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 Carrying New Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra Vehicles

Jul 14, 2019

Like a scene out of some post-apocalyptic blockbuster, a train derailment in Lincoln County, Nevada, has spilled tons of new pickups across a lonely stretch of desert highway. Included amongst the wreckage are new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra models, as well as new Jeep Gladiators.

Luckily, no injuries were reported, which is pretty amazing judging by the photos. A reported 33 train cars were involved in the incident, which were transporting the new vehicles west. In addition to causing a huge mess, the derailment also shut down a nearby road.

The incident occurred on July 10th, near the town of Caliente, Nevada, which is located approximately 30 miles west of Utah.

Lincoln County Sheriff Kerry Lee said that it was the most spectacular mess he had ever seen. Lee also stated that some of the onboard cars were hauling hazardous material, but none of those particular vehicles were directly impacted in the crash.

Photos reveal numerous Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra vehicles in various states of destruction, with body components ripped and dented, and mechanical bits littering the dusty landscape. Some vehicles are sitting on their roof, while others are stacked on top of one another like some kind of vehicular Jenga.

While it’s sad to see so many new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra vehicles destroyed, we’re glad no one was hurt. What’s more, it’s kinda fascinating to see how the pickups managed to handle the incident in terms of crash worthiness.

The cause of the derailment is currently unknown, but an investigation is currently underway.

For customers eager to receive their new Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra pickup, it looks like the waiting will go on a bit longer. Even if the damage is repairable, it’s highly unlikely any of these vehicles will make it to market, as GM will scrap them outright to avoid any possible liability issues down the road.

No injuries after Union Pacific train derails in Hays

A Union Pacific train derailment in Hays caused some home evacuations and a few road closures around Ninth and Milner late Sunday afternoon.

“A little after 5 p.m. dispatch received a call from Union Pacific Railroad concerning a derailment they had near the intersection of Ninth and Milner,” said Kim Rupp, Hays public information officer.

“At this time there are three tanker cars off the tracks,” he said.

By 6:30 p.m. there was no immediate danger to the public, and no injuries had been reported.

“They do contain ethanol, however, there are no leaks, so there are no hazards to the public,” Rupp said.

While there was believed to be no immediate danger, some limited evacuations of housing were immediately after the derailment in the vicinity as a precautionary measure.

The fire department set up a 300-foot perimeter, but no intersections were closed by 6 p.m.

The traveling public is asked to avoid the area and observe cones and barricades while the accident is being cleared, Rupp said.

Derailed train in eastern Nevada is carrying munitions, sheriff says — I-80 still closed

Published 11:02 a.m. PT June 19, 2019

Update, 11:54 a.m.

A spokesperson for the Federal Railroad Administration told the Reno Gazette Journal that the agency is investigating the incident. 

The spokesperson also reiterated that none of the cars involved in the derailment were carrying explosives, but did not say if there are other hazardous materials onboard that authorities are concerned about. 

Update, 11:50 a.m.

Nineteen rail cars are involved in the derailment, according to another update from the Elko County Sheriff's Office. 

Containment efforts are underway and Interstate 80 is expected to reopen in about 20 minutes. 

Update, 11:35 a.m. 

A train carrying hazardous cargo that derailed near Wells in northeastern Nevada Wednesday morning was apparently carrying munitions, according to an updated from the Elko County Sheriff's Office. 

The cars carrying the munitions were located at the opposite end of the train, away from the derailment, according to a post to the sheriff's office Facebook page. 

Interstate 80 remains closed in both directions. The eastbound lanes are closed at mile marker 352 near Wells and the westbound lanes are closed at mile marker 360 near Moor.

A train carrying hazardous materials derailed along Interstate 80 east of Wells, Nevada Wednesday morning, closing the interstate in both directions.

The derailment caused the train to spill some of the hazardous material, according to the Elko County Sheriff's Office. 

People are being urged to avoid the area at this time. 

Video of the incident, recorded by Michael Lyday and posted to twitter, shows several train cars at the front of the train crumpled against one another and a plume of what appears to be white smoke.

Boston train derails near Fenway Park before Red Sox game, sending 10 to hospital

Published 6:07 p.m. ET June 8, 2019

BOSTON — Ten people were injured Saturday when a subway train derailed inside a tunnel near Fenway Park prior to the first game of a doubleheader between the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays.

