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.

The train derailed just before 5 a.m. on Sunday, a CN spokeswoman said.

A Canadian National Railway train has derailed on the 97th Street and Yellowhead Trail overpass.

The eight empty rail cars derailed shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday morning while moving in the Edmonton yard, CN spokeswoman Kate Fenske confirmed in an email.

The cars were not carrying dangerous goods, she said, and there were no injuries as a result of the derailment.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation, and the trains are being re-railed, Fenske said.

CN crews remain on scene Sunday afternoon. A large gouge could be seen in one of the train cars, and one car appeared to be tipped over the 97th Street overpass.

Traffic through the area remains open.

At least 27 killed in Italy train collision

Trains collide in southern Italy 02:34

Story highlights

  • Collision happened late Tuesday morning in southeastern Italian countryside
  • Two trains collided head-on about 15 kilometers south of Adriatic Sea

(CNN)Two passenger trains collided head-on Tuesday morning in a rural area of southeastern Italy, killing at least 27 people, Italian news agency ANSA reported.

Pictures from the scene in the Puglia region showed both trains were on the same track about 15 kilometers (9 miles) south of the Adriatic Sea, apparently headed toward each other.
Firefighters inspect the wreckage of two trains after a head-on collision Tuesday in the Puglia region.
Images distributed by firefighters there showed the smashed remains of train cars and a large area of scattered, twisted metal at the impact site about 7 kilometers (4.3 miles) east of the city of Andria. More than 50 people were injured, ANSA reported. A hospital in Andria appealed to the public for blood donations for the injured.
One train was headed from Andria to Corato, while the other was coming in the opposite direction, ANSA reported.
The death toll was expected to rise, a medical official at the scene told CNN on condition of anonymity. The official said 22 bodies had been pulled from the wreckage, and one person died in a hospital.
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi promised a full inquiry to find out who was responsible. He met with officials in the region Tuesday afternoon and pledged support, he told reporters in Bari on Tuesday evening.
"My thoughts go to the families of the victims," he said. "We are together in this pain and despair."
The crash happened about 7 kilometers east of the city of Andria.
The state-run rail company FS Group offered condolences and said both trains were operated by the private company Ferrotramviaria SpA, which runs commuter rail services in the area.
"The employees of the Italian FS Group are close to the victims' families, the wounded and colleagues at Ferrotramviaria," the FS Group said.
Details on what led to the crash weren't immediately available.
Crumpled wagon cars are seen after the two commuter trains collided.
The wreck happened in a relatively remote area. Local authorities took to social media to ask for any doctors and medics in the area to go to the crash site to help the injured.
"It's not an area that's easily accessible. The closest highway is miles away," CNN contributor Barbie Nadeau said.

5 train cars derail in Texas, spilling chemical, injuring 2

Posted: Monday, July 4, 2016 12:24 pm | Updated: 4:01 pm, Mon Jul 4, 2016.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Authorities say five train cars overturned outside of San Antonio, spilling about 1,000 gallons of sodium hydroxide and prompting a temporary evacuation.

Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Monica Ramos said the derailment happened around 4 p.m. Sunday in an industrial area southwest of the city.

Ramos says the sodium hydroxide didn't cause fumes or residue. Two men inside a tug car that overturned suffered minor injuries and were treated on scene before being released. A nearby flea market was also temporarily evacuated.

Cleanup is underway of soil and vegetation contaminated by the chemical.

The rail line is privately owned by the oilfield services company Schlumberger. Ramos said the company is expected to pay for cleanup and investigate the incident.

The company did not return a phone message Monday.

Freight train derails in Selkirk, wheels torn away

Second derailment on stretch of rail line this week

CBC News Posted: Jun 30, 2016 12:31 PM CT Last Updated: Jun 30, 2016 12:31 PM CT

There is no word yet on what caused the derailment, the second one this week.

A train derailment in Selkirk, Man. on Wednesday evening has left a number of freight cars lying in ditches alongside the track, some with their wheels torn away.

It's the second time this week that a derailment has happened on that stretch of line, the first occurring on Monday, according to Kevin Crooks, who works at Kinetic Machine Works, a business that backs onto the tracks in the northwest corner of the city.

He described the scene from Wednesday as "a train-wreck, literally," saying there are some cars rolled over in the ditch "and a bunch of others all askew, just kind of piled up."

"There's a lot of wheels missing off them," he added.

Cranes were brought out Wednesday to remove some of the cars but an approaching storm forced crews to abandon the effort, Crooks said.

He estimates about 10 cars remain to be cleared at the scene.

There's no official word on what the cars were hauling, though Crooks has heard it was a concrete powder mix. Selkirk Redi Mix Ltd, a supplier of concrete mix has a plant on the other side of the tracks from Kinetic Machine Works.

The rail line is owned by CP Rail and operated by Lake Line Railroad. A CP Rail spokeswoman declined to comment and referred calls to Lake Line Railroad.

No one from Lake Line has yet returned calls from CBC.

Crooks said the ground in the area where the derailments happened is saturated after several days of rain, and he thinks it could have played a part in the crash.

"It's kind of shocking that they had two in a week," he said.

Selkirk Mayor Larry Johannson said he wasn't aware of the derailment until CBC News called.

Selkirk is located about 30 kilometres north of Winnipeg.

10 injured after rollercoaster derails

The two adults and eight children were all being treated at local hospitals, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) quoted Police Scotland as saying.

One adult and one child are in stable condition and three children are expected to be allowed home later, said the report.

The accident involved the Tsunami ride at the M&D’s park near Strathclyde Park in Motherwell. Six ambulance crews and a specialist operation team, as well as six fire engines were on the scene after being called on Sunday afternoon.

Police Scotland revised down the number of the injured from its initial estimate of 11 and confirmed there were nine passengers on the ride at the time, while eyewitnesses claimed the carriage smashed into a toddlers’ ride when it hit the ground, as reported by the online Scotsman newspaper.

"On arrival it became clear a series of five gondolas connected on a train on the Tsunami ride have detached from the rails, struck the superstructure and then struck the ground." Chief Inspector David Bruce was quoted by BBC as saying.

"As a result of this accident, 10 people have been injured, two adults and eight children," he added.

The M&D’s theme park announced on its website that the theme park is closed due to an incident.

"A serious incident occurred at M&D’s today involving the tsunami rollercoaster. We have all emergency services on site to assist. The theme park is closed until further notice," said the spokesperson for the theme park.

There are also messages and videos on social media about the incident of the rollercoaster carriage crash with children and adults on board, saying "it’s like something out a horror film".

Scottish First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon said:"My thoughts are with everyone involved in this terrible incident at M&D’s theme park, especially those injured."

Earlier, Police Scotland declined to make any comment on the incident on the phone when contacted by Xinhua.
