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.

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.

Red Line, Metra hit by heat, derailment

 

(Crain's) — Heat has hampered the Red Line and a Metra collision with a car that left two people dead will create delays for commuter using both services.

The Chicago Transit Authority said excessive heat has created a problem in the Red Line rail and repairs will force trains to operate on single track between the Cermak-Chinatown and the Sox-35th stops. The repairs are expected to be complete by Thursday evening.

The CTA will offer a bus shuttle between its Roosevelt and 47th Street stations that will stop at each Red Line station.

Metra officials said a commuter train heading into Chicago has derailed in suburban Oak Forest killing two people. The incident, which happened around 4 p.m., involved a car, a Metra spokeswoman said. She said there were injuries to train passengers, but they don't appear life threatening. It wasn't immediately clear whether those killed were in the car involved.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's office wouldn't provide any additional information about the fatalities.

The train was carrying 89 passengers who have been evacuated to cooling buses. The temperature in the suburb about 25 miles southwest of Chicago was more than 100 degrees on Thursday.

The train left Joliet at 3:25 p.m. and was due into downtown Chicago at 4:33 p.m. Reile says the front car of the train derailed slightly and traffic was stopped in both directions.

Oak Forest fire and police officials declined to comment.

BLENCOE, Iowa - Union Pacific officials are investigating a train derailment that forced the closure of a road along the border of southern Monona County.

Union Pacific Spokesman Mark Davis said the incident happened about 4:10 p.m. Tuesday on a stretch of track near Blencoe, Iowa.

He said 13 cars that derailed were from a train hauling coal from Wyoming to Sergeant Bluff, Iowa.

According to the Monona County Sheriff's Office, the incident started about 200 years south of 110th Street in Harrison County, Iowa.

Davis said crews worked into the night Tuesday and all day Wednesday to put the cars back on the tracks, clean up the spilled coal and begin rebuilding about 800 feet of tracks damaged by the derailment.

The railroad's investigators have not yet determined what caused the incident, Davis said.

An official with the Monona County Sheriff's Office said 340th Street was still closed as of Wednesday afternoon.
