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.

This story sticks out for me as Zetas said as the earth changes pick up and people become subconsciously aware that something is amiss, workers will not pay attention as they daydream and man made accidents will occur much more frequently.

Nevada: Truck Collides With Train

Two people were killed and at least 20 were injured on Friday morning when a tractor-trailer collided with a California-bound Amtrak train in a remote part of western Nevada. The crash occurred at a crossing about 75 miles east of Reno when the driver of the truck apparently drove into the side of the California Zephyr, which was traveling from Chicago to the Bay Area with more than 200 passengers and 14 crew members aboard, Amtrak officials said.

Trooper Dan Lopez with the Nevada Highway Patrol said that the driver of the tractor-trailer rig and one passenger on the train were killed, and that the injured were taken by helicopter and ambulance to hospitals in Reno and Fallon. The severity of the injuries was not immediately clear, he said. Several train cars briefly caught fire, though the train did not derail. Trooper Lopez said that an eyewitness indicated that the crossing gate was working and that it was down at the time of the crash. The investigation is continuing, he said.

RCMP blocked traffic along Highway 881 outside of Fort McMurray Thursday afternoon as a result of a six-car train derailment, near mile marker 268 roughly eight kilometres from Anzac.

The derailment occurred around 12:30 p.m. on a southbound CN train. CN officials responded immediately and the cause of the derailment is under investigation. No injuries were reported in the derailment. The cars were carrying sulfur, some of which leaked at the scene, but a CN representative says they aren't aware of immediate risk to the public

In addition to CN, regional emergency services responded on scene, as did a helicopter from Alberta Sustainable Resource Development, and representatives from Alberta Environment.

Several CN freight cars went off the rails just east of 50th Street north of the Yellowhead.

The derailment did not disrupting vehicle traffic, although it happened on the main rail line through Edmonton.

CN was expecting to spend most of Thursday getting the area cleaned up.

Train derails near Kasara
Published: Sunday, Jun 12, 2011, 0:45 IST
By DNA Correspondent | Place: Mumbai | Agency: DNA

Passengers of the 01062 Darbhanga-Mumbai Express had a narrow escape as six coaches and its locomotive derailed in the mountainous Thal ghat section near Kasara early morning on Friday.

The entire section of Thal ghat has many tunnels and viaducts. Though there were no major injuries, officials said a few passengers suffered minor injuries and were given first-aid.

Though railway officials said they were not able to ascertain the cause of the derailment immediately and had begun investigations, sources said that a welding fault leading to a crack in the long-welded rail tracks could be one of the reasons of the accident. “The cause of the investigation is yet to be ascertained,” a CR spokesperson said.

“Opened in the 1860s, the ghat section between Kasara and Igatpuri runs through a number of tunnels and a mountainous terrain, including the large Ehgaon viaduct in the section and the accident could have led to a major disaster if the train was faster,” an official said.

“Passengers from the affected coaches were shifted to other coaches and the remaining coaches of the train reached Lokmanya Tilak Terminus at Kurla at 7.50am. Passengers of other trains were detrained at Igatpuri and road transport arrangements are also being made. Additional suburban services are being run between Kasara and Kalyan,” a CR press release said.

“We are yet to pin-point the exact cause of the derailment. The line was cleared and section was thrown open by 2pm,” chief spokesperson Vidyadhar Malegaonkar said.

The East Central Railway (ECR) opened helplines in Darbhanga, Muzaffarpur and Hajipur to provide information about the passengers travelling by the train.

One killed as goods train derails in Korukkupet

CHENNAI: In a freak mishap, a railway pointsman fell under the wheels of a goods wagon, which derailed at Korukkupet in North Chennai on Wednesday, killing him on the spot. The victim, who was piloting the train to the shed, was identified as Ravikumara Pillai hailing from Mavelikara near Alapuzha in southern Kerala.

According to sources, 18 wagons loaded with steel plates were headed towards the Korrukupet Goods Shed from Tondiarpet railway station for unloading. The wagons were attached to locos on both ends, driven by two Loco Pilots, besides being assisted by two pointsmen.

The pointsmen would alight near the points to manually fix the right track for the trains between Tondiarpet and Korrukupet. When the goods train was moving towards the Goods Shed at 3pm, the loco crossed over the point leading to the wrong track and derailed. Ravikumara Pillai jumped from the loco to escape, but came under the wheels of the same train, and was killed on the spot.

