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.

A landslide has caused a freight train to derail, blocking the West Highland railway line, following fierce storms and torrential rain.

The 24-wagon train came off the tracks between Corrour and Tulloch just after 7pm yesterday.

A spokeswoman for British Transport Police said the driver, who was winched to safety and taken to hospital, was badly shaken by the incident but was not injured. No one else was hurt.

ScotRail's Caledonian sleeper service from Fort William to London Euston, which was due to run overnight, has been cancelled.

The service will remain at Fort William to provide accommodation for passengers. Trains between Crianlarich and Mallaig are also suspended.


Network Rail said the remote location would make it difficult to recover the derailed train and it is not known when services will resume.

Rail services have also been affected on both of the main lines in and out of Scotland because of the weather.

East Coast Trains said it had cancelled all services between Newcastle and Edinburgh following floods in Cumbria and near Newcastle and a landslip near Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Union Pacific coal train derails near Junction City

A Union Pacific coal train, on a run from Colorado to Memphis, TN has derailed near Junction City, KS. Around 5PM Wednesday, 21 coal cars of the 105 car train left the tracks, and some tipped over on their sides. There were no injuries.

Union Pacific Crews will work through the night to clear the tracks and get them open again. Union Pacific Spokesperson Mark Davis estimates that the tracks might be clear and open again in 24 hours.

Mr. Davis could not tell Kansas First News if the coal cars were new or older models. The age of the cars makes a difference in how much coal each car can carry. The loads run anywhere from 75 tons to 100 tons for each coal car.

Mr. Davis also told Kansas First News that the coal on the ground is now called "Dirty Coal" and can not be delivered to an electric company. That coal is piled up on the side of the tracks and a contractor comes in to collect it. Dirty Coal would then be taken and sold to some kind of foundry whose requirements do not include Clean Coal.

Saudi city passenger train derailment, passengers hurt

RIYADH: A Saudi passenger train heading from the kingdom's eastern city of Dammam to the capital Riyadh derailed on Wednesday, causing injuries but no deaths, a senior transportation official said.

Hamad Abdel Qader, deputy chief of operations at the Saudi Railways Organization, told AFP that the train derailed "100 kilometers (62 miles) east of Riyadh."

He said there were "no deaths in the accident ... but several" people were wounded, including one man who was evacuated to Riyadh for medical treatment.

The train was traveling along Saudi Arabia's only passenger rail link, some 400 kilometers (250 miles) long, that connects Riyadh and Dammam, a coastal city in the vast desert kingdom's oil-rich Eastern province.

Trains Collide in Oklahoma Without Explanation, 3 Missing in Fireball Explosion (June 24) -

Two freight trains collided head-on and exploded into flames on Sunday in Oklahoma, sending billowing black smoke into the air and leaving three Union Pacific employees missing and possibly dead, authorities said.

There was no explanation yet on why the two trains were traveling toward one another on the same track about a mile (1.6 km) east of the panhandle town of Goodwell, in an unpopulated area near the Texas state line.

About 50 volunteer firefighters from five nearby towns had been fighting the fire, which engulfed three locomotives and about 10 rail-cars, since the morning collision but had not been able to extinguish the flames by late afternoon.

“The diesel fuel in those engines just doesn’t want to go out, and the rail cars are all tightly packed,” said Harold Tyson, emergency management director of Texas County, Oklahoma.

One Union Pacific employee escaped injury but three others were missing and possibly dead, Tyson said. A Union Pacific spokeswoman confirmed three crew were reported missing.

Passenger Train Derails Near Miami Airport (May 13) -

Passengers on board a train that connects to Miami International Airport had to exit on the track after three cars derailed.

A MIA Mover train derailed while on its way from the terminal to a car rental center at Miami International Airport Sunday morning. In all, two cars went off the tracks with 12 passengers on board. Two passengers suffered minor injuries

Monday morning the MIA Mover remained out of service.

On Sunday, authorities responded to the scene and evacuated all of the passengers on board. A 7News viewer sent in a photo of a mother and her children being helped out of a car by a police officer.

Two passengers suffered minor injuries as the cars tilted to one side.

The derailment caused delays for some airport passengers who wanted to return rental cars, forcing them to miss their flights. "The entrance into this area was closed down, so you could not return a car," said Alex Saavedra, a passenger who missed his flight. "So we kept riding around, looping, looping around. So I call them, and I said, 'If this continues, how much longer? Do you have a contingency plan?' He wouldn't answer me. He went around and around and then he hung up on me."

The airport bused passengers between the rental center and the terminal, but that resulted in long lines and backaches for travelers. "The problem is more lifting, carrying and dragging the bags," said Fulvia Baldera, who is taking the bus. "This way, we could have gone straight with the bags to the gate."

Airport Officials believe the cause of the derailment was due to a guide wheel issue. "I have been told that there was a guide wheel that came off, and that's the reason that the train tilted to one side," said Marc Henderson, a spokesperson for Miami International Airport.

Crews brought in a crane and worked for hours before managing to remove one of the cars off of the track. It was placed on a flatbed truck and taken away for repairs.

The MIA Mover was seen back up and running by 6 p.m., Monday.

CANOE – Residents of this small community are used to rumbling of trains only 10 metres from their homes, but what they heard in the darkness of Monday morning was something else.

"There was a loud bang," said Brian Mortensen, who lives about three houses back from the CP Rail tracks.

"At the same time you hear screeching metal and twisting up."

Only metres away from quaint homes that line Shuswap Lake just east of Salmon Arm were 11 rail cars, most of them dumping their load of coal on the grass and on 75 Avenue Northeast in Canoe.

The black material was tracked up and down the road by emergency and clean up vehicles.

CP Rail spokesman Kevin Hrysak said westbound coal train derailed at 5:30 a.m. Monday. Locomotives remained on the track and there were no injuries.

"This happened at the tail end of the train."

Eleven cars left the tracks, eight of them spewing coal on and around the rail line. One of the trains hit a rail storage shed, which was completely taken apart by crews with heavy machinery within a few hours. Rail cars were smashed and twisted.

The train hit a fire hydrant and crews were on hand to restore water service to residents. That was expected by 4 p.m. Monday.

Janice Ellis and Wes Carlson, who live only 10 metres from the tracks, where they sandwiched between the trains and lake, said they saw CP Rail workers check a section of track immediately in front of their house frequently during the past month.

"They were there every day," Carlson said.

They checked it out themselves several days ago and saw a hockey puck-sized piece of steel missing from one track. They wondered if that caused the accident.

Hrysak said CP Rail won't speculate on the cause, which will be investigated internally as well as by regulatory and safety agencies.

CP said the derailment caused only minimal delays on lines, as the rail company was co-operating with CN Rail to use alternative routes.

"I don't think we'll see any trains for four or five days," Carlson, surveying the trackside wreckage.

Another neighbour, Eko Dance, said he was awoken by a tremendous "bang," which he immediately knew was a train that left the tracks.
