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.

How did it happen AGAIN? Furious Ohioans demand answers after fourth Norfolk Southern train derailed in the state in less than five months - as incredible aerial images capture the entire 22-car derailment

  • Norfolk Southern derailment in Ohio on Saturday involved no hazardous material
  • The derailments was the companies fourth in Ohio in less than five months
  • Ohio lawmakers have introduced a bill that to improve railroad standards 

Authorities have said the latest Norfolk Southern train derailment in Ohio this Saturday did not result in the spillage of any hazardous materials and poses no health risk.

Nonetheless, more than 1,500 residents of Clark County were left without power and those within 1,000-feet of the site were told to shelter in place 'out of caution'. 

The 22-car derailment came just a month after a huge 38-car crash in East Palestine made international headlines on February 3 and marks the company's fourth derailment in the state in less than five months.

Clark County officials say about 20 of the southbound train's 212 cars, including four tankers, derailed at about 4.45pm on Saturday.

The four tankers contained non-hazardous materials, which are not considered dangerous. Two carried residual amounts of diesel exhaust fluid and another two had residual amounts of polyacrylamide water solution, they said. 

It happened by Ohio 41, near the Prime Ohio Business Park near Springfield, which is about 46 miles west of the state capital of Columbus.

'Sandusky, Steubenville, East Palestine, and now Springfield - all in the last five months. This is unacceptable,' wrote Ohio senator Sherrod Brown on Twitter.

Brown is now one of a handful of leaders that wants to see tougher legislation restrict how Norfolk Southern and other railroad companies are allows to operate.

'It's why we must pass my bipartisan Rail Safety Act now.,' he added. Brown introduced the legislation with Republican JD Vance and four other senators last Wednesday. 

'We know that overheated wheel bearings have been the cause of most [derailments], we're not doing the inspections well. That will change,' said Brown on ABC's This Week on Sunday.

Brown also blamed the way rail companies like Norfolk Southern that have sought to cut costs by laying off engineers that can supervise trains.

'The railroads want to be able to drive 150 or 200 cars through a community with one engineer, one staff person, because they keep laying off people,' he added.

He also said he wants to see inspections forced upon the operators.

'We want to see more inspections, these inspections because they've laid off so many workers, they're really just cursory inspections on the rails, on the coupling of the cars, on the locomotives,' he added.

'When you lay off a third of the workforce you clearly are compromising the work that those workers are doing.' 

Authorities in Ohio said there was no indication of any risk to public health from the derailment of a Norfolk Southern cargo train, which happened between Dayton and Columbus.

As a precaution, residents living within 1,000 feet were asked to shelter in place and responding firefighters deployed the county hazmat team as a precaution, but officials said early on Sunday the train wasn't carrying hazardous materials and there was 'no indication of any injuries or risk to public health at this time.'

A crew from Norfolk Southern, the hazmat team and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency 'each independently examined the crash site and verified there was no evidence of spillage at the site,' officials said.

Norfolk Southern said no hazardous materials were involved, county officials said earlier.

County officials also say environmental officials have confirmed that the derailment is not near a protected water source, meaning there is no risk to public water systems or private wells.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg tweeted on Saturday night that he had been briefed by Federal Railroad Administration staff about the derailment, and had also spoken to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.

'No hazardous material release has been reported, but we will continue to monitor closely and FRA personnel are en route,' Buttigieg said.

DeWine said late on Saturday night that President Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg had called him 'to offer help from the federal government.'

On February 3, 38 cars of a Norfolk Southern freight train in East Palestine, in northeast Ohio near Pennsylvania, derailed and several of the train's cars carrying hazardous materials burned.

Though no one was injured, nearby neighborhoods in both states were imperiled. 

The crash prompted an evacuation of about half the town's roughly 5,000 residents, an ongoing multigovernmental emergency response and lingering worries among villagers of long-term health impacts.

A freight train derailment in Ohio near the Pennsylvania state line left a mangled and charred mass of boxcars and flames Saturday as authorities launched a federal investigation and monitored air quality from the various hazardous chemicals in the train.

About 50 cars derailed in East Palestine at about 9 p.m. EST Friday as a train was carrying a variety of products from Madison, Illinois, to Conway, Pennsylvania, rail operator Norfolk Southern said Saturday. There was no immediate information about what caused the derailment. No injuries or damage to structures were reported.

“The post-derailment fire spanned about the length of the derailed train cars,” Michael Graham, a member of the National Transportation Safety Board, told reporters Saturday evening. “The fire has since reduced in intensity, but remains active and the two main tracks are still blocked.”

Norfolk Southern said 20 of the more than 100 cars were classified as carrying hazardous materials — defined as cargo that could pose any kind of danger “including flammables, combustibles, or environmental risks.” Graham said 14 cars carrying vinyl chloride were involved in the derailment “and have been exposed to fire,” and at least one “is intermittently releasing the contents of the car through a pressure release device as designed.”

Train derails on Columbus Ave. overpass in Sandusky

The city says there are no known injuries from the derailment.

 9:16 PM EDT October 8, 2022

SANDUSKY, Ohio — A train derailment in Sandusky on Saturday afternoon closed a main road in the city and knocked out power for those in the area.

