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.

PHOTOS: Train Derails In NJ, Contaminated Soil Dumped Onto Tracks

The train’s cargo of soil contained lead and PCBs when it derailed in Essex County, according to reports.

November 22, 2015

A Norfolk Southern Train tipped off the tracks and derailed on Nutley on Saturday, spilling a load of contaminated soil and leaving a mess for local emergency workers.

According to the Nutley Police Department, the derailment took place around 3 p.m. on Saturday as the train was crossing at the intersection of Hillside Avenue and High Street.

When police arrived on the scene, they reportedly saw several cargo containers leaning hazardously off the tracks, with one container completely overturned, according to a NPD spokesman.

“It appears that the soil beneath the tracks gave way causing the train to tip,” Nutley police stated in a release.

No injuries were reported and there is no hazard to the public, police stated.

Multiple emergency response agencies worked the rest of the evening to upright the trains and contain any possible contaminant that may have spilled during the derailment, police said.

Islamabad: At least 12 people were killed and more than a hundred injured when a passenger train derailed on Tuesday in Bolan area of Pakistan’s southwestern Balochistan province, railway authorities said.

Published: 15:57 November 17, 2015

The engine driver and his assistant were among the dead, officials said. Brake failure caused the derailment of the Jaffar Express near Aaab-Gum area, about 75km from Quetta, they said.

The train was travelling to Rawalpindi, the garrison city adjacent to Islamabad. All carriages and the engine went off track, the state radio quoting police as saying. Railway officials said the train was carrying around 300 passengers.

Seventy wounded passengers were moved to a hospital at Mach while those with serious injuries were being moved to hospitals in Quetta.

A quick reaction force of Frontier Corps Balochistan and ambulances reached the site for the rescue operation, the military’s Inter-Services Public Relations said.

Two MI-17 helicopters of the Pakistan Army were also sent from Quetta, the statement said.

Pakistani TV footage showed several badly damaged train cars and rescuers pulling the injured from the wreckage. In a statement, the military said it dispatched a helicopter and ambulances to transport the injured to hospitals..

Rescuers were seen trying to pull the injured from the derailed cars.

“Among the dead so far confirmed, five are passengers, two drivers of the train and two members of the railway police,” Durrani said.

Train accidents are common in Pakistan, which inherited thousands of miles of track and trains from former colonial power, Britain.

The railways have seen decades of decline due to corruption, mismanagement and lack of investment.

In July, at least 17 people were killed when a special military train fell into a canal after a bridge partially collapsed.

Crude oil train derails in King of Prussia

Five cars of a train carrying crude oil derailed Friday morning at King of Prussia rail yard but no oil spilled, the railroad said.

The cars went off the tracks at Norfolk Southern's Abrams Yard on Henderson Road about 4:30 a.m., said Dave Pidgeon, a spokesman for the rail company.

The cars were carrying a heavy form of crude oil and crews are working to rerail them, he said.

As of early Friday afternoon, two cars were upright, two were leaning and one was on its side.

Pidgeon said nothing spilled or leaked in the incident.

The cause of the derailment remains under investigation. The incident happened inside the rail yard, so other rail traffic wasn't affected.

KiwiRail staff are working to clear a railway line in North Otago after a freight train derailed early today, leaving behind three wagons.

The train left Christchurch on an overnight freight service bound for Invercargill and lost the carriages in Wainakarua next to State Highway 1 and just south of The Mill House.

A spokeswoman for KiwiRail said the train derailed about 2am. Three wagons left the track, but the locomotive did not, and the driver was "fine", she said.

The wagons "the first three of the last six" on the 17-carriage train were not carrying any dangerous cargo, she said.

One was empty, one was carrying two empty containers, and one was carrying cement.

There was minor damage to the track.

Access to the derailed wagons was slowing the clean-up, but KiwiRail was hoping to open the track "before tonight".

This was the first derailment in nearly seven months, the spokesperson said.

KiwiRail was investigating the incident.

3rd train derailment in Wisconsin, 2nd in Watertown

A train derailed in Watertown on Wednesday, making this the third Wisconsin derailment in days, the second in Watertown.

WITI-TV, citing a Canadian Pacific spokesman, reports five train cars derailed at a low rate of speed as they were being moved. The cars stayed upright, and the tanks were not affected.

The incident happened around 400 feet west of the site of Sunday's derailment, during which crude oil was spilled and 35 homes were evacuated. Saturday's derailment in Alma resulted in ethanol in the Mississippi River.

The Canada Pacific spokesman said the public was not at risk during Wednesday's incident. The cars were re-railed in around 2 hours.

2nd train derails in Wisconsin in 2 days, spills crude oil

A Canadian Pacific Railway train carrying crude oil derailed Sunday and prompted some evacuations in Wisconsin, the second day in a row a freight train derailed in the state.

The eastbound CP train derailed about 2 p.m. in Watertown, in the southeastern part of the state. The railroad said at least 10 cars derailed, and some were leaking.

No fires or injuries were reported. CP was sending teams to the site.

"CP takes this incident extremely seriously," the railroad said in a news release. The company did not say how much oil spilled.

Federal investigators and hazardous material specialists are on their way to the scene, the Federal Railroad Administration said in a tweet.

Residents of about 35 homes were asked to evacuate around 4 p.m., said Donna Haugom, director of the Jefferson County Office of Emergency Management.

On Saturday, a freight train derailed near Alma in western Wisconsin, spilling thousands of gallons of ethanol. BNSF Railway said crews continued Sunday to transfer ethanol from the derailed cars and get the cars back on the tracks.

The BNSF train derailed at 8:45 a.m. Saturday about 2 miles north of Alma, a town along the Mississippi River. Some of the 25 derailed cars were empty auto racks and tanker cars.

BNSF said railroad crews stopped the leaks from five tanker cars and placed containment booms along the shoreline. One tanker released an estimated 18,000 gallons of ethanol, and the other four released an estimated 5 to 500 gallons each.

No one was hurt. BNSF said it expects the tracks to return to service Monday morning.
