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 derails in Dexter

Friday, July 25, 2014


Fourteen southbound Union Pacific freight cars, including an LP gas tanker, derailed about 3 a.m. Thursday in Dexter.

At 7 a.m., Dexter police, the Dexter Fire Department, Stoddard County sheriff's deputies and the highway patrol were sent near the Tyson Foods plant on the east end of the city while railroad crews and Dexter Fire Chief Don Seymore performed air-level testing to determine whether there was an immediate danger to nearby residents.

The train derailed in close proximity to a residential area.

At 7:45 a.m., word was received the air was clear.

Union Pacific crews from St. Louis were in the area by daylight and at least one plane carrying additional crew members approached about 7:15 a.m.

The location of the derailment was near County Road 717, but wreckage could be seen just north of Tyson's plant in east Dexter.

Alaska tourist train halts runs after derailment

AP 6 hr ago By MARK THIESSEN of Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A vintage rail company that hauls hundreds of thousands of tourists every year along the route of the historic Klondike Gold Rush has suspended operations while it investigates a derailment that injured nine people.

The derailment occurred during the Wednesday afternoon run of the White Pass & Yukon Route tourist train, which goes from Skagway, Alaska, into Canada.

There were few immediate details of what happened, but railroad President John Finlayson said the train derailed as it reached the White Pass Summit.

The derailment involved two vintage locomotives and four passenger rail cars, the company said in a written statement Wednesday night.

The National Transportation Safety Board was informed of the accident, but it wasn't immediately clear if rail safety personnel would investigate, state officials said.

Medical workers went to the scene, where responders outnumbered the injured, said Jeremy Zidek, a spokesman for the state Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management.

Initial reports had as many as 12 people injured.

Power was restored to the train, and it brought everyone back to Skagway, about 100 miles northwest of Juneau, railroad officials said.

The injured were taken to a clinic in Skagway, said Buckwheat Donahue, tourism director for the municipality. Some already had been released before 6 p.m., approximately three hours after the derailment.

Coast Guard planes and other air ambulances were on standby in case they were needed to transport the injured, but that didn't appear to be necessary, Donahue said. Most of the people on the train suffered "scratches and bruises," he said.

Bartlett Regional Hospital in the state capital was told to prepare for as many as 25 victims, Juneau radio station KTOO reported. That number was later downgraded before the warning was canceled.

The train is a popular tourist attraction, taking passengers on a three-hour, 40-mile roundtrip tour out of Skagway. It climbs to 2,865 feet at White Pass Summit before it turns around and heads back, Finlayson said.

He said the White Pass Summit trip is the railroad's most popular, offering passengers the views they were promised on an Alaska vacation: mountains, glaciers, waterfalls and even glimpses of the trails used by miners hoping to make it rich in the 1898 gold rush.

Donahue said four large cruise ships were in town Wednesday, swelling Skagway's population of 927 by 10,000 people. There were an additional thousand independent visitors in town, he said.

Up to seven train trips were canceled after the derailment, leaving many people with about four unscheduled hours. The railway said it would suspend operations to allow the investigation to proceed, and would run trains again when it could assure the safety of its passengers.

"We're doing our very best to try to gather information as quickly as possible," Finlayson said.

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.

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.
