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.

Train Derails and Leaks Dangerous Chemicals in Superior

A Train Derailed and Spilled Chemicals in Superior

POSTED: 05:48 PM CDT Oct 25, 2016 

SUPERIOR, Wisc 

No injuries were reported as the result of the spill, and no residents had to be evacuated but the four car derailment did close a portion of state Highway 35 for several hours while a number of area fire departments responded.

Crews arrived at the derailment site just before midnight last night.

It is still unclear exactly what caused the train cars to go off the tracks but a coupler on one of the cars punctured a derailed tanker, causing a chemical leak.

That tanker started leaking octene, which is a very flammable liquid.

The leak was happening at a rate of around 6 gallons per minute until emergency crews were able to contain it.

Darryl Fiegle, the Superior Fire Chief, said "They've been doing an excellent job working hard getting this cleaned up as soon as possible without interfering with everyone's daily routine."

When crews arrived on the scene they first set up a perimeter to establish a safe area. They then called in the local hazmat team. As far as when things will be back to normal, officials do not know.

Fiegle said, "That's up to the railroad crews. It could be anywhere between twelve hours to three days. It depends how well they get chemicals cleaned up."

At this hour, crews continue to work on scene.

We are told people should not worry about any danger from the chemical leak but everyone should stay away while the clean up continues.

We will keep you updated as we learn more.

Crews are cleaning up after a train carrying nine grain cars and two locomotives derailed in British Columbia's Fraser Canyon this afternoon. 

It happened at approximately 11 a.m. PT across from Saddlerock Tunnel on Highway 1, five kilometres north of the community of Yale, B.C.

Several grain cars ended up in the Fraser River in the accident which appeared to have been caused by a small landslide.

The cars are owned by CP Rail, but the track belongs to CN.

CN spokeswoman Kate Fenske says there are no injuries, nor were any dangerous goods involved. She says equipment is being brought in to remove the cars and begin a cleanup. 

The extent of the damage is unknown. There are no estimates available on when the rail line will reopen.

No injuries were reported after 12 rail cars jumped the CN Rail Westlock Sub-Line just south of the Hamlet of Pickardville at approximately 9:30 a.m. Oct. 7.

According to CN Rail spokesperson Kate Fenske there were no dangerous goods spilled in the incident, only salt, grain and lumber.

Main access to the hamlet, which is Range Road 585, was closed until the early afternoon as crews worked quickly to open the line.

A large contingent of backhoes, bulldozers and assorted heavy equipment were dispatched to the site and were able to have the line open for train traffic by Saturday, Oct. 8.

“The guys have been working around the clock trying to get it cleaned up,” said Fenske Saturday, adding that the investigation win the derailment is underway.

She noted that as each investigation is unique, there’s no timeline as to when it will be completed.

The derailment follows an one near Camrose on Oct. 5, where eight cars left the track. No injuries or dangerous goods were reported in that derailment either.

According to the Transportation Safety Board’s website, as of Aug. 31 there have been 66 reported train derailments in Alberta this year, not including the two incidents last week.

This is the second derailment to occur within the borders of Westlock County this year — a train derailed near Westlock on Feb. 14 with no reported injuries or dangerous goods spilled.

There are approximately 310 industrial railways in the province, according to the Alberta Transportation website.

Under the federal Rail Safety Act, trains moving through areas with populations of 10,000 people or more have a maximum speed limit of 40 m.p.h. or 64 km/h. The speed limit for trains outside of populated areas is 50 m.p.h. or 80 km/h.

The 130-mile Westlock Sub-Line runs from Smith, through Westlock and terminates in Edmonton

A freight train incident in South Jersey, Tuesday morning, is being called minor derailment.

SKYFOX was over the scene in Paulsboro where Conrail said four cars of a CSX train slipped off the track between W. Jefferson and Monroe streets.

Freight train derails in Paulsboro, NJ  October 11, 2016
Four tanker cars of a freight train derailed Tuesday morning in Paulsboro.

No one was injured and nothing was spilled, officials said.

Three of the cars were carrying lube oil, and the fourth was empty, Conrail spokeswoman Jocelyn Hill said. The wheels on the cars came off the rails but the cars themselves remained upright, she said.

The derailment occurred around 11 a.m. on the Conrail freight line between West Jefferson and and Monroe Streets in the Gloucester County waterfront town.

The cause is under investigation. Initial reports indicate a bent rail was to blame.

"In the whole scheme of things here with train derailments, it was very minor," said Susan Jacobucci, Paulsboro's business adminstrator.

Paulsboro was the scene of a major derailment on Nov. 30, 2012.

That accident involved 82-car freight train crossing a swing bridge across the Mantua Creek.

As the train crossed the bridge, seven cars derailed, four of which fell into the creek. One car breached, unleashing 20,000 gallons of vinyl chloride, a carcinogen, into the atmosphere. The leak would eventually cause the evacuation of hundreds from their homes and businesses.

An National Transportation Safety Board investigation blamed human error and problems with the bridge for the derailment.

Residents, businesses, and first responders have filed civil suits against Conrail for the derailment.

Local TV channel Ennahar said one of the two conductors is dead, quoting the Civil Defense, and reported the trains were running between Algiers and Thenia.

Injured passengers are being transported to hospital in Boumerdes. 

Photos and footage from the scene show passengers and first responders trying to free trapped passengers from the wreckage.

A BNSF freight train derailed Thursday morning on a washed-out bridge near Ferryville, leaking alcohol and diesel fuel as a second night of heavy rains triggered flooding and mudslides.

Two locomotives and five rail cars left the tracks, according to the railroad.

One of the locomotives spilled about 2,500 gallons of fuel, with some making its way into the Mississippi River, said BNSF spokeswoman Amy McBeth.

McBeth said two of the derailed cars were empty tankers; one last carried ethanol and the other vegetable oil. The others were carrying wall board.

The crew was not injured but were transported to a local hospital as a precaution.

Officials from the DNR and the federal Environmental Protection Agency are responding, but access to the site is difficult because of damage from two days of heavy rains.

McBeth said high water levels in the Mississippi are preventing crews from deploying booms to contain the spill.

Mike Dagnon lives about a mile from the derailment on Rush Creek Road near Ferryville, which he said was covered with two feet of water, mud and a jumble of downed tress.

“I saw a fish swimming down the road,” Dagnon said. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”
