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.

Family lucky to be alive after rail horror

http://www.lancasterguardian.co.uk/news/local/family-lucky-to-be-al...

Two couples have spoken of their holiday horror after their train travelling at 100mph crashed whilst they were sleeping.
Sue and David Williams and Karen and Peter Turnbull were ripped from their sleep when their train derailed on its way to Cape Town.

The holidaymakers said “they are lucky to be alive” as they crawled their way out of their cabin into the dust filled night.

Sisters Sue and Karen clung onto each other whilst their husbands on the top bunks scrambled for their lives as their carriage flipped and bounced off the track.

The Prasa train was heading for Cape Town from Johannesburg, in South Africa, but the 27-hour journey was cut short at midnight when it crashed leaving 60 people injured.
Sue and David, from Bare, and Karen and Peter, from Lancaster, all suffered minor injuries including dust inhalation and brusing.

David, 51, suffered a head injury after the force of the crash catapulted him towards the ceiling leaving him needing stitches. He said: “We felt lucky to be alive, it took a few seconds to realise what was going on.

“When it skidded with the dust it was really difficult to breathe. The four of us were in a sleeping cabin, it was like being in a washing machine, bed pieces and our things all over the place.”

Sue, 46, said “It made it worse because it was pitch black, it felt like ages until we got out but it must have only been about 30 minutes.”

Train services on Chittagong route resume after six-hour halt

 August 25, 2015

Bangladesh

Rail communications on the Chittagong route have resumed six hours after a train derailed at Sitakunda on Tuesday morning.

Two Dhaka-bound trains left Chittagong Railway Station after one side of the tracks was cleared around 11am, Station Master Abul Kalam Azad told bdnews24.com.

Inter-city ‘Bijoy Express’ hit a trailer truck, stranded on the tracks, at Barhbkunda in the morning, killing one person.

The engine and four coaches of the train, which was coming from Mymensingh, derailed, snapping Chittagong’s rail links with the rest of the country.

Four trains were stranded at the Chittagong Railway Station while five more, coming to the port city, were forced to stop at stations at that time.

The situation forced many passengers at the Chittagong station to make alternative arrangements to travel to their destinations.

Railway’s East Zone Divisional Manager Mofizur Rahman said one of the two tracks had been cleared.

“It’ll take about a day to clear the other track,” he told bdnews24.com.

Goods train derail in Kathua, disrupts rail traffic

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/Goods-train-derail-in-Kath...

KATHUA (J&K): Three bogies of a goods train derailed here this morning leading to disruption of traffic on the Jammu-Pathankote railway route.

The train was on its way from Delhi to Jammu and derailed soon after crossing the Kathua railway station, a police officer said.

"Three bogies of the good train derailed, and there was no loss of life or injury to anyone in the accident as the train was moving at a slow pace," he said.

Several trains on the Jammu-Pathankote railway line had to be stopped at several places following the derailment of the goods train, he said.

Senior DGM Jammu RN Mina along with technical team reached the spot to restore the railway traffic, he said.

The incident took place early in the morning and the reason seems to be a technical snag.

Crews are working to remove a train that derailed Monday afternoon in Spring.

Six cargo cars ended up just feet away from spilling into the 2600 block of West Hardy.

Grain was tossed everywhere, and the rear locomotive car was left on its side, leaking diesel. Officials say the engineer wasn't hurt.

"As I look at the caboose, it is like wobbling," Watson said.

That wobble quickly turned into a tumble.

"It was going it just like dominoes effect," she said.

Sources close to the investigation say Union Pacific is looking into wether excessive heat caused the tracks to expand.

Crews now working into the night, cleaning up and hoping to get things back on track by morning.

India floods derail trains, killing 21 people, as focus turns to safety

Wed Aug 5, 2015 6:34am EDT

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Two express trains derailed into a river in central India overnight after flood water weakened the tracks, killing 21 people, state officials said on Wednesday, reigniting criticism about lack of safety on the world's fourth-largest rail network.

Divers using gas cutters pulled out trapped passengers and 300 had been rescued by early morning, officials said. Dozens were rushed to hospital.

Twelve coaches of the Kamayani Express to Varanasi from Mumbai derailed near Harda in the central state of Madhya Pradesh just before midnight. Six coaches of the Janata Express derailed around the same time, the railway ministry said.

"The prima facie cause of the incident is stated to be flash floods due to heavy rains," Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu told parliament.

Heavy monsoon rains and the tail-end of a cyclone have killed more than 100 people across India in flooding, landslides and building collapses in recent days.

But a former railway minister said if the tracks had been maintained, the accidents could have been avoided.

"It's totally unacceptable. It's a symptom of a deep-rooted cancer in the railway system," Dinesh Trivedi told reporters.

Train wrecks killed more than 25,000 people on India's overloaded and outdated railway network last year alone.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi this year massively increased spending to modernize the network, but improvements will take years.

The head of the railway board, A.K. Mittal, told reporters a flash flood struck the area just minutes before the trains came through, disturbing the tracks. "Ten minutes back at this spot, train movement was normal. There was no problem."

Television images showed train coaches smashed into each other and tilted into the river. Some police and villagers had clambered on top of the coaches lying on their side.

"It shook like a tree in storm. We thought something had hit the train," said Santosh Singh, a passenger.

India's state-run railway network, the fourth largest after the United States, China and Russia, carries some 23 million passengers each day. "The two train accidents in Madhya Pradesh are deeply distressing. Deeply pained over the loss of lives," Modi tweeted.

JOHANNESBURG - A train derailed between Booysens and Crown Mines stations, leaving approximately 150 passengers injured.

"We responded and on our arrival we found more than 100 patients. As far as we know, there are no fatalities. Most of the injures are moderate to minor, including some serious patients."

ER24 paramedics are treating neck and back injuries as well as major and minor fractures. Injured passengers are being taken to nearby hospitals.

“Rescue vehicle and personnel are on the scene. They are helping over a hundred people lying on the platform, with minor to serious injuries,” said Meiring.

Metrorail says it’s too early to say what caused the accident. The company has arranged buses to ferry commuters meant to be using the same route.

CN says several cars on an intermodal train have derailed near Bowmanville, Ont

A CN freight train derailed near Bowmanville, Ont., at 2:15 p.m. ET on Saturday, causing Via Rail to suspend its trains in both directions between Toronto and Ottawa, as well as Toronto and Montreal, for the rest of the day.

Via Rail said service is expected to resume Sunday morning.

Canadian National Railway spokesman Jim Feeny told CBC News the cars were on a westbound train. He said there do not appear to be any injuries. Seven cars were affected by the derailment and are blocking rail infrastructure. It is not known what the cars were carrying. 

Via said it is organizing alternate transportation for passengers who were already en route aboard trains. For all other people travelling Saturday evening, the trains are cancelled.

Bowmanville is near Oshawa, and about 63 kilometres northeast of Toronto.