“Overloading of wagons and exceeding the capacity of the loco could be the prime reason for the derailment,” a pointsman, under the condition of anonymity, claimed. He said, “A loco can only pull five wagons at a given time. To move more rakes, another loco with similar capacity was attached to the tail end to push the wagons. In such a scenario, though the train moves at a snail’s pace, its movement cannot be arrested immediately despite applying the brakes due to the pressure exerted from the loco on the other end. “

Another possibility that could have led to the derailment is the split in the point. “Many children playing at the vacant plots in the vicinity imitate the pointsman to change the lever, which goes unnoticed on several occasions. This could have also caused derailment,” sources underlined.

When contacted, S Anantharaman, Divisional Railway Manager, Chennai Division, Southern Railway, said an inquiry had been ordered into the derailment. “The inquiry committee, consisting of four senior officers, will submit its report in a week. Different aspects regarding the derailment would be probed,” he added.

Root Cause Eliminated

BREAKING NEWS: Train derails near Bole

Crews from BNSF responded Tuesday morning to a grain train derailment in Teton County on the track near Bole between Fairfield and Choteau. One car tipped off the tracks and spilled grain into a field while the remainder of the cars, still on the tracks, blocked the railroad crossing on Basin Lane, a rural gravel road running north and south.

Teton County Sheriff Keith VanSetten said his office was notified of the derailment at about 10:30 a.m. and had dispatched a deputy to the scene. VanSetten said he suspected that weather conditions probably contributed to the derailment as the area has received significant rainfall over the past several weeks and it had been raining steadily in the area for several hours.

Gus Melonas, BNSF public affairs director from Seattle, said the train was traveling from Choteau to Great Falls at 5 m.p.h. Three cars were involved in the derailment with two upright and off the track and a third on its side. He estimated about a quarter of ton of wheat was spilled from the tipped car.

Melonas said approximately 15 to 20 BNSF personnel from around the region, Great Falls to Havre, were dispatched to the site. They will begin clean up and hope to have the area clear by late today.

He said there were no injuries in the derailment and no hazardous material involved in the spill.

BNSF has made no official determination on the cause of the derailment but all indications are that a saturated rail bed was the main factor.

     

VanSetten said he did not know of any other road closures due to flooding in the county so far, but noted that a plugged culvert on Old Highway 89 out of Fairfield between 12th and 13th lanes had caused water to flow over the roadway. The County Road Department has put up caution signs.

Coal train cars derail east of Aitkin

Posted: June 6, 2011 - 5:07pm
 

About 12 cars on a BNSF coal train derailed east of Aitkin Monday afternoon.

No injuries were reported. 

The train was eastbound coming from Montana and headed to Superior, Wis. when the cars derailed about 2 p.m. 

The train, with three locomotives and 123 loaded cars, typically has two crew members — an engineer and a conductor. 

Amy McBeth, BNSF spokeswoman, said it’s too early to say what may have caused the derailment. Railway crews were headed to the scene to assess the situation and work on the cleanup. 

“We’ll have a better idea once we assess the situation more,” McBeth said. 

One coal car typically carries 116 tons of coal. 

BNSF reports 12 trains are typically on that line within a 24-hour period. BNSF crews will be on site to cleanup spilled coal and inspect the track for any needed repair before it will be open again. Rail cars that can be salvaged may be put back on the rails or scrapped depending on damage.

“So anytime a track is shut down that will cause delays for us and it’s an impact in the community in which we operate so our crews will be working as quickly as possible,” McBeth said.

SHARON, Vt. — Passengers on Amtrak's northbound and southbound Vermonter trains are going to be taking the bus between St. Albans and Springfield, Mass.

On Sunday evening two wheels of one car on the northbound Vermonter came off the track in Sharon.

Amtrak spokeswoman Danelle Hunter says there were 85 passengers and five crew members on the train when it went off the track. There were no injuries.

She says the train has since been put back on the track and the rail cleared, but on Monday Amtrak passengers in Vermont will be bused between Vermont stations and Springfield.

Hunter says she's unsure when regular Amtrak service will resume in Vermont.
