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 rear two wagons of the one-kilometre long train came off the tracks and overturned in Lewisham, south-east London, at around 5.30am on Tuesday.

Tracks appear to be bent and broken after the incident, which caused huge delays and prevented passenger services from operating through the area for the rest of the day.

The line is not expected to be reopened before Thursday.

Network Rail engineers remain on site working to return the wagons to the tracks so the train can be moved.

Southeastern services from Hayes to London Charing Cross are unable to stop at Lewisham, and no trains are serving New Eltham, Mottingham or Lee.

Trains between Tunbridge Wells and the capital will run to and from London Victoria, rather than London Charing Cross.

Passengers delayed by at least 30 minutes were urged to claim Delay Repay compensation, which will be doubled by Southeastern.

Andy Derbyshire, chief operating officer for Network Rail’s South East route, said: ‘Our number one priority is to get the freight train moved and passenger services up and running again.

‘Once the derailed carriages have been moved, we’ll be able to complete our inspections and finalise the repairs needed to the tracks and signalling equipment, including how long the work will take.

‘We’re doing everything we can to get this situation sorted quickly and will be working round-the-clock to get services back to normal for passengers.’

Richard Dean, train services director at Southeastern, said: ‘We’re working hard to ensure that we can keep passengers moving.

‘We’re diverting some services to Victoria and Blackfriars, and where we cannot run trains we have put in place ticket

  • File (AAP)
  • At least 13 people were killed and around 100 injured after an express train derailed in southeastern India in the latest disaster to hit one the world's largest rail networks.

    Seven coaches and the engine of the Jagdalpur-Bhubaneswar express derailed at 11 pm local time on Saturday (1730 GMT) near Kuneru railway station in the Vizianagram district of  Andhra Pradesh state.

    "Thirteen people are confirmed dead and scores are injured," J. P. Mishra, a spokesman for East Coast Railways told AFP. 

    "The injured have been shifted to two nearby hospitals," he said.

    Officials from the railway and local government were carrying out rescue work and relief trains had been sent to evacuate passengers, he said.  

    He did not immediately give a cause for the derailment. 

    The train was travelling from Jagdalpur city to l Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha state, when it came off the track, nearly 160 kilometres (100 miles) from Visakhapatnam, the nearest city to the accident site.

    Rail traffic on the coast line has been suspended.

    The incident comes nearly two months after 146 people were killed when a passenger train was derailed in Kanpur, northern India.  

    Last month two people were killed and dozens injured after another train derailed also near Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh state. 

    India's railway network is still the main form of long-distance travel in the vast country, but it is poorly funded and deadly accidents occur relatively frequently.

    In 2014, an express train ploughed into a stationary freight train, also in Uttar Pradesh, killing 26 people.

    A 2012 government report said almost 15,000 people were killed every year on India's railways and described the loss of life as an annual "massacre".

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government has pledged to invest $137 billion over five years to modernise its crumbling railways, making them safer, faster and more efficient

Train derailment in El Segundo: Tankers off tracks (Jan 12)
http://mynewsla.com/crime/2017/01/12/train-derailment-in-el-segundo...


Several tanker train cars derailed and overturned in El Segundo Thursday, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or a hazardous materials release.

The derailment was reported about 2:30 p.m. near Douglas Street and Chapman Way, according to El Segundo police.

Firefighters were at the scene taking readings to check for possible leaks.

Some areas around the tracks appeared to be flooded, but it was unclear if the derailment was rain-related and there was no immediate word on what, if anything, was inside the tankers.

A report from the scene indicated they were possibly carrying liquid petroleum.

The derailment prompted the suspension of rail service on Metro’s Green Line between El Segundo and Redondo Beach and buses were requested to shuttle passengers between the stations.

Normal Service on the Green Line resumed about 5 p.m., according to Metro.

Train derails at Conoco Phillips refinery

3:49 PM. CST December 29, 2016

ROXANA, ILL. - Seven cars from a Norfolk Southern Rail train have derailed at the Conoco Phillips refinery in Roxana.

It happened around 9:20 Thursday morning.

Representatives from Norfolk Southern say the train had 63 cars. Seven of those cars derailed with two remaining upright and five cars turned on their sides.

Conoco Phillips officials say one gallon of sulfuric acid spilled, but that had no impact on operations, no environmental impact and no material was spilled in any waterway. Officials say there were no injuries.

They say the train derailed as it was leaving the plant, though it's unclear what caused the accident. This part fo the track leads only to and from the plant, and the crash did not affect other train traffic.

As of 3:45 p.m., three of the derailed cars — including the one that leaked sulfuric acid — have been put back on the track.

The rail company's policy is to not comment on what is being carried unless there is a spill, for security reasons.

New Britain,Connecticut(Dec6) Pan Am freight train derailed outside of a shopping plaza. Cleanup could take days. Officials have been monitoring for possible gases from multiple cars following those were carrying odorless propane and chemical residue http://www.necn.com/news/new-england/Train-Derails-in-New-Britain-4...

The cleanup process after a train derailed in New Britain on Tuesday could take days, city officials said.

Police said a Pan Am freight train derailed outside of a shopping plaza at 150 Columbus Boulevard.

New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart said an on-duty police officer was in the CVS parking lot when they saw seven train cars tip

over and onto the side. No one was hurt, but the location is causing headaches for the city.

“It is quite the traffic nightmare in the area. This is a main thoroughfare of the city,” Stewart said.

The cars that toppled were carrying construction debris that spilled out onto the street, but multiple cars following those

were carrying odorless propane and chemical residue, which created another concern for officials.

Pan Am and the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection responded for cleanup. Officials have been

monitoring for possible gases but there have been no reports of the air being unsafe..."
