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.

Reports on the Amtrak Crash in Nevada

5:05 p.m. | Updated Investigators were examining the wreckage Sunday after a tractor-trailer plowed through railroad gates into an Amtrak train at a crossing early Friday in Nevada, killing at least six people and leaving at least 28 people unaccounted for.

The explanation for the crash, a seemingly freak accident that has drawn national attention and prompted morbid fascination, remains a mystery.

Investigators on Sunday said they were combing the area for clues as to why the truck driver breached the railroad crossing, despite ample warnings to stop, including the gates at the crossing coming down and flashing  lights going off as the California Zephyr train approached. Investigators said it could take a year to determine the cause of the crash.

The tractor-trailer skidded the length of a football field before it smashed the crossing’s gates, according to The Associated Press. He died from the impact, making it more difficult to determine what happened, investigators said.

Peter Knudson, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, said by phone Sunday that the train’s data recorder had been recovered, which could allow investigators to analyze the operation of the train’s controls at the time of the crash.

He said investigators would also be examining the cell phone records of the tractor-trailer’s driver to determine whether he was talking on the phone or sending text messages at the time of the crash. An autopsy also to be conducted this week to determine the physical state of the driver, including if he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

“We are in the fact-gathering stage of the investigation and it could take months before a picture of what happens emerges,” he said. “We have seen a lot of cases when drivers have been distracted and we want to see if this was a factor.”

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that the truck driver was a man in his mid-40s who worked for John Davies Trucking of Battle Mountain, in northern Nevada. Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Dan Lopez told the paper that the investigation would focus on the driver’s actions leading up to the accident.

“That’s what everybody wants to know. Why did the truck collide with the train?” Mr. Lopez said. “Unfortunately, since he was pronounced dead, he’s the only one who can tell us that prior to the investigation.”

Earl Weener, a member of the safety board told reporters that two truck drivers and a train engineer watched helplessly as the accident unfolded. He said that the drivers were part of a three-truck convoy.

The engineer of the train slammed on the emergency brakes and hoped the train would not derail, Mr. Weener said. But the train, which was going about 78 miles an hour, traveled a half mile more before it stopped. The engineer watched the truck smash into 2 of the train’s 10 cars through the rearview mirror, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported.

Video posted on the Web site of the Reno Gazette-Journal shows the smoldering train; the footage also shows the remains of the tractor-trailer, its tires dislodged from the vehicle.

Aerial photographs of the crash site reveal a plaintive scene: the railway crossing surrounded by fields, the windows of the charred train apparently blown out from the impact.

Among the dead, the Churchill County Sheriff’s office reported, was the train conductor. According to local news reports, the conductor was 68-year-old Laurette Lee of South Lake Tahoe, Calif, a mother of three and grandmother of five who came from a railroad family. Her grandfather Hilary Turley and her great-grandfather Aaron Turley were both railroad men. Her brother is an Amtrak dispatcher; her nephew a conductor.

In a profile of the conductor in the Contra Costa Times, her family recalled that she started her career in the railroad 23 years ago, working as a baggage handler and ticket-taker, before being promoted to conductor. About two years ago, she left Concord and moved to South Lake Tahoe and worked out of Amtrak’s Reno headquarters, her relatives said.

Her nephew Ben Rankin, the conductor, told the paper that 10 years ago his aunt had mentored him when he decided to enter the railroad fraternity, standing by his side and guiding him as he conducted his first train.

“She takes care of everybody she comes into contact with,” Mr. Rankin said. “I wouldn’t have done it without her.”

The westbound California Zephyr was en route from Chicago to Emeryville, Calif., with 204 passengers and 14 crew members on board when it was hit.

Train Derails, Closes Streets near Shrewsbury and Landsdowne Avenues

Shrewsbury Fire Chief William Fox said a train derailed on a bridge crossing Murdoch Avenue at about 10:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Shrewsbury officials closed several streets near Shrewsbury and Landsdowne avenues due to a train derailment that occurred at about 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, the stltoday.com news website reported.

By noon today, the news website reported that the train and a derailed car were gone and that officials were waiting for equipment to remove a damaged walkway and other debris from the bridge deck.

The 7200 block of Landsdowne remained closed to traffic, the website reported.

Shrewsbury Fire Chief William Fox said, to a Post-Dispatch reporter on Saturday night, that the train derailed after leaving a yard at McCausland Avenue and while crossing a bridge on Murdoch Avenue.

Fox said at least one train car is a tanker holding the cleaning agent ethyleneamines. The tanker was not leaking, he told the Post-Dispatch reporter.

The car was taken to the train yard this morning, the website reported.

By noon today, Shrewsbury Police Lt. Brian Catlett said railroad officials told him one train car was off the tracks before leaving the yard. The train travelled about three-quarters of a mile before the off-track car struck a wooden walkway beside the track on the bridge.

Five houses east of the tracks were evacuated as a precaution and MetroLink service was shut down at Maplewood on the southbound Shrewsbury line, the news website reported late last night.

By noon, railroad engineers said the concrete and steel trestle bridge were safe for train traffic, Catlett told a Post-Dispatch reporter. MetroLink trains are running through the area again.

This is a double whammy as the train derailed and the bridge partially collapsed so what comes first. the chicken or the egg???

Train derails in Shrewsbury, forcing street closings

A freight train derailed late Saturday night in Shrewsbury, prompting authorities to close several streets near Shrewsbury and Landsdowne avenues.

Shrewsbury Fire Chief William Fox said the derailment occurred about 10:30 pm on a bridge crossing Murdoch Avenue. The train was just leaving a nearby yard at McCausland Avenue, he said.

Fox wasn't sure how many cars derailed. But at least one was a tanker containing ethyleneamines, a corrosive substance used as a cleaning agent, he said. He said the tanker was not leaking.

Five houses east of the tracks were evacuated as a precautionary measure, and Metrolink service on the southbound Shrewsbury line was shut down at Maplewood.

About 12:30 am, emergency workers were waiting for railroad engineers to inspect the bridge to determine its stability.

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.
