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.

2nd train in week derails in NYC; disrupts commute

NEW YORK — A train has derailed in New York City and disrupted the evening commute for the second time in a week. No injuries were reported.

The Long Island Rail Road and New Jersey Transit say an Amtrak train slipped off the rails at the Sunnyside train storage yard in Queens Thursday. Both railways were reporting track changes and delays up to 30 minutes at Penn Station because of the derailment.

An Amtrak spokesman could not be reached for comment.

Two cars of a New Jersey Transit train derailed Tuesday as it was leaving Penn Station and heading into the tunnel under the Hudson River.

Authorities were forced to shut down the tunnel, disrupting train traffic throughout the Northeast. The train was finally cleared and the track repaired around noon on Wednesday.

Second train derails near Denison

Denison, Iowa -- Two Union Pacific train cars derailed Monday night near Denison close to the same location as the major derailment a little over a week ago. Union Pacific Spokesman Mark Davis told Carroll Broadcasting this morning that two cars derailed around 6:15. They were part of a train carrying coal from Wyoming to Illinois. Both stayed up right and nothing was spilled. The other tracks remained clear and train traffic was diverted as much as possible to those tracks. Crews were able to get the cars back on the rails around 3:00 Tuesday morning. The cause of the derailment was found to be a broken axle on one of the cars. Union Pacific crews are repairing 600 railroad ties that were damaged. They hope to have the tracks repaired and operational by late today or early in the morning.

Update: NJ Transit hoping for smoother commute Wednesday

The Record

NJ Transit officials are hoping for a smoother commute Wednesday morning following a train derailment that sent commuters scrambling for alternative routes into and out of New York on Tuesday.

Two cars on a 10-car train derailed around 8 a.m. shortly after leaving Penn Station. The trains were using the north tube, which carries trains out of New York.

An estimated 300 people – none of whom were in the derailed cars – were moved to another train, and there were no injuries, said Penny Bassett Hackett, spokeswoman for the transit agency.

Travel updates

NJ TRANSIT is operating limited service on the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast line Tuesday evening, and will continue to route Midtown Direct trains to and from Hoboken Terminal.

NJ Transit rail tickets and passes will be honored on NJ Transit buses, private carrier buses and PATH trains at Newark, Hoboken and New York for the remainder of the day.

For advisories and other travel information, visit:

The north tube was shut down and all NJ Transit and Amtrak trains – which share a pair of tunnels in and out of the city – were restricted to the south tube.

The derailed cars remained inside the north tube after the evening commute. NJ Transit planned to use a crane to retrieve them overnight. Bassett Hackett said the agency did not want to remove the car during the commute and create more delays. Normal service is expected to resume in time for today’s morning rush, she said.

NJ Transit canceled several trains on both the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line on Tuesday to minimize the use of the single track, but delays of up to 90 minutes tested the patience of customers, many of whom had to hustle to catch the PATH to Hoboken.

Passengers used social media to vent about the delays. After getting an NJ Transit notification about the delays, one Twitter user wrote, “YEAH! @NJT_Advisory is delayed this evening too. Woo hoo! Consistency is a good thing. But not in

Swiss train derails, eight hurt

 

Eight people were injured Monday when a regional train derailed in the north-eastern Swiss canton of Aargau and hit a freight locomotive, a Swiss Federal Rail spokesman told AFP.

The regional train bound for the German village of Waldhut was carrying around 50 passengers when it derailed around 1021 GMT in the town of Doettingen, "grazing" the locomotive.

The cause of the accident, which injured both drivers, is under investigation and the rail line will be closed until later Monday, the spokeman added.

Now heatwave 'causes' train to derail amid fears 100F-plus temperatures warped tracks as thousands of heat records were set last month

 

Last updated at 11:50 PM on 8th August 2011

A freight train derailed in drought-hit Texas could have come off the line due to warped tracks caused by the state's relentless heatwave after it experienced its hottest July on record.

Thousands of heat records were set during July across the country with Oklahoma racking up the country's highest monthly average temperature ever.

That's the highest average temperature, for any month, for any state, at 89.1 degrees, topping an average of 88.1 set in July 1954, associate Oklahoma state climatologist Gary McManus said.

Mr McManus said: 'We've been beating temperature records left and right, from the 1930s Dust Bowl drought and the 1950s drought.'

He also revealed that nationwide, in the past 30 days, 3,709 high temperature records have been set or tied.

Extreme drought: Texans have endured over a month of extreme heat and drought

Extreme drought: Texans have endured over a month of extreme heat and drought

And, worse, there have been 7,410 records for overnight warmth broken or tied, meaning less chance to recover from the sweltering daytime readings.

