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 coal derails in downtown Paris; sewer line could be compromised

PARIS, Ky. (WKYT) - Crews have been working to clean up for more than 12 hours now after a train derailment. It caused some train cars carrying coal to fall into a Bourbon County creek.

Paris police think the ground gave way beneath the tracks, causing the derailment in downtown Paris Monday morning. But CSX officials say the cause of the derailment has not yet been determined.

It was a 100-car coal train, but the CSX train lost three of its cars when four of them derailed. As of 6 p.m., one of the cars was still in Stoner Creek and two of them had been removed. The CSX train was traveling from Toledo to Virginia.

"The track is built on what's called a high wall," said Bourbon County Sheriff Mark Matthews. "And it's probably 100 years old or older and just gave way."

Crews and officials from CSX, R.J. Corman, emergency management, environmental protection agency, and emergency response teams along with first responders have been out there for hours and hours since the train derailment happened at about 3:30 a.m.

After learning two people were on the train at the time but no one was hurt, their focus has been the clean-up process.

"One car is in the creek. They're going to try to drag it across the creek and bring it out on the other side at some point," said Sheriff Matthews. "That seems to be what their plan is."

The sheriff says they won't know how much damage there is to the sewer line below the cars until they are moved.

Right now, crews on scene are worried raw sewage is possibly dumping into Stoner Creek. For the EPA, coal is not a concern, but it is a water quality violation so it will be removed.

The R.J. Corman Railroad Group has been heavily involved in removing the cars and coal from the creek. Two divisions are working on scene out of Columbus, Ohio and Huntington, West Virginia.

"The biggest concern is two things. The first being the coal that has gone into the water. The Kentucky Department of Water will be able to take care of any concerns with that as far as what needs to be done with it. We also have a main sewer line that has possibly been compromised on the cliff side," said Paris Fire Department Battalion Chief Jeff McFarland.

The sheriff tells me no drinking water has been contaminated in Paris because it is up stream. There are worries of the spill contaminating places down stream like Cynthiana, but that has not yet been determined.

The sheriff says he's been told the track will be rerouted around where it caved in and trains should be running through there by Tuesday.

Police tell us the Main Street bridge over Stoner Creek has been closed for now so crews can move equipment in and out.

Officials with CSX say they are still assessing the damage. They also added that they regret any impact this event may have on the city of Paris and appreciate the quick reaction of first responders.

REGINA — A CN train has derailed near Raymore, leaving 33 cars off the track.

One of those cars was carrying hazardous goods but is upright and nothing appears to be leaking. No injuries were reported. No one has been evacuated from the town or other nearby residences.

That car was carrying isopropanol — a colourless, flammable alcohol used in adhesive compounds, disinfectants, cleaning products and toiletry products.

According to the town’s Emergency Measures Organization, there is no immediate threat to the town, located 115 kilometres north of Regina on Highway 6.

A hazardous goods specialist from CN is travelling to the scene to assist with the cleanup. There is no indication yet as to how long cleanup might take. 

The derailment occurred at 9:46 a.m. about three kilometres west of the town on CN’s main line. Others trains scheduled to travel that line will either be staged in CN yards or rerouted to its north line.

Motorists can expect delays on Highway 15 adjacent to the derailment.

The two-locomotive mixed freight was pulling 135 cars in all en route from Winnipeg to central Alberta. The other cars that derailed were carrying cars, steel and canned goods among other items and one was carrying mineral oil, which is not considered hazardous

Train derails in Otter Tail County, Minn.

BLUFFTON, Minn. – Emergency responders are on the scene of a 32-car train derailment near Highway 10 just northeast of here, law enforcement officials said Monday.

Otter Tail County officials said 32 cars carrying sugar, lumber and other nonhazardous materials derailed at about 7 Monday morning on the Burlington Northern line northeast of Bluffton, near Highway 10.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s office and the Minnesota State Patrol are on the scene.

No one’s been hurt, but a hazardous materials team from the Twin Cities is en route to the scene to confirm there’s no danger to the public.

Some of the train cars that derailed were empty, said a county spokesperson.

Motorists on Highway 10 between Wadena and Bluffton may encounter intermittent lane closures and possible delays as railroad crews access the site of a derailment, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said.

The lane closures will be necessary for crews to move equipment in and out of the derailment site.

Track reopens in Lake Louise after rail car hangs off bridge over river


By The Canadian Press
November 29, 2014 - 6:26pm

LAKE LOUISE, Alta. — A train derailment in downtown Lake Louise, Alta., left a rail car hanging over the edge of a bridge across the Pipestone River on Saturday.

RCMP say all five of the cars on the Canadian Pacific train that left the track early Saturday morning were empty and that no chemicals were spilled.

There were no reports of injuries.

Railway spokeswoman Breanne Feigel says the derailed cars last contained sulphur.

Feigel says there's no word yet on what caused the train to derail.

She says the derailment has been cleared and the track is now open.

"We take all incidents like this quite seriously," Feigel said, noting that police, transportation officials and Parks Canada staff were all notified.

Police say the incident happened while the train was moving slowly past a transfer station.

They say a mechanical issue with one of the cars is thought to have caused the derailment, and that there was no indication of criminal activity.

