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.

No injuries were reported after 12 rail cars jumped the CN Rail Westlock Sub-Line just south of the Hamlet of Pickardville at approximately 9:30 a.m. Oct. 7.

According to CN Rail spokesperson Kate Fenske there were no dangerous goods spilled in the incident, only salt, grain and lumber.

Main access to the hamlet, which is Range Road 585, was closed until the early afternoon as crews worked quickly to open the line.

A large contingent of backhoes, bulldozers and assorted heavy equipment were dispatched to the site and were able to have the line open for train traffic by Saturday, Oct. 8.

“The guys have been working around the clock trying to get it cleaned up,” said Fenske Saturday, adding that the investigation win the derailment is underway.

She noted that as each investigation is unique, there’s no timeline as to when it will be completed.

The derailment follows an one near Camrose on Oct. 5, where eight cars left the track. No injuries or dangerous goods were reported in that derailment either.

According to the Transportation Safety Board’s website, as of Aug. 31 there have been 66 reported train derailments in Alberta this year, not including the two incidents last week.

This is the second derailment to occur within the borders of Westlock County this year — a train derailed near Westlock on Feb. 14 with no reported injuries or dangerous goods spilled.

There are approximately 310 industrial railways in the province, according to the Alberta Transportation website.

Under the federal Rail Safety Act, trains moving through areas with populations of 10,000 people or more have a maximum speed limit of 40 m.p.h. or 64 km/h. The speed limit for trains outside of populated areas is 50 m.p.h. or 80 km/h.

The 130-mile Westlock Sub-Line runs from Smith, through Westlock and terminates in Edmonton

A freight train incident in South Jersey, Tuesday morning, is being called minor derailment.

SKYFOX was over the scene in Paulsboro where Conrail said four cars of a CSX train slipped off the track between W. Jefferson and Monroe streets.


Freight train derails in Paulsboro, NJ  October 11, 2016
Four tanker cars of a freight train derailed Tuesday morning in Paulsboro.

No one was injured and nothing was spilled, officials said.

Three of the cars were carrying lube oil, and the fourth was empty, Conrail spokeswoman Jocelyn Hill said. The wheels on the cars came off the rails but the cars themselves remained upright, she said.

The derailment occurred around 11 a.m. on the Conrail freight line between West Jefferson and and Monroe Streets in the Gloucester County waterfront town.

The cause is under investigation. Initial reports indicate a bent rail was to blame.

"In the whole scheme of things here with train derailments, it was very minor," said Susan Jacobucci, Paulsboro's business adminstrator.

Paulsboro was the scene of a major derailment on Nov. 30, 2012.

That accident involved 82-car freight train crossing a swing bridge across the Mantua Creek.

As the train crossed the bridge, seven cars derailed, four of which fell into the creek. One car breached, unleashing 20,000 gallons of vinyl chloride, a carcinogen, into the atmosphere. The leak would eventually cause the evacuation of hundreds from their homes and businesses.

An National Transportation Safety Board investigation blamed human error and problems with the bridge for the derailment.

Residents, businesses, and first responders have filed civil suits against Conrail for the derailment.

A BNSF freight train derailed Thursday morning on a washed-out bridge near Ferryville, leaking alcohol and diesel fuel as a second night of heavy rains triggered flooding and mudslides.

Two locomotives and five rail cars left the tracks, according to the railroad.

One of the locomotives spilled about 2,500 gallons of fuel, with some making its way into the Mississippi River, said BNSF spokeswoman Amy McBeth.

McBeth said two of the derailed cars were empty tankers; one last carried ethanol and the other vegetable oil. The others were carrying wall board.

The crew was not injured but were transported to a local hospital as a precaution.

Officials from the DNR and the federal Environmental Protection Agency are responding, but access to the site is difficult because of damage from two days of heavy rains.

McBeth said high water levels in the Mississippi are preventing crews from deploying booms to contain the spill.

Mike Dagnon lives about a mile from the derailment on Rush Creek Road near Ferryville, which he said was covered with two feet of water, mud and a jumble of downed tress.

“I saw a fish swimming down the road,” Dagnon said. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Calgary Transit driver injured in CTrain derailment at Tuscany LRT station

 The driver of a Calgary Transit driver is recovering in hospital and crews are working to clean up after a CTrain went off the tracks Tuesday. Global’s Mia Sosiak reports.

The driver of a Calgary Transit CTrain was taken to hospital in serious condition after the train derailed at the Tuscany LRT station in the city’s northwest. The light-rail train crashed through the end of the track at more than 60 kilometres an hour.

A power pole and heavy weights that anchored the car pierced the windshield—just missing the operator—and leaving the front car totalled.

Dan Duplessis was one of those passengers. He said he first thought the train was just moving further up the platform, but then it “accelerated as if going to the next station” despite having arrived at the end of the line.

“The train rapidly came to a halt with a crashing sound, throwing me across the row of seats,” Duplessis told Global News. “Several of the round interlocking pieces were ripped up from the impact.”

Duplessis said he pushed the emergency help button and was advised by transit security to stay on the train until first responders arrived, which he said took about 10 minutes.

“Medics banged on the door and checked to see if we were in any immediate danger and told us to wait,” Duplessis said. “Firefighters manually opened the door from the outside, which was undamaged, and helped us out of the train.”

Calgary Transit spokesperson Ron Collins said the three-car train left the tracks northwest of the station just before 7 a.m. Tuesday. Its $4.5-million replacement cost will be covered by insurance, officials said.

“The train had continued on beyond Tuscany station – which is the end terminal station – for whatever reason, and then went through the fence just off of the tail-track beyond Tuscany station – and then derailed,” Collins said. The so-called “tail track” at Tuscany station is the longest in the city.

“It’s just a question now of trying to determine what happened here.” 

The driver, a woman in her 60s, was transported to the Foothills Medical Centre in serious but stable condition. Transit officials hadn’t spoken to her as of 2 p.m., as she was medicated due to her injuries.

EMS spokesperson Stuart Brideaux said paramedics arrived at the scene prepared to treat multiple patients. Only three passengers were on board and none were injured.


“I just wonder what happened,” transit rider Franco Frroku said. “Was it a malfunction of the actual train or was the driver at fault for it?”

Emergency crews respond to the Tuscany LRT station on Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2016 for a LRT derailment.

Calgary Transit is investigating the derailment, scouring CCTV footage from cameras at the station and looking for information related to the brakes in the train’s black box recorder.

“We have to look at a lot of things. We have to look at the condition of the vehicle, the condition of the track, signals, as well as the operator,” Calgary Transit’s acting director Russell Davies said. “We expect to have some findings fairly soon, but there’s nothing pointing a specific way just yet.”

There were delays to CTrain service while crews worked to repair the line. A large crane was on its way to help with the cleanup mid-afternoon.

“Shuttle buses will be used during the afternoon commute between Crowfoot and Tuscany stations.”

The Tuscany CTrain Station is located on Crowchild Trail N.W. near Stoney Trail N.W.

“While traffic is flowing in both directions on Crowchild Trail, there are major delays in the area,” the City of Calgary said in a statement. “Motorists are encouraged to consider alternate options.”

Calgary’s light-rail transit has been running since 1981 and has expanded over the years to connect the northwest, northeast and south sectors of the city to the downtown core. Unlike subway systems in other major cities, nearly all of the 53 kilometres of track are above ground.

Davies said there have been accidents over the years involving pedestrians and vehicles, but this one is out of the ordinary.

“I’ve never seen one of this kind of severity of our own equipment and involving our own staff.”