The derailment occurred at approximately 10:55 a.m. between the Fenway and Kenmore stops on the green line of the Boston train and subway system known as "The T." 

Some people were carried out of the tunnel by stoke baskets, according to the Boston Fire Department, and 10 were transported to local hospitals. 

The Boston Globe quoted a passenger, 19-year-old Bryan Marden, who said the train was traveling at a high rate of speed before it derailed where the subway split. He said some of the passengers who were hurt appeared to be headed to the Red Sox game and nearby Pride Parade festivities. First pitch of the Red Sox game was 1:05 p.m.

Joe Pesaturo, spokesman for MBTA, said the injuries are "not life threatening." Boston Emergency Medical Services described the injuries as "varying in nature." The Globe reported that some appeared to be serious. 

Among the injured was the train's motor person, a 62-year-old man, who Peasturo said is in stable condition after being treated for a leg injury and some bumps and bruises. 

Pesaturo said the cause of the derailment is under investigation and authorities will interview the motor person after he's been treated medically.

He said no structural damage to the tunnel or the overhead wire has been reported. He said the "re-railing process" is underway and that once the car is moved, the track and switch infrastructure will be inspected. He said any necessary repair work will be conducted.

Union Pacific freight train derails in Taylor; none injured, officials say

A Union Pacific freight train carrying industrial sand through Williamson County derailed in Taylor, causing some Amtrak trips using the same rail line to be canceled or delayed.

Eight cars on the train derailed around 4:30 a.m., said Union Pacific Railroad spokeswoman Kristen South. The train derailed into Taylor Yard in the 100 block of East First Street in downtown Taylor.

Officials do not yet know what caused the train to jump the tracks, she said. Two crew members were on the train, but no one was injured.

Amtrak officials said their Texas Eagle Train 22 was scheduled to depart from San Antonio on Thursday, but that trip was canceled because of the freight train derailment. Texas Eagle Train 21 was to operate as a bus between San Antonio and Fort Worth, Amtrak officials said.

Green Line train derails in Bronzeville

Around 11 a.m. this morning, a Green Line “L” train derailed near the 47th Street stop, authorities said. Firefighters helped evacuate approximately 30 people off the four-car train using a hydraulic lift—with seven people transported to area hospitals, reporting minor injuries.

At around 1 p.m., the Chicago Transit Authority’s Chief Transit Officer Donald Bonds announced that shuttle services would be available between Roosevelt and the Ashland/63rd-Cottage Grove stops while Green Line service is restored, which Bonds estimated would take five to six hours.

According to Bonds, the CTA will be launching an investigation into the cause of the accident. There was track work occurring around the site of the derailment, he said, but authorities will not know if it was related until after their investigation.

Updated 6/6/2019 6:30 p.m.

Green Line service has resumed, with trains running in both directions between Harlem and Ashland/63rd-Cottage Grove, according to the CTA’s Twitter account. There have been no updates regarding the cause of the derailment.

At least 15 train cars carrying mostly produce derail in Wellington; cause unknown at this time

Posted: 7:11 AM, May 28, 2019

WELLINGTON, Ohio — A massive train pileup caused roads to shutdown after a train derailed in Wellington, located in Lorain County, early Tuesday morning.

Reports of a train derailment in the area of CSX tracks near the intersection of Wheeling Avenue and Magyar Street came in at about 6:05 a.m.

When fire crews arrived, they found about 15 to 20 cars that were off the track, with one car filled with onions that was partially on fire, according to Wellington Assistant Fire Chief Bill Brown.

"It could've been a lot worse. The hazardous materials are down the line and those have not been affected," said Brown.

No injuries were reported from the derailment. Officials said all the main roads in Wellington have reopened to traffic following a brief closure to all the roads in the area.

The cause of the derailment is unknown at this time. Train crews told authorities that they were slowing down as they came into Wellington, and that's when they had an issue, according to Brown.

Wellington Chief of Police Tim Barfield said there is no threat to residents in the area and no evacuations are planned.

A state trooper on scene said there are no toxic chemicals coming from the affected train cars, but there are a lot of perishable foods such as carrots, onions and potatoes.

Motorists are asked to drive with caution and avoid the area if possible.
