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 ethanol derails leading to evacuations

EAGLE LAKE — Four Canadian Pacific eastbound rail cars carrying ethanol went off their tracks in Eagle Lake about 4:45 p.m. Wednesday, prompting the evacuation of 320 nearby residents.

“There was no leaking. We did that as a precautionary measure,” Eagle Lake Mayor Tim Auringer said.

Canadian Pacific spokesman Mike Lovecchio said the derailment along Highway 14 on the northeast edge of town involved no injuries and the cause has yet to be determined.

The Salvation Army and the Red Cross set up an emergency shelter center at the Eagle Lake American Legion, but Auringer said Wednesday night that most of those evacuated had found lodging in Mankato motels or with friends and relatives.

He said about 60 housing units — townhomes and single-family residences — were affected and Canadian Pacific personnel would be draining the cars of ethanol overnight.

He said residents would be allowed back into their homes sometime today.

Normal service restored on Blue Line after derailment near O’Hare



A woman was hospitalized and Blue Line service near O’Hare Airport was disrupted for more than five hours after a train car derailed near the airport station Tuesday afternoon.

 

The Blue Line train was leaving the O’Hare station when it derailed at 4:47 p.m. while going through an interlocking switch, CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski said.

 

Fire Media Affairs Director Larry Langford said the derailment happened in a tunnel about 1,000 feet from the station.

 

One woman suffered a minor shoulder injury and was taken to an area hospital for treatment, Langford said. No other injuries were reported.

 

Passengers were safely escorted off the train and back to the O’Hare station platform, Hosinski said.

Train derailment in eastern India kills one

KOLKATA, India -- Officials say a train accident in eastern India has caused one fatality and at least several injured.

Barun Bharadwaj, a senior railway official, said the accident occurred late Sunday near Malda, 185 miles (300 kilometers) northeast of Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal.

He said that three coaches and the engine of the Gauhati-Bangalore express derailed and were thrown into the path of the oncoming Azimganj express.

Earlier this month at least 68 people were killed when a packed passenger train derailed in north India.

India's railroad network is one of the largest in the world and carries about 14 million passengers each day. Accidents are common, with most blamed on poor maintenance and human error.

One killed, 50 hurt in Bengal train accident

Last Updated: Sunday, July 31, 2011, 22:53

Kolkata: At least one person was killed and 50 were injured when 11 bogies of Guwahati-Bengaluru Express and a passenger train derailed after a collision this evening at Jamirghata in West Bengal's Malda district.

Malda GRP sources said one passenger was killed and 50 were injured.

Railway spokesperson Anil Kumar Saxena said the body of an elderly woman was found near the derailed engine of the Guwahati-Bengaluru Express.

The accident occurred between Gour Malda and Jamirghata stations in Malda division of Eastern Railway at 19:05 hours.

Two bogies and the engine of the Guwahati-Bengaluru Express, which was on its way to the southern city, derailed first and were hit by the Azimganj-Malda Town Passenger leading to further derailment of bogies of both the trains, Railway sources said.


While six coaches - three sleeper class, two parcel and one luggage - and the engine of Guwahati-Bengaluru Express derailed, three general bogies and the engine of the passenger train also derailed, they said.

The passenger train was coming from the opposite direction on the second line when the driver applied emergency brakes after seeing the derailed coaches but could not stop it from brushing the coaches.

The accident has affected train services on Malda route with seven trains cancelled.

Helplines have been set up at Howrah (033-26411416), Malda (03512-283444) and Rampurhat (03461-255131) rail stations for the public.

Senior Eastern Railways officials are supervising rescue operation at the scene.

Local villagers immediately came to the accident spot and ferried the injured to clinics and hospitals.

Saptarshi Deb, a passenger on the Express train, said that he came out of the emergency exit after the accident.

Deb said that he heard screams of trapped passengers and saw some passengers with head injuries.

EUNICE CITY, La. — Ever since a string of train cars derailed in 2000, dumping hazardous materials and chemicals into the bayous and Eunice City Lake, lots of folks have been turned off of fishing.

Although lake fish are safe to eat, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says fears about contamination have prompted them to use $1 million in money left over from federal court proceedings against Union Pacific Railroad to drain the lake and remove all the fish. It will then be restocked with bass, bluegill, red-ear sunfish and sac-a-lait.

Thirty-three cars of an eastbound Union Pacific train derailed northwest of Eunice on a bridge crossing a tributary to Bayou Des Cannes. Fifteen cars contained hazardous materials and chemicals and two rail cars exploded.

Freight Train Derails Outside Tbilisi
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 30 Jul.'11 / 19:52


 

 


Screen grab from Rustavi 2 TV footage showing derailed cars from the incident site on July 30 close to Mtskheta.

Cargo train hauling over dozen of cars, carrying fuel and other types of products, derailed close to Mtskheta, a small town outside Tbilisi on July 30, an emergency service official said.

Ten rail cars, including those carrying fuel, have left the track and overturned as a result of the incident in which no one was injured, Nodar Chumbadze, an official from the emergency services management agency, told Rustavi 2 TV.

Fuel was spilled, he said, and to prevent fire the incident site was filled with foam by fire fighting teams. Fuel also spilled over on a section of the main east-west highway, running close to the site where the derailment occurred, disrupting movement on the highway too.

According to preliminary information one of the rail cars was “technically faulty” which caused the derailment, Irma Stepnadze, a spokesperson for the state-run Georgian Railway, told Civil.ge.

She said that the freight train was carrying cargo belonging to various firms, including from Georgia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.
 
The derailment will cause at least two hour delays in schedule of passenger trains, planning to head from Tbilisi to the western part of the country, according to the Georgian Railway.
