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.

Romania: 2 train drivers die after train derails on a bridge

Published April 08, 2017

Authorities say two train drivers have died in western Romania after their cargo train derailed on a bridge.

Romania's CFR railways said 14 of the train's 16 carriages overturned Saturday afternoon and some of the carriages were hanging over the edge of a bridge.

Police spokesman Bogdan Nitu said railway traffic was blocked in the town of Petrosani near the Jiu Valley after the accident. He said the transportation ministry was investigating the cause of the accident.

A CFR statement said the initial cause was believed to be a defect with the train's brakes.

Train derails in Melrose; no injuries reported

April 06, 2017 06:55 AM

MELROSE, N.M. -- A BNSF freight train collided with a tractor-trailer in a southeastern New Mexico town Wednesday morning, causing 10 cars to derail and forcing the train's front two engines to roll on their side.

Officials said there were no injuries from the crash in Melrose, and they are trying to determine why the tractor-trailer stopped at the railroad crossing.

The collision happened around 10 a.m. and closed the rail line in both directions indefinitely. The tracks are one of the main transcontinental lines in the United States.

5 injured in NJ Transit slow-speed derailment at NYC's Penn Station



Kevin McCoy , USA TODAY Published 10:11 a.m. ET April 3, 2017

A minor New Jersey Transit train derailment occurred in Penn Station. There were a few reported injuries, but nothing serious. However, there were widespread delays for commuters. USA TODAY

NEW YORK — At least five people suffered non-life-threatening injuries Monday when a New Jersey Transit train derailed in New York City’s Penn Station near the end of the morning rush hour, authorities said.

The slow-speed derailment marked the second such incident within little more than two weeks at the rail station on Manhattan's West Side, one of the nation’s most heavily traveled mass transit hubs.

The derailment, which occurred around 9 a.m., injured five rail passengers about the northbound NJ Transit train, the Fire Department of New York said. Some of the injured passengers were taken to Bellevue Medical Center for evaluation and treatment, the agency said.

The injured riders were among approximately 1,200 passengers aboard NJ Transit's 7:31 a.m. Northeast Corridor train No. 3926 traveling from Trenton, N.J., to Manhattan, said Nancy Snyder, a spokeswoman for the commuter rail line.

Commuter Tiffany Maxine said the train jolted, and she felt the car in which she was riding shift beneath her as a result of the incident, the Associated Press reported.

The derailment occurred as the train eased through its arrival on Penn Station's track nine. Train personnel safely escorted all of the passengers to exits in the rear of the train and onto rail platforms, Snyder said.

All NJ Transit Service into and out of Penn Station was suspended shortly after the incident, the commuter rail line's Twitter feed reported.

However, NJ Transit train service to New Jersey stations in Newark and Secaucus remained in operation, Snyder said. Midtown Direct line trains from western New Jersey were ending their routes at the Hoboken, N.J., station, where large crowds of commuters tried to reach PATH train service into Manhattan.

PATH trains, New York Waterway service, NJ Transit buses and private bus carriers were cross-honoring NJ Transit rail tickets, Snyder said.

Amtrak, which controls and maintains Penn Station rails, advised that operations on its heavily traveled Acela and Northeast Regional lines between Newark and New York City would be subject to delays after the derailment. Amtrak's Keystone line between New York and Harrisburg, Pa., by way of Philadelphia, could be modified, the national rail carrier said.

Monday's derailment gave Penn Station commuters an unwelcome jolt of deja vu.

An Amtrak Acela express train experienced a minor derailment while departing Penn Station at slow speed on March 24. All 248 passengers aboard that train exited safely onto the platform and into the station.

That incident delayed Amtrak service for hours. The derailment also forced similar delays and cancellations in some NJ Transit and Long Island Rail Road evening rush hour service.

At least 38 injured after 8 coaches of the Mahakaushal Express derails near Mahoba


At least 38 injured after 8 coaches of the Mahakaushal Express derails near Mahoba
Mar 29, 2017 | 23:10 IST | SOURCE : Times Now, Agencies

Uttar Pradesh: In a tragic incident, eight coaches of the Jabalpur-Nizamuddin Mahakoshal Express have derailed near the Mahoba station in Uttar Pradesh, and at least 38 passengers have reportedly been injured, as per reports.

The chief Public relations officer, North Central Railway, said accident took place at around 2.00 AM near Kulpahar in Mahoba. The official told that an emergency relief train has been rushed to the spot from Jhansi and the injured have been provided first aid. Most of the injured have been taken to a nearby hospital in Banda.

Close to eight coaches of the express derailed between the Mahoba and Kupahar stations, the official added. It has come to light three AC coaches and close to five general coaches toppled over, injuring close to 38 passengers.

Senior level officials including the general manager of the North Central Railway has reached the spot, and rescue operations started soon after the incident took place. The railway authorities have also released helpline numbers.

The cause of the derailment has not yet been figured out, and a probable investigation will be conducted as soon as the rescue operations end.

This accident again brings the spotlight on Uttar Pradesh, where a slew of train accidents have been suspected to terror activities over the past few months.

An NIA investigation has hinted that Pakistan’s ISI were involved similar incidents that have kept UP railway authorities on high alert. This incident too, will be thoroughly investigated to find out whether it was an accident or a planned terror attack.

GENEVA (AP) — An Italian train derailed in the central Swiss city of Lucerne on Wednesday and one carriage tipped over, injuring seven people on board.

The train from Milan in northern Italy to the northwestern Swiss city of Basel derailed shortly before 2 p.m. as it was pulling out of Lucerne's main train station, Swiss railway company SBB said.