'This has been a devastating year,' National Weather Service director Jack Hayes said. 'Natural disasters are on the rise in the United States,' he noted, including records for heat, tornadoes, floods and fires, and with the bulk of hurricane season still remaining.

And it appears that with the end of August did not come the end of the heatwave.  Waco, Texas, tied its record for the most consecutive days of 105 degrees or more at six from August 1 to 6.

And Dallas-Fort Worth is on pace to establish a new record for consecutive 100-degree days. It's currently at 38 days, from July 2 to August 8

The July average for Texas was 87.1 degrees.

Power officials had warned last week of rolling blackouts in the state as sweltering residents turned to air conditioning units in unprecedented numbers.

The current heat wave is typical of U.S. heat waves in the past decade and is consistent with the increasing warm summer night time extremes observed across much of the country since the late 20th century, NOAA reported.

All train cancelled in Bekasi

The Jakarta Post | Mon, 08/08/2011 8:00 AM

BEKASI: Operators of Bekasi’s railway station cancelled dozens of train trips on Sunday after a train derailed in Jatinegara Station, blocking the lines for trips from the eastern part of Jakarta.

Deputy head at Bekasi Station, Dwi Effendi, said the train derailed on Saturday night, prompting the trip cancellations from early on Sunday.

“We announced the cancellations since dawn [on Sunday],” Dwi said as quoted by kompas.com.

The cancellations prompted passengers to take other means of transportation to get to Jakarta.

The majority of passengers took intercity buses to downtown Jakarta, while others journeyed on diesel-powered trains bound for Senen railway station in Central Jakarta.

The train’s derailment in Jatinegara station also affected trains coming into the station from West Java, Central Java, Yogyakarta and East Java. Most incoming travellers experienced at least a 30-minute delay, kompas.com reported.

Train derails near Sabin

SABIN, Minn. – Nine rail cars were off their tracks Saturday afternoon after a BNSF Railway train derailed about 10 miles south of Moorhead in rural Clay County.

SABIN, Minn. – Nine rail cars were off their tracks Saturday afternoon after a BNSF Railway train derailed about 10 miles south of Moorhead in rural Clay County.

The accident occurred around 1:30 p.m., less than a mile north of Hoff Lutheran Church, said Deputy Mike Trygg of the Clay County Sheriff’s Office.

Trygg said the nine cars that came off the track had not been hauling cargo, and no injuries were reported. He said there was no hazardous waste spilled.

Amy McBeth, a spokeswoman for BNSF, said the cause of the accident was not yet known but was being investigated. She said crews expected to have the track cleared and the line repaired by early this afternoon.

On average, 10 cars per day travel that stretch of track, McBeth said. The train that derailed had 33 cars loaded and 31 without a load and was heading to Minot, N.D., coming north from Minneapolis, she said. It was hauling a variety of types of freight, she said.

A long string of rail cars that had been connected to those that derailed still sat on the track north of the site of the accident about two hours after the incident, which blocked access across 100th Avenue South where it crosses the track.

McBeth said she wasn’t sure how long it would be before those cars would be released to continue north.

MINEOLA, Texas (AP) — A freight train derailment in rural East Texas has left 18 grain-hauling cars off the tracks as Union Pacific officials review whether heat was a factor.

UP spokeswoman Raquel (ruh-KEL') Espinoza says crews are working to clear the tracks, several miles east of Mineola (min-ee-OH'-luh), but it would likely be Saturday before the line reopens.

She says nobody was hurt Thursday afternoon in the derailment of a train made up of four locomotives and 99 cars, traveling from Kingfisher, Okla., to Westwego, La.

Espinoza says the cause of the derailment is sought, but heat will be considered. The National Weather Service says the temperature in the area reached 109 degrees.

Some hopper cars overturned, spilling grain. Espinoza didn't immediately have a damage estimate.

Mineola is 75 miles east of Dallas.

CSX train derails in Oldham County

 

 

 Derailment crews are working on the clean up of nine derailed freight cars – one of which is an upright tanker of hydrogen peroxide – behind Northland Corp., according to CSX officials.

 There were no injuries, and the derailment produced no leaks or hazards to the surrounding area, CSX spokeswoman Carla Groleau said.

Four of the nine cars are lying on their side, and the other five are upright, Groleau said.

“Derailing doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re knocked over. They’re just knocked off track,” Groleau said.

The mixed-freight train was carrying scrap , rocks and the one tanker with hydrogen peroxide. Many of the cars were empty, Groleau said.

The derailment, called in to Oldham County dispatch shortly after midnight Friday morning, was in a wooded area behind Northland Corp., away from roads and out of si
