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.

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.

Train Derails Near Red Deer, Alberta (April 21)

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada is investigating the derailment of 10 freight cars, about 30 kilometres south of Red Deer, Alta., early this morning.

Three of the cars jacknifed at around 1 a.m. MT and came into contact with a second freight train next to the main track at Campaign Station, John Cottreau, manager of TSB media relations, told CBC News.

Cottreau said there were no injuries, and no dangerous goods were involved in the accident, which happened on the Red Deer subdivision, a rail line between Calgary and Red Deer.

He said some of the cars contained residue of glycol. Cottreau could not provide further details, but said the substance is not classified as a dangerous good under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act.

The cause of the derailment is not known. A TSB investigator has been sent to the scene.

Train Derailed by Landslide (Scotland, April 27)

Two people were rushed to hospital yesterday after a train was derailed by a landslide thought to have been caused by heavy rainfall.

All 17 passengers on board the two-carriage train were evacuated after it came off the tracks near Clarborough Tunnel in West Portal, Retford, in Nottinghamshire, just after noon.

Two of the passengers, and the train driver, received minor injuries when the train was struck by debris from the landslide and were taken to hospital.

The rest were taken by taxi to nearby stations to continue their journeys.

A BTP spokesman said it is thought the landslide was caused by the large amount of rain that has showered the county.

Not a crash as such but certainly could have caused one. More to this than meets the eye I suspect.

Major unexplained, head-on train crash in The Netherlands.  Remember when train crashes were rare and generally explained?  Yes, that was before Planet X arrived in the inner solar system.

Trains crash head-on in Amsterdam; nearly 125 reported injured

Rescue workers evacuate injured passengers at the scene of a train collision near Amsterdam on Saturday.


AMSTERDAM -- Almost 125 people were injured, many seriously, when two Dutch commuter trains crashed head-on in Amsterdam on Saturday [April 21, 2012], police said.

There were no immediate reports of fatalities, but of those injured, 13 suffered major injuries while 43 or 44 were badly injured, a spokesman said. About 70 suffered minor injuries.

A trauma helicopter was used to bring the injured to hospital, a spokesman for railways group NS said.

The trains did not serve Schiphol international airport, the NS spokesman added, but the accident disrupted airport train service.

Some people were lifted from the wreckage by cranes while others were led away from the crash site in protective wraps to dozens of waiting ambulances, while police cars and fire trucks stood by.

"We heard a loud bang. I went outside and saw people on the street in panic," a woman at the scene told broadcaster AT5.  "We then saw what had happened. Quite quickly there were emergency services at the scene. It was managed well. Some people had head wounds, others were limping."...  http://worldnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/04/21/11327272-trains-cra...

Massive Train Derailment In Abbeville County (South Carolina)

The tanker carrying hazardous materials has been moved from the site of a massive train derailment in Abbeville. 28 cars derailed Thursday morning. Crews are working around the clock to remove the cars. By early afternoon Friday, only nine cars remained.

Officials tell 7 On Your Side the train car carrying methanol, a highly flammable chemical, has been moved from the crash site, and crews will be working Saturday to offload the methanol from the tanker.

No hazardous chemicals leaked during the de-railment. 50 people are still evacuated from their homes.

For the second night, the residents are staying in a hotel. Officials say CSX Railroad is paying for that hotel stay.

But it's unclear who will pay for response. CSX would not respond to our requests for that information. City, county and state officials are keeping track of expenses, and they will hand the bill over to CSX. Derrec Becker with the South Carolina Emergency Management Division says, “We have a private company involved, and they are responsible for a lot of the cost. But we're still having to foot the bill for a significant portion of this response operation.”

7 On Your Side pressed CSX to find out more about the cost of response and who will pay. The railroad company will only tell us they have no estimate and no cause of the derailment A spokesperson for the railroad company says it could take weeks to determine a cause.

Emergency officials say they do not know when the evacuated residents will be allowed to return home.

Updated: March 9, 2012, 3:30 p.m.

South Carolina Emergency Management and Abbeville leaders say 50 residents remain displaced Friday morning.