The Trenitalia train's fourth carriage tipped over and a power line was interrupted. There were 160 passengers aboard at the time.

Toni Haene, the head of passenger rail services at SBB, said seven people suffered minor injuries.

The evacuation of the train was delayed due to safety concerns until the severed power line switched off.

SBB said that train service to and from the station was suspended at least for the rest of the day.

There was no immediate word on the cause of the derailment.

Trenitalia said its own experts as well as those from the train manufacturer have been sent to Lucerne to help investigate the incident.

Train derails in Peach County, closes short railroad line for about a week

A Georgia Southern Railroad train derailed Monday, March 13, 2017, in Peach County, blocking the north end of Gracewood Road at Ga. 341. Six of the enclosed 21 cars turned over. 

A train derailment Monday morning has closed a short railroad line from Fort Valley to Perry for likely a week, a railroad company official says.

No one was hurt when the Georgia Southern Railroad train of two locomotives and 21 encased tank cars derailed about 10:18 a.m.

Six of the tank cars weighing at least 286,000 pounds overturned on the tracks that parallel Ga. 341 but remained intact, said Tom Black, vice president for safety and transportation for the railroad.

The closure impacts about five railroad customers, including Reeves Construction, which was expecting the shipment of asphalt, Black said.

The derailment also blocked the northern end of Gracewood Road, a dirt road. Railroad crews were dispatched Monday afternoon to detach and move the standing cars over the Gracewood Road railroad crossing.

But the six overturned cars will take more time to remove from the track, with the railroad line expected to be closed for about a week, Black said.

The cause of the derailment has not yet been determined, and an investigator was on site Monday. Speed was not a factor, and the tracks were well maintained, Black said.

Peach County sheriff’s deputies dispatched to the scene took some photos that were posted to the agency’s Facebook page.

“We have all kinds of trains around here, and it’s rare for us to have a derailment like that,” Sheriff Terry Deese said.

“We’re just glad nobody was hurt.”

Fuel tank cars burn after freight train derails in Iowa



Associated Press Published 9:06 a.m. CT March 10, 2017

GRAETTINGER, Ia. — Several fuel tank cars carrying ethanol burst into flames before dawn Friday after a freight train derailed in northwestern Iowa, authorities said.

The derailment occurred around 1 a.m., near Graettinger, about 160 miles northwest of Des Moines, the Palo Alto County Sheriff's Office said in a news release. It said two crew members escaped unharmed. Nearby residents were asked to evacuate the area and no injuries have been reported.

Raquel Espinoza, a spokeswoman for Union Pacific, confirmed that the train is operated by that railroad company, but she declined to say more, referring questions to the National Transportation Safety Board.

Palo Alto County emergency management director Mark Hunefeld said at least 27 of 101 cars derailed, including the burning tanks. Eight cars were still burning as of 7 a.m., the sheriff's office said. Railroad personnel were able to unhitch 74 loaded tankers and move them from the site.

Sasha Forsen, spokeswoman for Green Plains Inc. in Omaha, confirmed that the tanks had been filled with ethanol at the company's plant in Superior, Iowa. She declined to say where the shipment was heading.

NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway said agency investigators would be at the derailment site to determine the cause of the accident Friday afternoon.

Freight Train Derails in Blue Island

An eastbound freight train derailed in south suburban Blue Island during rush hour Tuesday afternoon.

Several cars were seen off the tracks and flipped at 135th Street and Chatham.

It was not immediately clear what caused the derailment. No one was injured. The three derailed cars were empty and the other cars were carrying mixed freight.

"Safety is CSX’s highest priority, and that includes the safety of our employees and the communities where we operate. Our goal is zero accidents, and we work to achieve that goal every day," a spokesman for the rail company said in a statement. "The cause of this incident will be investigated, and any lessons learned through the investigation will be applied to avoid additional, similar events in the future. We apologize for any disruptions this has caused nearby residents."

The cleanup process was expected to last into the morning hours of Wednesday, the spokesman said.

There were no major traffic disruptions.

Hazardous cargo train derails in New York state but cars unbreached

A CSX Corp freight train containing hazardous materials partially derailed in the area of Newburgh, New York, on Tuesday, but the cars with dangerous substances appear to have been unbreached, an official with the railroad company said.

Diesel fuel did leak on the ground from three locomotives that derailed, and CSX sent hazardous materials and environmental experts to deal with the spill, company spokesman Rob Doolittle said in an email statement.

Some of the 20 railroad cars that derailed were carrying the hazardous materials sulfuric acid, sodium hydroxide and aqueous bisulfites, the statement said.

"There are still no reports of any leaks or spills of hazardous materials from those cars," it said.

The cause of the derailment, which occurred about 60 miles (97 km) north of New York City, is under investigation.

Two CSX maintenance employees who at the time were working in the area were transported to area hospitals for injuries that are not believed to be life threatening, Doolittle said in the email.

The train was traveling from Selkirk, New York, to Waycross, Georgia, according to CSX. Dozens of cars in the train stayed on the tracks.

The Times Herald-Record, a newspaper based in nearby Middletown, said the train derailed after striking a forklift being driven across the tracks, citing officials and witnesses.

A representative for the Orange County, New York, office of emergency management, which was handling the derailment, could not immediately be reached for comment

The derailment occurred on the same day that a CSX cargo train struck a tour bus that officials say was stopped at a railroad crossing in Biloxi, Mississippi, in a collision that killed four people.