Railroad cars derail near Feather River in Plumas Co.

Corn, grain spills down canyon

UPDATED 8:09 AM PST Nov 26, 2014

Calif. —Crews are cleaning up corn that spilled down a canyon and into a river when a freight train derailed in rural Northern California, near Highway 70. LIVECOPTER3 PHOTOS: TRAIN DERAILS IN PLUMAS COUNTY A train with 12 railroad cars filled with grains derailed Tuesday morning near Highway 70 in Plumas County. MORE Watch report: Train derails in Feather River Canyon Union Pacific Railroad spokesman Aaron Hunt said 11 or 12 of the train's 106 cars came off the tracks a little past 3 a.m. Tuesday in the Feather River Canyon, near the town of Belden in Plumas County. LiveCopter3 photos --Train derails in Plumas County The train -- headed from Nebraska to the Central Valley -- had an engineer and conductor on board, but they were not injured. The train was not carrying any hazardous material, Hunt said. The cause of the crash is under investigation. Crews were expected to be at the site all night trying to clean up the spilled corn and clear the tracks. The rail line does not carry passenger trains. Hunt said Union Pacific can reroute freight trains as necessary. The same tracks serve as a designated route for oil trains that take crude oil to refineries -- which worries some environmental groups. "When you hear about a derailment, even if it's just corn, you can’t help but imagine, what if it was Bakken crude?" said Stacey Geis, the managing attorney at Earthjustice. The derailment, lawmakers said, is a good example of why there needs to be more safety when it comes to transporting the crude oil -- and better training for local emergency personal, who may have to respond to an oil train derailment. Assemblyman Roger Dickinson helped pass a bill that does just that. "I think this (derailment) is why we have been concerned to make sure that track inspections are increased -- that the proper equipment is used in terms of rail cars," Dickinson said. Union Pacific track safety is a top priority. Throughout the past 10 years, UP has reduced derailments by 22 percent. "We are constantly working at Union Pacific to keep trains on the tracks, and we have a robust track inspection process in place which really has helped us to minimize derailments," Hunt said.

BREAKING NEWS: Dramatic fire forces evacuation of London's Charing Cross station after 'loud screech and big bang' when train pulled into platform

  • Fire started around front carriage of train which had pulled into  
  • Jacob Lovie, 22: 'There was this screech, bang and smoke everywhere'
  • Authorities said electrical fault was suspected cause - and no injuries
  • Station is main terminal for trains from Kent and south east London
  • Delays of more than two hours as trains diverted to other main stations

One of London's main railway stations was evacuated this morning after a  out on a train.

Passengers were ordered to leave Charing Cross after a 'screech and a bang' in the front carriage of the 10.55am departure to Robertsbridge, East Sussex, as it pulled into platform six.

Five fire engines were sent to the scene as passengers screamed and ran for the exit. No one was hurt, despite the driver being in the locomotive at the time.

Officers were able to deal with the fire quickly, but it also caused smoke damage to a live wire and  next door.

Marketing worker Jacob Lovie, 22, was waiting for a train to London Bridge when he heard what sounded like an explosion.

'I didn't see anyone hurt but there was a big bang and it was still on fire afterwards. It looked as though the fire was more on the platform and the building around it than the actual locomotive.

'The staff were clearing everyone out very quickly so it hit people more when they got outside the station and everyone was like "woah". There was one woman who looked really shaken up.'

The six-platform station between Trafalgar Square and the River Thames is a main terminal for trains from Kent, Sussex and south east London and handles almost 40 million passengers a year.

Rail operator Southeastern said there were delays of more than two hours on some services as they were diverted to other stations, including London Bridge and Victoria.

Charing Cross London Underground station was closed for 15 minutes but has since reopened. 

The mainline station remained closed until after midday and at that time a Southeastern spokesman could not  when it would re-open.

He also could not comment on claims that the train had hit the buffers. 

A Southeastern statement at 1pm said: 'Due to a fire at a station at London Charing Cross, train services running to and from this station may be cancelled, delayed or revised. London Charing Cross will not be served.

'An estimate for the resumption of normal services will be provided as soon as the problem has been fully assessed.'

A London Fire Brigade spokesman told MailOnline: 'There was a fire reported on a train at 10.52. Five fire engines were in attendance and the fire is now out on the train but we are dealing with the smoke damage to the hotel next door.'

Two Trains Derail Near Casselton, ND

video in link

Two trains have derailed near Casselton, North Dakota.  The calls to the Red River Regional Dispatch Center started coming in just after 5:30 p.m. The Cass County Sheriff's Office Deputies, Casselton Fire and Ambulance were dispatched.

A Casselton firefighter confirms with Valley News Live they are responding to 3549 153rd Avenue SE in Casselton, which is right next to the Tharaldson Ethanol Plant. County Road 23 is blocked by train cars. 

The Cass County Sheriff's Office says they believe the two trains involved are BNSF and both were traveling at very low speeds. The train going eastbound was hauling lumber and the train going west had empty oil tankers. Approximately 25 cars were derailed between the two trains.

No injuries or fire have been reported as of 6:30 p.m. Propane tanks on BNSF property were hit during the derailment, but do not appear to be compromised.
