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.

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

It’s unclear what caused a train to go off the tracks near Old Spanish Trail and Produce Row in the Third Ward Monday evening.

The locomotive and second train car came within a few feet of the overpass before resting on its side.

A spokesperson for BNSF Railroad told Local 2 the locomotive engineer was not hurt, but she was shaken up.

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.

CP Rail crews are busy doing clean up after a train derailed in the Big Eddy late Wednesday night.

The derailment took place just west of Highway 23 South as the train was heading west from Revelstoke at about 11:15 p.m on Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Several train cars could be seen lying on the banks of the track as crews cleaned up the mess on Thursday morning.

Salem Woodrow, a spokesperson for CP Rail, said in an e-mail that four cars derailed.

"There were no injuries, no public safety issues and no environmental concerns," she wrote. "We expect to resume train operations later this afternoon."

The derailed cars were intermodal shipping containers. Woodrow said she did not know their contents but there were no hazardous materials in the cars and nothing was spilled.

Chris Krepski, a spokesperson with the Transportation Safety Board, said it was the second through fifth car on the train that derailed.

"The TSB didn't deploy an investigator to the site but we are following up with the company to gather some further information," he said.

Rob Girard, Revelstoke's fire chief and emergency program coordinator, first learned of the derailment when he was contacted by the Times Review Thursday morning. He said CP Rail had not reported the incident to him, a fact that has him concerned.

"We want to go out and look. We should know about it," he said. "That's pretty major in our community. We want to know, especially in light of what's been going on in terms of train derailments."

Girard attended the scene and said five containers derailed and that they were either empty or carrying hay. The discrepancy between Girard and CP Rail's numbers is because one car was carrying two containers.

He said he was preparing a report to council to let them know about the situation. The city also wasn't notified about a 2010 derailment near McDonald's and a 2011 derailment in Albert Canyon alongside the Illecillewaet River upstream of Revelstoke.

"The city doesn't take this kind of stuff lightly," he said.

Woodrow said the lack of notification was because there were no injuries, public safety issues, or environmental issues as a result of the derailment.

"We have our own emergency protocols which were immediately enacted and all safety precautions and measures were taken as we responded to the situation," she said.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation.