Workers will begin to offload the methanol out of the tanker this afternoon. That could take six hours.

We're told 18,000 gallons of propanediol was either offloaded from the leaking car or pumped out of the ditch where it leaked,

CSX is responsible for cost of clean-up. All government agencies tell 7 On Your Side they will hand the bill for response over to CSX. Four units from the State Transport Police have been requested to assist with response.

Crews are on the scene working around the clock to clean up a chemical spill following a Thursday morning train derailment in Abbeville.

Nearby homes were evacuated after more than two dozen CSX train cars derailed around 5 a.m. at Redd and Hagler Streets, near Long Branch Street.

The evacuation has since been lifted for most and residents have been allowed to return to their homes, but are asked to stay indoors until further notice.  The only residents not allowed back in include Redd and McBride streets, and Shop Hill Drive.

They are being put up at a Greenwood hotel.

Abbeville Fire Chief Mason Speers tells 7 On Your Side one of the derailed cars is leaking propanediol, a chemical used to make antifreeze for recreational vehicles.

The cause of the derailment has not yet been released.

Train derails near Wolseley, Sask.

March 4, 2012

Canadian Pacific Railway is investigating a train derailment that occurred near the community of Wolseley Saturday evening.

According to information from the RCMP and CP, emergency crews — including Indian Head RCMP, Wolseley fire crews, Grenfell EMS and CP officials — were called to the scene of a train derailment involving an eastbound Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) train at about 7:45 p.m.

A CP spokesman said on Sunday that the train had been travelling east from Moose Jaw to Winnipeg on the main line when the incident occurred near the Wolseley grain elevator. While Kevin Hrysak said CP isn’t commenting on a potential cause pending the outcome of the investigation, RCMP had reported the train experienced problems with the brakes.

The resulting incident caused 11 cars to leave the tracks. There were no injuries to either of the two crew members on board or any members of the public, and no concerns about hazardous materials or any other environmental issues. Nine of the cars were carrying canola and wheat seed while the other two were empty.

The east access into Wolseley was blocked temporarily as a result but was reopened soon afterward. The incident hasn’t impacted vehicle travel since then and Hrysak said trains were able to be rerouted around the scene while cleanup occurred.

Hrysak said cleanup began Saturday night and was expected to take until sometime Sunday night. It was hoped the line would be reopened by late Sunday night.

He was uncertain as to how long the investigation would take.

Southern Poland train crash leaves 14 dead

Two trains have collided in southern Poland, leaving 14 people dead, local officials say, and 50 hurt.

The accident occurred on Saturday evening on the Warsaw-Krakow mainline at the small town of Szczekociny, according to Polish TV.

Two express trains, one of which was on the wrong track, collided head-on, a senior railway official said.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk arrived at the scene early on Sunday morning, with three other cabinet ministers.

"This appears to be one of the most serious railway accidents in recent years," Transport Minister Slawomir Nowak told the TVN24 news channel.

Some passengers remain trapped in the wreckage, police say. Helicopter ambulances from Warsaw and Wroclaw are helping to take the injured to hospitals.

"The rescue is difficult and complicated," firefighter Jaroslaw Wojtasik told Polish television.

"The damage to the wagons is huge. We have contact with victims. We are approaching very cautiously."

Engineering works

The accident occurred at 21:15 (20:15 GMT), when a train travelling north from Przemysl to Warsaw collided with a southbound train from Warsaw to Krakow.

Map

Scheduled engineering works were taking place on one track at Szczekociny station at the time of the accident.

The Krakow train was on the wrong track, Andrzej Pawlowski, a member of the board of the state railway company PKP, told the TV station TVN24.

Three coaches are reported to be especially damaged, and the rescue operation is focusing on finding passengers there.

The three coaches were "completely destroyed - like a concertina", one eyewitness told the Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper.

Another passenger estimated that his train was travelling about 120km/h (75 mph), when it started braking very sharply.

"Then we felt a powerful impact, and we were thrown about the compartment," the passenger told TVN24.
