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.

An Amtrak train traveling from New York to Miami collided with a freight train early Sunday, killing at least two people, injuring at least 70 others and spilling thousands of gallons of fuel, according to officials.

Amtrak said Train 91, which was carrying eight crew members and 139 passengers, collided with a CSX train near Cayce, S.C., around 2:35 a.m.

“The lead engine derailed, as well as some passenger cars,” Amtrak said in a statement.

The Lexington County spokesman, Harrison Cahill, said at a news conference early Sunday that about 70 people with injuries had been hospitalized. He said the injuries ranged from small scratches and bumps to broken bones, but could not say if any were life-threatening.

It was the second major crash involving an Amtrak train in less than a week. On Wednesday, a train carrying Republican members of Congress to a retreat in West Virginia hit a garbage truck in rural Virginia, killing a passenger in the truck.

The cause of the crash on Sunday was not immediately clear. The National Transportation Safety Board said on Twitter that it was beginning an investigation into the collision.

The train, operating Amtrak’s Silver Star service, originated at Pennsylvania Station in New York and was bound for Miami. The Lexington Sheriff’s Department said on Twitter that the crash occurred near Charleston Highway and Pine Ridge Road, close to Pine Ridge, S.C.



All passengers have been removed from the train, officials said. Capt. Adam Myrick of the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department said that the uninjured had been taken to a Red Cross reception site.

“We know that they are shaken up quite a bit,” he said. “We know that this is unlike anything else that they have ever been through, so we wanted to get them out of the cold, get them out of the weather, get them to a warm place.”

The Red Cross said on Twitter that “disaster trained volunteers” were responding to the accident.

Mr. Cahill said a hazardous materials team had been called to the site because roughly 5,000 gallons of fuel had spilled as a result of the collision.

“We were able to secure two leaks of fuel from the trains,” he said, adding there was “no threat to the public at this time.”

“This is not our first train derailment,” said Derrec Becker of the South Carolina Emergency Management Division, citing a fatal derailment in January 2005. A 42-car freight train operated by Norfolk Southern crashed into a smaller train near Granitteville, S.C., killing eight people, injuring more than 200 and leaking chlorine gas.

“It’s unfortunate that we have two fatalities,” he said of the crash on Sunday. “Our hearts are with those families right now.”

Senator Tim E. Scott, Republican of South Carolina, also expressed his condolences on Twitter to the families of those killed and those injured.

Derek Pettaway, a passenger on the train, told CNN that he had been asleep at the time of the crash, but that officials reacted swiftly and passengers were led off quickly.

“Nobody was panicking, people were in shock more than anything,” he said, according to The State’s website.

He said it was too dark to see much, but most of the cars he glimpsed ended up off the tracks but upright.

Amtrak has had a number of high-profile crashes and derailments over the years, leading to criticism from consumer advocates and government officials. Federal Railroad Administration statistics have shown that in recent years the agency has had an average of about two derailments a month, accounting for about one-quarter of all the accidents it reports.

Most derailments, however, have rarely caused more than minor injuries.

Amtrak maintains that it has been a “safe and reliable transporter of more than 30 million passengers” and that it has a strong safety record. However, after a 2016 episode in Pennsylvania in which a train hit a piece of track equipment and derailed, killing two, it said in a statement, “We need to assess how we can get better.”

Amtrak has also installed technology known as positive train control on parts of its rail network in the Northeast Corridor after passenger trains traveling well above the speed limit derailed, leaving a trail of death and injuries.

In the Amtrak crash in Virginia on Wednesday, two passengers from the truck were injured — one seriously — and hospitalized. Two members of the train’s crew and at least two passengers, including Representative Jason Lewis, Republican of Minnesota, were also hospitalized with minor injuries.

Republicans had chartered the train to carry them from Washington to the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia, where the party was holding its annual policy retreat. Several lawmakers who were on the train estimated that more than half of the Republican members of the House and Senate, including Speaker Paul D. Ryan, were on board, and that many were accompanied by their spouses.

In December, a passenger train on a newly opened Amtrak route jumped the tracks on an overpass south of Tacoma, Wash., slamming rail cars into a busy highway, killing at least three people and injuring about 100 others.

In 2015, an Amtrak train derailed in Philadelphia, killing eight people and injuring more than 200. A Pennsylvania judge dismissed involuntary manslaughter charges against the Amtrak engineer, saying it appeared to be an accident and not the result of criminal negligence.

After the crash on Sunday, Amtrak posted on Twitter: “Individuals with questions regarding passengers on train 91 can contact us at 1.800.523.9101.”

Train derails in downtown Quincy


QUINCY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - UPDATE 01/30/2018 12:17 p.m.

A CSX Spokesperson released this statement about the spill:
Just after 6:00 a.m. today, approximately seven rail cars on a CSX train headed to Waycross, Ga., derailed near the Pat Thomas Parkway grade crossing in Quincy, Fla. No injuries or environmental impacts were reported. Two of the rail cars spilled a small amount of adipic acid, which is a solid chemical commonly used in the production of gelatin food products. While this product poses no safety risk to the public, CSX contractors on site are taking standard precautions as they work to clean up the area. The train consists of two locomotives, 53 loaded rail cars of mixed freight and 34 empty rail cars. CSX thanks the Quincy Fire Department and the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office for their quick response and continued support on site, and we appreciate the patience of the surrounding community as we work to safely restore this area

From WCTV:
A train in downtown Quincy, Florida has flipped onto its side, the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office confirms

GCSO says the train was traveling along Pat Thomas Parkway when it derailed near Live Oak Street.

