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.

MORAN, Kan. — Firefighters continue to battle a blaze in southeast Kansas that erupted when 32 cars of a Union Pacific train derailed.

A 23-miles stretch of U.S. 59 is closed after the derailment early Monday about 5 miles south of Moran. No injuries were reported.

Union Pacific spokesman Mark Davis said the train, traveling between Kansas City and Fort Worth, Texas, included three cars that contained ethalene, a liquefied flammable gas. They started a fire that was being fed by plastic pellets in other cars, he said.

He said rail traffic will be diverted to other lines until cleanup is complete, and he didn't know when that would be.

As a precaution about three homes near the rural accident site were evacuated. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

A freight train has been derailed in southwest Germany between German Freiburg and the Swiss city of Basel, leading to a toxic spill.  The accident disrupted traffic on one of the busiest railway lines leading into Switzerland.

The crash spilled a large amount of oil tar and chloroacetate. These substances are highly flammable, and threaten human health. Complete evacuation was carried out within a 500 meter radius of the crash site. Some 300 people were forced to leave homes and jobs. No injuries were reported.

The exact causes of the disaster have not yet been determined.  Movement along the Freiburg-Basel section will resume no earlier than Saturday.

Around 5:30 a.m. today, a MAX train experienced a switch problem at the exit point from TriMet’s Eastside rail yard – Ruby Junction, located at E 197th and Burnside. An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the problem. The two-car train was headed westbound out of the yard, and the trailing car was directed to go east, causing the car to come off the track several inches

To isolate the train so crews could safely begin working on the problem, overhead power in the entire yard was turned off. Sixteen trains were unable to leave the yard on time. These trains were scheduled to leave Ruby Junction to serve on three lines: Blue, Green and Yellow. The disruption affected service across the system and continues to, primarily on the 1-205 portion of the Green Line and Blue Line service east of Gateway Transit Center.

Around 6:30 a.m., power was restored to the yard, and crews were able to manually throw switches so the backed-up trains could leave the yard. Moving the trains onto the alignment took significant time. Riders experienced significant delays – up to an hour – while trains returned to regular schedules.

Shuttle buses were immediately deployed to serve customers between E 172nd Ave and Cleveland Ave stations since Blue Line trains scheduled to head east were not able to make those trips. Shuttle buses were in service until 9:30 a.m. due to significant gaps in service.

MAX service the rest of the day is not expected to be impacted.

Due to rail route disruption, four trains including Haridwar-Ajmer Holiday Special, Amritsar-Jaipur Express, Jammu Tawi-Ajmer Superfast and Haridwar-Ahmedabad Mail were diverted.

Four other trains including Hisar-Jaipur Fast Passenger (Up and Down) and Bhiwani-Mathura (Up and Down) were cancelled between Rewari-Bandikui and Rewari-Mathura Junction routes respectively.

Sources said goods trains started running on the Alwar track recently after the doubling work was completed and inspected by the railway authorities. Divisional Railway Manager of NWR, Jaipur, GC Budhalakoti, visited the spot to inquire about the situation and has ordered an inquiry in the incident.

NWR officials said that the wagons were removed from the track after which it was repaired and rail traffic was restored before Shatabdi passed from the track at around 11 am.