The Norfolk Southern train derailed around 4 p.m. at the Columbus Ave. overpass.

Columbus Ave. and the Campbell St. rail crossing had to be closed due to the derailment, according to the City of Sandusky’s Twitter page.

There are no known injuries related to the derailment.

In a photograph of the incident, multiple rail cars can be seen spilled over the overpass and onto the road.

A spokesman for Norfolk Southern says the train had 101 total cars and a preliminary count of the cars that derailed totaled approximately 10.

Norfolk Southern says the train was hauling paraffin wax which is non-toxic.

The city says there was a leak of the wax but it has since hardened and poses no danger.

The line on which the train derailed is a major east-west rail line for freight and passenger trains.

Amtrak announced delays and the rerouting of service for many of their trains due to the derailment throughout the evening on Saturday.

1 dead after train derails in Texas and hits gas line, forcing dozens of residents to evacuate

Chantal Da Silva - 4h ago

One person is dead after a train derailed in El Paso, Texas, hitting a gas line and forcing residents to evacuate the area Monday night, officials said.

The El Paso Fire Department said late Monday that crews had responded to an incident where two train cars derailed, damaging a backyard shed, a fence and a gas meter.

It said nearby homes had been evacuated "as a safety precaution" and urged others to avoid the area of Franklin and Barton as it was an "active emergency scene."

The fire department later announced that at least one person had died in the train derailment. It was not clear how they died and officials did not release any details on the victim's identity. No other injuries were reported, the fire department said.

In an update around two hours after initially reporting the incident, the fire department said the damaged gas line had been shut down and evacuation orders were lifted. It said around 50 residents had been allowed back into their homes.

It was not immediately clear what caused the train derailment.

Highway 39 closed near Rouleau, Sask. following train derailment

Highway 39 is expected to be closed for several hours near Rouleau, Sask., after a train derailment occurred.

Saskatchewan RCMP said officers with the Milestone detachment are on scene and there are no reported injuries.

READ MORE: CP freight train derails near Drinkwater

An RCMP statement added the derailment did not occur at a level crossing.

A CP Rail spokesperson added there are no public safety concerns in a statement to Global News.

CP Rail said the freight train derailed between Rouleau and Wilcox around 6:45 a.m.

The incident is under investigation.

Rouleau resident Jackie Krasko saw the aftermath of the derailment on her way to work Wednesday morning.

“I was shocked to see it but I was happy that it was not oil or liquid natural gas tank cars that came off the rail … because that could have been an explosion,” Krasko told Global News.

Krasko pointed to other recent derailments such as one this past weekend near Drinkwater, Sask. as “scary” incidents.

“I think about (Lac-Mégantic train derailment) and I mean if it hit close to our Rouleau I’m sure it’s going to start a fire and if the oil and liquid natural gas …explodes, I think we could lose our whole town.”

Drivers are asked to check the Highway Hotline for updated information before travelling in the area.

RCMP said drivers can expect delays in this area and are asked to follow officer directions at the scene.

Drivers are also reminded to slow down to 60 km/h when passing emergency workers.

The train cars tipped over appeared to be carrying vehicles. Crews are currently on scene with cranes attempting to stand the cars back up.

Dozens dead in DR Congo train accident: Rail company

Local media quoted the provincial governor as saying 60 people had been killed.


A train crash in the southeastern Democratic Republic of the Congo has killed at least 60 people, the state rail company and local sources said.

“[Currently] the toll is 61 dead, men, women and children [and] 52 injured who have been evacuated,” Marc Manyonga Ndambo, director of infrastructure at the SNCC train operator, told the AFP news agency on Saturday.

Local media quoted the provincial governor, Fifi Masuka, as saying 60 people had been killed.


It was a freight train which was carrying “several hundred stowaways”, said Manyonga.

Manyonga said the train was made up of 15 wagons, 12 of which were empty. It was coming from Luen in a neighboring province destined for the mining town of Tenke, close to Kolwezi, the capital of Lualaba province in southern DRC.

It derailed at 11:50pm (21:50 GMT) on Thursday near the village of Buyofwe, about 200km (125 miles) from Kolwezi, “at a place where there are ravines”, into which seven of the 15 wagons fell, he said.

“My team is working hard to clear the track by Monday,” Manyonga added. He did not say how the crash had happened.

Train derailments are common in the DRC, as are shipwrecks of overloaded boats on the country’s lakes and rivers.

Due to the lack of passenger trains or passable roads, people use goods trains to travel long distances.

Last October, nine people died after a train derailed in the city of Kenzenze in the territory of Mutshatsha in the same province.

Washington, DC metro train DERAILS in tunnel, major line shut down during rush hour
A metro train serving the US capital has partially gone off the rails in a tunnel connecting Washington, DC with Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, stranding around 400 passengers and snarling up the evening commute.
Service between the Pentagon and Foggy Bottom was suspended on Tuesday afternoon, after a Blue Line train derailed in the Rosslyn tunnel, local media reported. Only one of the cars in the train, with 25 passengers on board, had lost contact with the rails – but that stranded the entire 12-car train, with an estimated 400 people stuck in the tunnel for over an hour.
