the incident, which took place as the Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) train was on its way to Newark from Harrison.

Earlier this year in May two Metro-North passenger trains collided with each other during rush hour in Bridgeport Connecticut, leaving dozens injured. As a result of the incident, authorities were forced to close the tracks to repair the damage.

Emergency officials are on scene at a train derailment that has blocked Kenaston Boulevard traffic in both directions.

A southbound CN freight train went off the tracks around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday north of McGillivray Boulevard near Kenaston Commons.

CN spokeswoman Emily Hamer said the derailment involved five cars carrying cement.

The train wasn't carrying dangerous goods and there were no injuries or environmental threats, Hamer said. The rail cars were tilted but didn't fall over during the derailment.

Crews were working to clear the tracks Wednesday evening.

Nearby resident Kyle, 17, who didn’t want to give his last name, said he heard a loud bang while he was in his backyard, ran out and saw the derailed train.

"It sounded like a big bang. It really got loud," he said.

Canadian Pacific Freight Train Derails in Saskatchewan

CP Says 24 Railcars Derailed, Causing No Injuries or Leakage

July 16, 2014 9:05 p.m. ET

TORONTO— Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. CP.T +0.88% said 24 railcars of a freight train carrying a mixed cargo that included gasoline derailed in Saskatchewan on Wednesday, causing no injuries or leakage.

The 89-car train was heading eastbound on the railroad's mainline in Saskatchewan and was carrying lumber, asphalt and gasoline, said Ed Greenberg, a spokesman with the Calgary-based railroad.

The incident is the third derailment of a major Canadian railroad in two weeks. On Thursday, a train operated by Canadian National Railway Co. CNR.T +0.76% carrying automobiles, carbon powder and empty fuel-tank cars derailed in eastern Ontario. On July 4, two crude-carrying cars on a CN train derailed in central Alberta. There were no reports of injuries or fire in those accidents.

The latest derailment occurred at about 2 p.m. MDT Wednesday near Moose Jaw, a small city in south-central Saskatchewan about 40 miles west of Regina.

Mr. Greenberg said that CP has several rerouting options in the Canadian province and isn't suspending service along its rail network.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada has dispatched two investigators to the site, a spokesman for the agency said. CP also is investigating the accident, Mr. Greenberg said.

Train derailments in Canada have faced heightened scrutiny amid regulators' moves to enhance rail safety in the wake of several fiery accidents in North America that involved crude-by-rail transport.

N.S. train derailment caused when track 'buckled'

WEST RIVER STATION, N.S. - The Cape Breton and Central Nova Scotia Railway has determined that a train carrying propane derailed last month in Pictou County when the track buckled.

The province's Transportation Department says the cause of the derailment is outlined in a report submitted by the railway earlier this week.

The department says the report determined the track buckled after a sudden and unusual fluctuation of rail temperature and accumulated steel stress in a section of track.

Six homes were evacuated as a precaution June 9 after seven cars went off the tracks in West River Station, including six that overturned.

Transportation Minister Geoff MacLellan says his department is satisfied with the railway's response since the derailment, including replacing a portion of track and performing a stress test on the rail line.

The government says the railway will also implement a number of preventative measures, including restricting train speed during certain hours in the summer and cancelling train operations in extreme heat.

MacLellan says Transport Canada inspectors hired by the department will keep a close eye on the railway to ensure it is doing everything it can to prevent a similar incident.

Bulgaria: Sofia-Varna Train Incident Leaves Motorman Dead It is unclear why the train left the rails on Saturday afteernoon, but the Interior Ministry says a probe is already ongoing. Photo by BGNES

One man died after a train traveling from Sofia to Varna derailed near the central Bulgarian city of Stara Zagora on Saturday, 15:17 EEST (13:17 GMT).

The victim was the train's driver.

Fifteen were left injured, two of them in a critical condition, authorities say. Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski, however, said the number their number could rise.

He also wrote on his Facebook profile he was closely following the developments and had sent Transport Minister Danail Papazov and other officials to the station where the events took place.

Those wounded were taken to the nearest hospital, according to the Bulgarian National Radio, which quotes official sources.

Most of them were over 43 years of age, and no children were among the injured. It is yet unknown why four carriages and the engine went off the track, but the reasons are under investigation, the Interior Ministry's Chief Secretary Svetlozar Lavarov declared.

The locomotive of the train crossing the south of Bulgaria spinned while derailing and hit the carriages behind it.

It was reported that the incident happened at the Kaloyanovets train station near Stara Zagora, where the composition had been divided, with some of the cars heading for the southern Black Sea city of Burgas.

Bulgarian State Railways (BDZ) head Hristian Krastev reported the track had recently undergone repairs.

A freight train carrying furnace oil from Patenga derailed at Sitakunda in Chittagong yesterday morning and leaked around 21,255 gallons of crude, most of which spilled into a canal.
The accidental spill from three tank wagons of the freight train poses serious threat to aquatic creatures in the canal water that flows toward the Bay.
The engine and six oil-laden tankers of the Dohazari Peaking Power Plant-bound train slipped off the track at Uttar Chhalimpur near Faujdarhat Railway Station around 6:30am.
"The derailment happened as the loco master violated the signal," said Abdul Hai, chief engineer of Bangladesh Railway (East Zone).

Oil-laden train derails in CtgPeople were seen collecting oil in their buckets from the canal, three to four kilometres away from the sea.
Md Javed, a local who was scooping up the split oil, said "I will sell the oil to a local shop to earn some bucks."  
Asked whether the oil spill could reach sea water through the canal, Salahuddin Aziz, chairman of 10 Chhalimpur union, said, "There is a possibility of the crude getting mixed with sea water.
"During the high tide sea water floods the canal and then draws back."
Dr Alok Pal, professor of geography and environmental studies in Chittagong University, said, "Fish feed on plankton found on water surface, which would be destroyed by such a large volume of spill."  
Jahir Alam, an assistant engineer of Dohazari Peaking Power Plant, said there were about 7,085 gallons of furnace oil in each wagon.

"Six wagons derailed and all oil from three wagons leaked into the nearby canal," said a senior railway official, preferring not to be named.
"It will take three to four days to assess the extent of damage caused by the derailment," Jahir said.
An intercity train with 500 passengers narrowly escaped a fatal accident on the route as the freight train was about to enter Faujdarhat Railway Station, violating the signal.

Udayan Express from Sylhet was approaching the station on green signal when the freight train was on the track, said Chandan Kanti Das, chief signal and telecommunication engineer of BR (East).
Sensing danger, the station master blinked red signal for the Udayan Express and its loco master managed to stop the Chittagong-bound passenger train, he added.
Rail communications between Chittagong and other parts of the country remained suspended for seven hours since 6:30 am following the derailment of the freight train at Sitakunda.

The railway authorities suspended the train's loco master Uttam Kumar Bhattacharya and assistant loco master Didar Hossain on charge of violating the signal, said Mozammel Haque, general manager of BR (East).
Two committees -- one led by BR (East) chief engineer and another by Chittagong Divisional Transportation Officer Md Zakir Hossain -- were formed to investigate the incident.
On July 30, 2013, train service on Chittagong-Dohazari route was disrupted after three oil tank wagons of a freight train derailed in Baruapara area of Boalkhali upazila in Chittagong.
