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.

WHITEHALL -- Officials are investigating why a train derailed on Saturday, blocking traffic on William Street.

"We're still sorting out the information on the downloads from the engines, but it appears there were some empty cars going through the curve, and one of them hopped off and caused the others to hop off," said David Wulfson, president of Vermont Rail System.

The derailed train blocked South William Street on Saturday morning until about 8 a.m.

The train, which was pulling 50 cars, was headed west to Whitehall from Rutland, Vt., when about a dozen of the cars derailed between South William Street and the railroad trestle over Wood Creek.

"The train was not going too fast; we know that already, but I'm still sorting out some of the other information," said Wulfson, who believes the placement of loaded cars behind empty cars contributed to the accident.

No injuries or spills were reported. Wulfson said the tracks were cleared by Saturday night, and the cars were all back on track as of noon Monday.

"There's a company called Winter's Rigging, which has a big bulldozer with cranes on the side that can pick up the rail cars and move them," he said.

Although it is not common, Wulfson said freight trains do sometimes derail.

"Once is too much as far as I'm concerned," he said.

Amtrak spokesman Cliff Cole said the railway was functioning normally for Amtrak's use the following day.

"We did use it. We were able to run our Ethan Allen Service on Sunday," he said.

Amtrak's Ethan Allen Express, which takes passengers from New York City to Rutland, Vt., travels on the Vermont Rail System line through Whitehall.

The Vermont Rail System, which is based in Burlington, Vt., runs freight and passenger trains, intermodal shipping and motor carriers on more than 230 miles of railroad. It also operates a reload/warehouse facility near Bellows Falls, Vt.

AFTERNOON UPDATE: Crews working to clear train derailment in Tazewell

TAZEWELL, Va. — Crews with Norfolk Southern are still working to clear a train derailment in the Four Way section of Tazewell.

An empty hopper train traveling from Bluefield to Norton derailed at 1:05 p.m. in the town, according to Robin Chapman, a spokesman for Norfolk Southern. The derailment caused major traffic headaches for motorists attempting to navigate the busy intersection.

Chapman said the train consisted of two locomotives and 168 empty coal hoppers. No injuries were reported. However, the train blocked several crossings in the town of Tazewell.