There are no reported injuries.

GCSO says CSX, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, and the Florida Department of Emergency Management have arrived on scene.

CSX also has a crane on the way to move the train cars.

Authorities say material from the train did spill, but it is described as an "environmental hazard solid" and does not pose a safety threat to the public. The DEP is on hand to make sure it's cleaned up safely and securely.

Italy train crash: Three killed in derailment near Milan

  • 25 January 2018

A packed commuter train has derailed near the northern Italian city of Milan, leaving at least three people dead and around 10 seriously injured.

Several people were rescued from the wreckage of the carriages that derailed next to the Pioltello Limito station in the morning rush hour.

The cause of the accident is not yet clear but a collapse of the rail track is under investigation.

Witnesses said the train trembled for a few minutes before the accident.

The Trenord train, carrying some 250 people, was heading to Milan's Porta Garibaldi station from Cremona when it derailed at about 07:00 local time (06:00 GMT).

The train was travelling at normal speed when the accident happened, a spokesperson for Trenord told Reuters news agency. Services in the area were halted for hours.

The identities of the victims have not been confirmed, but Italian media report that they are all women.

"A train can derail for only two reasons; either through a structural collapse of the track or a collapse of the train. This is the first thing that needs to be cleared up," said Raffaele Cattaneo, president of the regional council.

RFI, which manages the rail network, said there was a rupture in the track but that it was unclear whether this was a cause or a consequence of the accident.

"The rail track collapse was detected 2.3km [1.4 miles] before the spot of the accident... but it is premature to establish the dynamics of the accident," said regional director Vincenzo Macello.

'It's like a bloodbath': Up to 16 passengers are injured as a train derails after smashing into a barricade at '50 to 70kmh' in major incident at Sydney's Richmond station

  • Up to 16 people have been injured and three were trapped on the crashed train
  • Two people are severely injured, train carriages were left splattered with blood
  • The suburban train reportedly hit barrier at Richmond Station, northwest Sydney
  • Rescue helicopters and emergency services have been dispatched to the scene 

Up to 16 people have been injured after a train overshot and hit a barricade in Sydney's north on Monday morning.

The suburban train hit a safety barrier at Richmond station at the end of the T1 Western Line, in the city's north-west, about 10am.

Three people were freed after being trapped in the front carriage, but Fire and Rescue NSW personnel remain on the scene.

Some of the injured passengers were carried off the blood-splattered train on stretchers, while others treated by paramedics outside the station.

An injured rail worker was among the people treated by paramedics after Monday's crash
 

A 70-year-old woman has been taken to Westmead Hospital for treatment and two others have been transported to Nepean.

Witnesses have described a scene of chaos, with the train apparently hitting the buffer at the end of the line 'at speed'. 

Brett, who witnessed the crash, told Fairfax he saw the train smash into the barrier at 50 to 70 kilometres per hour.

I witnessed all the people through the window, they were just flying through the air,' he said. 

'I was straight onto the train as soon as I seen people were injured ... I walked through and seen the blood everywhere. There is absolutely blood everywhere, it's a big hit. 

'Inside the train is like a bloodbath. All the dividers in between the carriages are smashed, completely crushed flat on every single one, that's how fast it was going.' 

Fire and Rescue New South Wales had one crew on the scene within minutes and six more on route to the crash, described by emergency services as a 'major incident'.

'Paramedics are currently responding to a train incident at Richmond. Triple Zero (000) call came in just before 10am,' a  statement from NSW Ambulance said.

'Initial reports suggests 10 patients are being assessed for minor injuries and 2 patients for more severe injuries.

'Seventeen NSW Ambulance resources are responding as well as three rescue helicopters.' 

Reported injuries include a hip injury, spinal injuries, a collarbone injury, possible leg injuries and cuts and bruises.

A rail union official said: 'Richmond is a dead-end line and there is just a buffer stop at the end of the rail line, and he has hit it by the sounds of it.'

He said most of the injured had suffered 'bumps and bruises', indicating the collision occurred at slow speed, The Sydney Morning Herald reported. 

Witnesses claim the train failed to stop as it pulled into the station, hitting a barrier at the end of the platform before falling off the tracks.

Pictures from the scene show considerable damage caused to both the inside and outside of the train, as well as to the platform.

The station is the final stop on the Richmond line and all trains on the line to Central.

Sydney Trains CEO Howard Collins said the incident will be investigated but it was too early to say what caused the crash

Sydney Trains CEO Howard Collins said the incident will be investigated but it was too early to say what caused the crash.

'I understand that the train on Platform 2 at Richmond has hit the buffers pretty hard,' he said.

'It is a Waratah train, it is one of our new trains, so we'll have a lot of good information about the train but it is too early to say.

'My first thoughts are those people who have suffered some sort of injury. We don't believe any of those are life threatening or serious.'
