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.

First responders in Philadelphia prepare for oil train accidents

Over the last year, a sharp increase in accidents involving trains carrying crude oil has prompted emergency planners in Pennsylvania to make sure first responders are prepared.

http://www.newsworks.org/index.php/homepage-feature/item/74056-firs...

Officials from at least seven government agencies, the railroad CSX and the refinery in South Philadelphia recently responded to a faux fiery train accident on a rail bridge in the city's downtown.

While there was no real emergency, the scenario was based on a minor derailment that happened in January that left six tanker cars intact, but leaning across the Schuylkill Arsenal Bridge.

The Philadelphia Fire Academy buzzed with activity as officials wearing badges from a variety of local, state and federal agencies made radio calls and worked in units to evacuate residents within a half mile of the hypothetical accident scene.

A picture of a crude oil tanker engulfed in flames was projected on a large screen at the front of the room. A coordinator with a microphone called out new details and told officials to stand by for more information.

It was one of several training exercises that have taken place in Pennsylvania and across the country as an increase in crude-by-rail shipments has also led to an increase in accidents. According to a spokesman for CSX, a similar training is planned for Bucks County.

    Fire officials say a freight train ran off the track in Maspeth, Queens.

    They say a diesel tank ran off the rail at Eliot Avenue and 60th Lane, rupturing the tank and spilling around 100 gallons of fuel.

    "We had a diesel tank derail. Ran out of rail actually. It ruptured a 900-gallon diesel fuel tank," said FDNY Chief Marc Cuccurullo.

    "We are so used to all the trucks coming down this street and tractor trailers and the train passing by, that you know, you hear a bang once in a while, you don't think anything of it. But once the fire engines started coming, then we realized it was something," said Susan Ingino, who lives in the area.

    Officials say the cause is still under investigation, but they are looking at a possible switch malfunction.

    An FDNY deputy chief says the spill poses no threat to the surrounding community.

    No injuries were reported.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014, 7:28 PM - A train derailment east of Clair, Saskatchewan has halted highway traffic in both directions and prompted evacuations, the RCMP announced Tuesday.

The accident occurred about a kilometre east of the community of Clair, about 190 km east of Saskatoon, at around 10:40 a.m. local time -- prompting the RCMP to issue an evacuation of about 50 residents in an 8-kilometre radius.

Children in a nearby school were being kept indoors.

According to CN, the train was carrying about 100 cars of mixed freight and about 26 derailed.

At least eight of the derailed cars were carrying toxin materials, including hydrochloric acid and petroleum distillates.

Black smoke billowed from the scene of the accident. Emergency crews on the scene say it could take hours to extinguish the fire. One witness told local media that flames were at least 30 metres high.

No injuries have been reported but Highway 5 has been closed in both directions.

The cause of the accident is unknown, but Weather Network meteorologist Brian Dillon says there was strong winds in the area at the time, with sustained winds around 35 km/hour and gusts up to 50 kilometres per hour.

Train derailment, other disruptions throw CR off track

Commuters had a tough time on Dussehra day as the crisis in Central Railway's (CR) Mumbai division continued with a series of disruptions, including a suburban train derailment, which threw services out of gear for most part of the day on Friday. 

There have been more than five derailments and several disruptions along the line in the past month. The railways have attributed all of this to "maintenance arrears". 

Trains were disrupted earlier on Friday due to the pantograph of a local train breaking and getting entangled at Kurla station. There was also a problem at Matunga station, where another train was halted. As the pantograph was restored, the seventh coach of a suburban train derailed near Kalyan station's Platform 1, blocking four lines. 

The train was moving at less than 15kmph when the derailment occurred. This further led to disruptions, throwing services out of gear during the evening. 

A CR spokesperson said the derailment affected services for only 48 minutes. "Services were affected between 5.02pm to 5.50pm. No one was injured," a CR spokesperson said. 

CR general manager Sunil Kumar Sood said cancelling the mega-blocks during the festive season was the reason for the spike in such incidents. "We have very small window for maintenance of our assets at this time. This is leading to problems," he said. 

