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.

Quetta-bound train derails in bomb attack

QUETTA: A Quetta-bound passenger train was attacked with a remote controlled bomb near Dera Allah Yar on Friday, about 400 kilometres from Quetta. The bomb explosion derailed the locomotive and four carriages. However, no one was hurt in the attack, a senior district police officer said. The outlawed Baloch Republic Army (BRA) claimed responsibility for the attack. “Such attacks will continue in future,” the spokesperson of BRA told reporters over the telephone. According to district police officer Javed Gharshen, a passenger train, Bolan Mail, was on its way to Quetta from Karachi when it came under attack near Marri Farm Tentaged village area in Dera Allah Yar, district headquarters of Jaffarabad. The explosion destroyed 30 feet of railway tracks and derailed the locomotive and three bogies of the train. “It was a remote controlled blast aimed at the Bolan Mail,” said Gharshin. According to railway officer Nazir Ahmed, around 30 to 35 feet railway track was completely destroyed and 345 feet of railway track was damaged in the explosion. He said that the rail service between Quetta and the rest of the country was suspended soon after the blast. “Repair work to the damaged track has begun and the rail service will likely be restored by late Friday night.

GLENCOE - Inside the train a jolt, then the scream of metal ripping, wooden ties splintering, steel slashing gravel and a hundred voices rising in panic.

Outside the train, a pickup truck crumpled and thrown into a ditch.

The collision of a truck and Via passenger train west of Glencoe on Friday morning sent the 22-year-old truck driver, John Jobson of Southwest Middlesex, to hospital, where he was fighting for his life.

The crash also injured at least six people and shook up many more of the 99 passengers and seven crew on board.

“People were screaming and holding on for their lives,” passenger Naanan Williams said. “I was scared and clo

RAIL commuters faced major delays last night after an empty passenger train derailed in Princes Street Gardens at the height of the rush hour, leaving passengers unable to travel from Edinburgh Waverley station.

The disruption was expected to continue until this morning while Network Rail engineers examined the scene.

The train was travelling to a depot in Edinburgh when the derailment happened at around 6pm.

There were no reports of any injuries and i


t is believed there were only two railway workers on board at the time.

An emergency timetable was put in place and passengers were warned to expect delays of up to 90 minutes on routes such as Edinburgh to Glasgow and Dunfermline.

Passengers for the 11:40pm Edinburgh to London Euston sleeper service were told they would need to catch a special bus service to Carstairs, where they would be able to join the train.

A spokeswoman for ScotRail said last night: "We are currently preparing a temporary timetable and will update our website this evening with details.

"We are also trying to source replacement buses."

She continued: "An empty train on its way to the depot has derailed at Princess Street Gardens. No passengers were on board the train."

One passenger wrote on micro-messaging website Twitter: "Scotrail have their flagship Glasgow line running. Rest of us are left to make our own way home."

The Kanpur-Shikohabad passenger train derailed near Sarai Bhupat station in Etawah on North-Central Railway in the early hours of today, railway sources said here.

No one was injured in the accident, which occurred around 0130 hours, they said.

This is the third incident of derailment in the last fortnight on the busy Howrah-Delhi route.

The accident has affected the running of more than a dozen trains, including the Delhi-bound Rajdhani Express and Shatabdi Express.

Relief trains have reached the spot to remove the derailed engine and two coaches of the train. Several trains, including four Rajdhani Express trains, Prayagraj, Gorakhdham and Kanpur-New Delhi Shatabdi Express have been detained at different stations on the way.

Meanwhile, efforts are on to clear the tracks to allow important trains to pass through the down track.

The Railways have ordered a probe into the derailment.

Over 80 passengers were killed when 13 coaches of the Kalka Mail derailed at Malawan station near Fatehpur on July 10. Later, a couple of wagons of a goods train had derailed near Kanpur last week.

