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.

Collision between two UP trains strands hundreds in Arlington

Posted Saturday, Oct. 01, 2011

ARLINGTON -- A Union Pacific freight train rear-ended a stopped train along West Division Street late Saturday, causing three engines and several cars to derail and trapping about 600 visitors to a nearby charity event.

Arlington police said no one was injured in the derailment, at least the sixth in the city since 1998.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Arlington was hosting a charity event at Howell Family Farms, located behind the tracks at 4016 W. Division St. The crash blocked the lone exit, and organizers said they expected the cleanup to take several hours.

Craig Hubble, immediate past chairman of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Arlington, said a band member told him he felt the stage vibrate when the accident happened around 9 p.m.

"There was a lot of worry and concern," he said, adding that the venue is about 100 feet from the accident scene. Howell Family Farms is in a rural area between Arlington and Fort Worth's Handley neighborhood.

Hubble said visitors are making the most of the situation and staying in good spirits.

"Everything is OK," he said. "The band is playing. People are dancing."

Arlington Fire Department Battalion Chief Troy Brooks said a eastbound Union Pacific train was stopped on the tracks when a second UP train slammed into the rear of it.

Three locomotives derailed and three to five cargo containers were crushed.

Brooks said emergency officials were awaiting the arrival of heavy equipment to create a path out of Howell Family Farms. He said that could take several hours.

Arlington fire, police and emergency officials were at the scene Saturday night, as were Union Pacific representatives.

A series of derailments over the years on Union Pacific lines in Arlington have raised safety concerns.

In the most serious accident, in December 1998, an Amtrak passenger train carrying 198 people derailed, injuring 22 people.

The train was traveling 36 mph because of rough track conditions, but that was still too fast for the poor-quality track, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. The agency faulted Union Pacific Railroad for inspection and maintenance of the track.

In March 2001, a Union Pacific railroad car loaded with new vehicles toppled off the track and onto its side at East Division Street and Great Southwest Parkway. The derailment happened in Union Pacific’s Arlington yard.

In December 2002, a derailment left a train car full of GMC Hummers dangling over Texas 360, blocking the highway for almost seven hours.

The accident occurred when an engine drove into the side of a freight train that had stopped to make deliveries. At the time, an official said, a worker incorrectly moved a switch engine to an occupied track. No one was injured, but debris falling from the railcar caused several car accidents.

In March 2004, a Union Pacific switching engine repeatedly rammed rail cars until they toppled over in front of an oncoming freight train. The accident occurred at a switching yard near Division Street and Stadium Drive.

The accident was blamed on a communication problem involving a remote-control system, where the operator could not see the cars he was hitting.

1 killed, 30 injured in Venezuela train collision

Posted on September 30, 2011, Friday

CARACAS: Two commuter trains collided in a tunnel near Venezuelan capital Caracas on Thursday, killing one and injuring about 30 others, officials said, Xinhua News reported.

The accident occurred 7am local time when the two trains crashed in the tunnel located about 21 km from Charallave Norte station on the “Ezequiel Zamora” line, Transportation and Communication Minister Francisco Garces said.

The two trains connect Caracas with the city Valles de Tuy in the northern state of Miranda.

Garces said the driver of one of the trains died and about 30 people suffered minor injuries in the accident, which occurred during the peak morning rush hour when thousands of commuters were on their way to work in Caracas.

A third train was also involved in the accident but did not get entangled in the crash, Garces said, citing initial investigation results.

One of the trains traveling from Caracas to Charallave had suffered a sudden mechanical failure just at it entered the tunnel, causing it to overturn, he said.

Garces said that although the third train did not crash, some passengers were injured after the train conductor had to pull the emergency brake.

The railway service system was temporarily suspended while more than 50 buses were used to help transport thousands of stranded passengers to La Rinconada station, which connects with the subway of Caracas

TRAIN DELAYS........due to switch and signal failures.

China high speed subway crash also blamed on switch and signal failures

Amtrak, NJ Transit face delays in Newark

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey Transit trains through Newark are facing major delays because of switch and signal problems.

The delays hit right around the start of Tuesday's evening rush hour.

Amtrak said its trains were being delayed 60 to 90 minutes through rush hour. The problem was repaired by 7 p.m., though there were residual delays.

New Jersey Transit says delays on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coastline and Raritan Valley lines remained two hours behind schedule by 8:30 p.m. Some trains were canceled


The crash occurred at about 2:51 p.m. following a signal system failure at a station on the Line 10 subway, Shanghai Shentong Metro Group Co. said in a statement, adding that about 500 passengers were later evacuated from the trains.

The subway train stopped for about 15 minutes and then went on before stopping again for another ten minutes before crashing into the other, a young passenger on the train’s first carriage said.

The signal system failure at about 2:10 p.m. meant the trains had to be directed via phone by subway staff rather than by electric signals and thus were running at slower speeds, the subway operator’s statement said.

One person was killed as at least 19 oil tankers of a goods train caught fire while two others derailed at Chanmana village between Aluabari and Mangurjaan railway stations in Bihar's Kishanganj district today.

ADG (Railways) SK Bhardwaj said the goods train was on its way to Tatanagar in Jharkhand from Rangapara in Assam when the oil tankers derailed and caught fire at Chamanna on the New Jalpaiguri-Katihar section of Northeast Frontier Railway.

One of the burning oil tankers trailed from the track and fell on a villager working in the fields nearby, who was charred to death. The deceased has been identified as 26-year-old Moti ur Rehman.

Kishanganj District Magistrate Sandip Kumar Pudkalkatti said fire tenders were rushed in from neighbouring Islampur in West Bengal to fight the blaze.

He said 24 oil tankers were detached from the rear of the train and taken to Mangurjan station, while three others from the engine were taken to Aluabari.

While the exact reason of the derailment was yet to be known, Railway sources estimate the damage to be to the tune of Rs10 crore.

Official sources said fire tenders were also rushed in from Purnia and Kishanganj and engaged to control the fire.

Train services between New Jalpaiguri to Aluabari stations on the section have been affected, the sources added.

Freight train derails, LA commuter line disrupted

Published: Tuesday, Sep. 27, 2011 - 6:12 am

Two freight cars have rolled off Union Pacific tracks in the San Fernando Valley, forcing some Los Angeles rail commuters onto buses between Newhall and Burbank.

Police Lt. Robert Davis tells City News Service the freight cars rolled off the tracks at about 10 p.m. in the Pacoima area. The cars didn't topple over.

Because Metrolink's Antelope Valley Line shares that track, buses are shuttling passengers between the Newhall and Burbank stations.

It's unclear when the track will be repaired.