While a suburban train at Dombivli and a goods train at Kurla derailed on September 30, another local train derailed outside Mumbai CST on September 14. The empty Punjab Mail train derailed at Mumbai CST on September 10 and the LTT-Puri Express derailed at Vidyavihar the same month.

Goods train derails in Hammanskraal

2014-10-04 11:45

Johannesburg - A goods train transporting sulphur in plastic bags derailed close to the Jubilee Mall in Hammanskraal, north of Pretoria, on Saturday morning, Tshwane emergency services said.

"We are evacuating [people in the area] about 200m away from the train tracks because one of the plastic bags is [smouldering]," spokesperson Johan Pieterse said.

"It is not a flame but the plastic bag is smouldering and there is smoke. The smoke could be dangerous if inhaled."

It was unclear if shoppers in the mall were evacuated also.

No injuries were reported so far.

He said the train had eight carriages in total and derailed at around 9am.

The train tracks were closed and Transnet was on scene.

"It is going to be a long process and our specialist task force are on the scene," said Pieterse

2 CN trains derail in Alberta within 24 hours

1st derailment was near Vermilion, 2nd near Wildwood

CN is facing criticism from an Alberta mayor after two of its freight trains derailed in the province in less than 24 hours.

On Friday afternoon, a train derailed near Wildwood, Alta., about 120 kilometres east of Edmonton. CN said 15 cars carrying coal went off the tracks around 3:30 p.m. MT. On Thursday night, up to 20 CN train cars carrying peas derailed near Vermilion, Alta.

Yellowhead County Mayor Gerald Soroka is frustrated that CN did not quickly inform him about the derailment in Wildwood.

“This is one of the things that we’ve had concerns with in the past dealing with CN,” Soroka said, adding that sometimes it has taken as long as 12 hours before CN has been provided details about derailments.

“We want to make sure our residents are safe and our first responders are safe,” Soroka said. “Without CN communicating that to us, we have no idea the dangerous situation that [first responders] are going into.”

As of 6 p.m. on Friday night, Soroka still had not heard from CN. He found out about the derailment from a staff member who drove by the scene.

Jennie Maerz, who owns an ice cream shop in Wildwood, said CN needs to inform the town whenever there has been a derailment.

“It’s rather worrisome,” she said. “Luckily [our councillor] said there was nothing that would be a danger to us, but it’s kind of scary to have train derailments when you live very close to the track.”

No injuries, says CN

CN spokesman Jim Feeny said there were no injuries in either derailment. Both trains were not carrying dangerous goods.  

TSB investigators were sent to the site at Vermilion. The train was crossing a secondary highway at the time of the derailment, causing a temporary closure. Vermilion is about 200 kilometres east of Edmonton.

Train derails, blocking two major streets in town

Posted: Wednesday, September 24, 2014 4:00 pm | Updated: 7:46 pm, Wed Sep 24, 2014.

LOGAN – A representative of the Indiana & Ohio Railway has confirmed there was a minor derailment of three train cars in Logan Tuesday night.

According to Chuck Logan, general manager with the railway, a train delivering material to Melvin Stone Company on California Avenue derailed at approximately 8:45 p.m. Tuesday night.

“It was a relatively minor incident and no one was injured,” stated Logan in a phone interview with The Logan Daily News.

At this time, the incident is under investigation and Logan said it is uncertain what happened to cause the derailment that closed East Front and East Second streets.

At noon Wednesday, the train track crossing at East Front and East Second streets was cleared, but the roadway remained closed.

“We are working to get the road open so the residents of Logan are not inconvenienced any longer than necessary,” Logan continued.

Logan stated a contractor from West Virginia was enroute to remove the derailed cars and once that is done, railroad workers would be able to repair the tracks and get everything back online.

“I estimate everything to be done within a day or two,” Logan added.

No one from Melvin Stone would comment other than to say the train was headed to their site to unload