Train derails in Waterford

July 27, 2011
By Sam Shawver , Marietta Times

Special to The News and Sentinel

WATERFORD-Both lanes of Ohio 339 were closed to traffic for several hours Tuesday night after 15 fully loaded CSX coal cars derailed at a Waterford rail crossing.

The derailment occurred around 5:30 p.m., according to Lt. Mary Pfeifer, commander of the Ohio State Highway Patrol's Marietta post.

"No one was injured and none of the cars overturned, and there were no hazardous materials involved," she said. "The cars were loaded with coal headed for (American Electric Power's Muskingum River plant)."

Pfeifer said the main concern Tuesday evening was keeping unnecessary traffic out of the area until Ohio 339 could be reopened.

Local passenger vehicles were detoured around the Ohio 339 railroad crossing via Main Street in Waterford, but Pfeifer said tractor-trailer rigs and other larger vehicles on 339 would have to either turn around or wait until the rail crossing could be cleared.

The state route was still closed at 10 p.m. Tuesday awaiting CSX equipment that had to be brought in from Huntington to move the cars from the tracks.

The derailed cars appeared to have run off the tracks at the intersection with Sunset Lane, a street with no outlet about 100 yards north of Ohio 339.

Rita Burchett, who lives on Marquis Avenue off of Sunset Lane, witnessed the derailment from her home west of the tracks.

"I could see the coal cars starting to lean over, then some of them just went off the tracks," she said. "Nothing like this has ever happened before, but it's been a concern in this neighborhood for some time.

"We have a lot of older people, some with heart problems," Burchett said. "But how could an ambulance get through here?"

Her neighbor, Donna Phillips, said she can't walk far due to a heart ailment.

"Trains come through here about twice a day, and this is something we just knew would happen sooner or later," she said. "We really need some kind of other access road."

One local official said a helicopter would likely have to be used to access the neighborhood in case of a major emergency during the derailment.

Pfeifer said CSX officials would determine the cause of the derailment.

Two freight wagons derail

Last updated 13:26 26/07/2011

Two wagons on a south-bound freight train derailed near Oaro, south of Kaikoura, about 8.15am today.

KiwiRail spokeswoman Cathie Bell said a bearing collapsed in one of the wagons, causing the boogie to fall on the track.

That pulled off another wagon as well.

Both wagons remained upright, but a crane was needed to lift them to repair the damaged boogie. She expected the tracks to be cleared later today.

The train was travelling at a reduced speed because repairs had recently been carried out in the area.

Train derailment causes week-long delays

Published: 25 Jul 11 08:29 CET |


A train derailed just south of Tanum in Bohuslän in western Sweden on Sunday, causing disruption to services which is expected to continue until at least Friday.

Nobody was injured in the accident as the northbound train left the tracks, but there has been substantial damage along a stretch of about 100 metres.

Clearing the area of the train and other debris is expected to take until at least Friday, causing disruption to services in the region, according to a statement from the National Transport Administration (Trafikverket).

"Salvage work is complicated and it might take all week, according to the latest forecast," said Lennart Helsing at the agency.

"The train is standing so badly that it is blocking the oncoming tracks. There is therefore a complete stoppage in train services," Helsing said.

The cause of the derailment remains unclear with the train travelling at low speed and left blocking the tracks in the southbound direction.

"We don't yet know if the fault was with the train or the track," Helsing said.

Trains will be replaced by buses until traffic is resumed.

FULTS, Ill. — Officials are trying to pinpoint what caused 14 coal-loaded rail cars to derail near the southwestern Illinois town of Fults.

Union Pacific spokesman Mark Davis says no injuries resulted from the accident about 12:45 p.m. Sunday that damaged two stretches of track and a bridge. Davis says workers looked to have the track repaired later Monday.

Davis could not immediately say how much coal spilled during the derailment involving the train that had three locomotives and 136 rail cars.

The train was headed from Wyoming to Joppa, Ill.
