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 Carrying 250,000 Liters of Fuel Derails on Kenyan Coast

A cargo train carrying 250,000 liters (66,000 gallons) of super petroleum, or unleaded gasoline, derailed off its tracks after taking a sharp turn along Kenya's eastern coast, forcing the closure of a major highway over the weekend, according to local reports.

The accident occurred early Sunday in Kibarani in Mombasa County, and prompted authorities to completely close off Makupa Causeway, the main link between the mainland and Mombasa Island, fearing a fire would break out after spillage of the highly flammable liquid, The Star, Kenya reported.

Thousands of commuters were left stranded until the highway was reopened Monday after experts determined the area was safe. No injuries were reported and the exact cause of the derailment is not yet determined.

The 16-wagon Kenya Railways train was headed towards Nairobi and was carrying fuel for Vivo Energy.

Maritime and Shipping Affairs Principal Secretary Nancy Karigithu said about 3,000 liters (790 gallons) leaked from the impacted wagons. Authorities have contained the fuel with foam and coolant, she said.

"The leakage came from two wagons, one of them was profuse. Luckily enough, no oil was spilled into the ocean," Karigithu said, as quoted by The Star, Kenya.

Karigithu added that experts are working to ensure the fuel does not enter the ocean and affect the marine system.

However, a number of conflicting reports, including one published from Reuters on Monday, suggested that some cargo plunged into the Indian Ocean. Mombasa police chief Johnstone Ipara told the news service a team of engineers and other local experts were working Monday to recover five train wagons that submerged in the ocean.

A witness also told Reuters the water that the wagons submerged into was slick with a substance that appeared to be a petroleum product.

But Karigithu insisted in a People Daily report posted Monday that the fuel has not reached the ocean.

"Contrary to reports, not a drop has spilled into the ocean, the ocean is about 500 meters from scene of derailment and we are managing the situation well. Our main priority now is to secure the lives of Kenyans first, the cause of the derailment will be established later," she said.

Shake 'like a quake' as Auckland train derails

Passengers were trapped on a derailed train for 40 minutes in an incident that has crippled the busy Britomart Station in Auckland.

Three carriages of the train derailed as the train was leaving the station, scaring passengers who described the incident as a a sudden shake "like a small earthquake".

Trains coming in and out of the Auckland station have been suspended indefinitely.

Three of the train's six carriages came off the tracks as it was leaving the station with 33 people onboard. There are no reports of injuries.

Passenger Charles Stewart was travelling on the eastern line heading into Britomart station when the train derailed.

Everything was going smoothly and then there was a sudden shake "like a small earthquake" as the train came off the tracks.

The passengers were stuck on the train for about 40 minutes, a lot of people were ringing in to work to let their bosses know they would be late, Stewart said.

All the passengers appeared to be unhurt - but were a little annoyed.

AUT student Kirstin Elphick was on board when the train derailed and felt "absolutely freaked out" when the brakes slammed on.

"It felt like it was going really, really fast... all of a sudden it stopped."

The train looked like it was leaning against the tunnel, Elphick said.

It was "really annoying" that more information was not provided before the passengers got off the carriage - they had no idea how long they would be there for.

The train was stuck upright, with about 33 onboard but there appeared to be no injuries.

"The first priority is to get people off the train."

Britomart station will remain closed while that happened and the power would be turned off, he said.

It was hoped operations could return to normal after the passengers were taken off the train as there was a spare platform that could be used, he said.

Auckland Transport confirmed train services have been temporarily stopped.

"Auckland Transport advises that three carriages (on a six-carriage train) have come off the tracks meaning that the train is immobile," a spokesman said.

"The incident occurred at low speed as it was leaving platform 2 at around 9.40am. The train remains upright and there are no injuries.

Freight train derails in Delco: Amtrak Northeast Corridor service resuming, SEPTA Wilmington/Newark suspended

Thursday, May 03, 2018 04:58PM
A Norfolk Southern freight train derailed under the I-95 overpass in Ridley Township, Delaware County affecting service on Amtrak and SEPTA.

Amtrak trains started rolling again through Crum Lynne nearly 11 hours after the partial train derailment that left a commuter mess.

Earlier at 30th Street Station in Center City, and in Wilmington, Delaware, commuters were stuck trying to find ways around the service disruptions.

SEPTA's Wilmington-Newark line was suspended.

Then Amtrak's Northeast Corridor service between Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. was also suspended after initially operating with delays.

While Amtrak resumed service, SEPTA announced the Wilmington-Newark line would remain suspended for the remainder of the day.

If needed, SEPTA will add p.m. rush-hour trains on the Media/Elwyn Line to accommodate passengers.

In addition, customers can find details on travel using alternate SEPTA modes.

SEPTA also expects to be able to operate some limited service on the Wilmington/Newark Line on Friday.

All possible options are being explored

"SEPTA Wilmington/Newark Line trains operate on these tracks, which are part of Amtrak's Northeast Corridor. Multiple tracks remain out of service due to ongoing repair work," SEPTA said.

Around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, a Norfolk Southern freight train with two engines and 88 cars was five miles north of Marcus Hook, near the Eddystone and Crum Lynne stations, when the last two cars derailed.
No one was hurt, but the very last car tipped over spilling stones onto the tracks.

Crews hauled in cranes to help with the clearing effort.

While several tracks were running by late morning, Amtrak says Track 3, where the incident occurred, will remain closed for at least a few days for switch and railroad tie repairs.

UPDATE: CSX train derails at New River Gorge


MCKENDREE, W.Va. (WV MetroNews/WSAZ/AP) -- UPDATE 4/16/18 @ 8:50 p.m.

By WV MetroNews | 


CSX says an empty coal train has hit a rock slide and derailed in southern West Virginia. No injuries were reported.

The company says in a news release the train heading to Hutchinson derailed about 9:30 a.m. Monday near Thurmond in the New River Gorge. CSX says 10 of the 97 empty rail cars and one of two locomotives derailed.

The statement says the derailed cars remained upright.

New River Gorge National River spokeswoman Julena Campbell says in a news release that the engine that derailed landed on its side near the New River. She said the train was traveling from Clifton Forge, Virginia, to pick up a coal shipment.

She says no diesel fuel spilled and that crews are working to remove 5,000 gallons of fuel from the locomotive.

She says the track is expected to reopen Tuesday.

“It sounds like that there was a slide, probably caused by all the wet weather, that slid across the tracks. Initially that’s looking like that’s what caused it.”

Campbell also said it was a CSX train and the locomotive is off of the tracks. Ten empty coal cars have also derailed. The locomotive and the 10 cars did not go into the river, but the locomotive was on its side.

No one was hurt.

HazMat crews from CSX were on the scene to help with cleanup.

Officials say the train was headed from Clifton Forge, Virginia, to Peach Creek, West Virginia, to pick up coal.

CSX officials, National Park Service Rangers and Fayette County fire crews are on the scene.
