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.

Freight train derails and catches fire in central Sweden

Freight train derails and catches fire in central Sweden
A train carrying dangerous goods derailed and caught fire in central Sweden early on Thursday morning.

The 36-carriage train derailed by the station in Ludvika, Dalarna, bringing train traffic to a stop as ten of its carriages covered lay over five tracks.

"It's a long freight train and one of the carriages was on fire, with ten-metre high flames. The fire seems to have extinguished itself," Peter Persson, a local police officer who was on duty at the time, told TT.

"It will take a long time to clean up, according to the information I have. There is no other effect on traffic in the area," Persson said.

The alarm was raised shortly before 2.30 am, and it is still unclear what caused the derailment.

The train driver was not injured and has spoken to police, though he is not suspected of any wrongdoing. He told police that the train "bounced" and that it was a light on board the train which caught fire.

For the moment, there is no sign that any of the dangerous goods leaked from the train.

The accident has caused disruption to traffic between Borlänge and Hallsberg, Borlänge and Kil, and Västerås and Ludvika in both directions, according to the Swedish Transport Administration. There is no information regarding when traffic in the area will return to normal.

"Contact lines have been damaged and there's a derailment, so it could take a long time. I don't have a specific forecast, but it's a matter of days and maybe weeks," said Per Aronsson from the Transport Administration.

Trains have been replaced by buses on the affected routes.

Train derails, crashes into house in NW Atlanta

4:37 PM. EDT October 05, 2017

ATLANTA - A CSX train derailed early Thursday morning and crashed into a house on Andrews Street in northwest Atlanta.

Fire department officials said the train was moving 14 miles per hour when it derailed. Nine cars were completely off the train tracks and five were only partially off, totaling 14 cars.

"Naturally, when the train comes by it shakes the house," said DeAngelo Rivers Jr., whose father's home was destroyed by the derailment. "Today it was making a lot of noise, and then the train hit the house just as he was getting out of bed, and it pushed him toward the kitchen door.

"I'm trying to believe this is real."

Investigators said a train can derail at a slow speed if there's something wrong with the tracks. The train was some two miles long with a whopping 190 cars, providing tons of momentum, even at 14 miles an hour.

According to CSX Spokesperson Rob Doolittle, the train was traveling from Waycross, Ga., to Cincinnati, Ohio.

The cars were not carrying any hazardous materials, so further evacuations were not needed. According to Atlanta Fire, the train was transporting sand, rocks and dirt.

UP: Engine of Burhwal-Balamau Passenger Train Derails at Sitapur; No injuries Reported

Updated: September 18, 2017 11:18 PM IST
Lucknow, September 18: Engine of Burhwal-Balamau passenger train on Monday derailed at Sitapur, however, no casualties have been reported. The officials of railway and police are at the site. The reason for the train going off the track has to be ascertained.

This is the sixth incident of this month.

  • On September 17, three wagons of an empty goods train derailed near Dhupguri in Jalpaiguri district. No one was injured in the incident and the trains were running unhampered.
  • On September 9, an empty bogie of Sealdah Express derailed at Jammu railway station while it was being brought to the platform from the washing area. No one was injured in the incident.

The trains had derailed on September 7:

  1. Six wagons of a goods train derailed near Khandala, Maharashtra.
  2. Engine and Power car of Rajdhani Express derailed at Shivaji Bridge in the national capital.
  3. Seven coaches of Shaktipunj Express derailed in Sonbhadra district of Uttar Pradesh. No one was injured in the incident as the train had maintained a low speed, said Anil Saxena, a railway ministry spokesperson.

As per a report, the new railway minister Piyush Goyal has decided to recruit one lakh people in the ‘sanraksha shreynee’- that is the safety category. In an effort to reduce derailments the railway needs manpower besides technology and equipment.

Also, Railway Ministry will soon start a track renewal exercise with an aim to cut down on train derailments. A report of Economic Times suggested that around 2,000 km of track would be renewed by the end of the year.

The clean-up continues this afternoon, where a freight train transporting Toyota Tundras and Tacomas derailed on the South Side of San Antonio early Friday morning, causing a power outage for hundreds of people in the area.

The incident happened around 5 a.m. at Briggs Avenue and Quintana Road. The San Antonio Fire Department and San Antonio Police department showed up with a Hazmat crew and several trucks, which is standard procedure for a train derailment. None of the train cars were carrying hazardous material and no injuries were reported.

Rail yard workers were “pushing” or “shoving” between 10 to 12 train cars, then trouble started with a single runaway train.

San Antonio Fire Department Battalion Chief, Russell Johnson explained, “They were shoving cars. What they call shoving cars is when they are getting ready to pull them online. They will pull them apart and then push them together and make sure they are all hooked together. Somehow it got away from them and it started rolling towards the main track. It hit the derailment track.”

About 10 cars jumped the tracks and wrecked, striking a utility pole which caused a power outage for around 6,000 businesses and homes for a duration of about 4 hours. Power was eventually restored around 9 a.m.

Spokeswoman Melissa Sparks of Toyota said there were about 40 new Toyota Tundras and Tacomas aboard the train, and it's too early to tell whether any of the trucks were damaged.
