HAZ-MAT called to train derailment

July 17, 2013

Untitled_20130717210350_320_240.JPG

"BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - HAZ-MAT crews were called to the CSX rail line in Buffalo Wednesday when three cars jumped the tracks.

A train with two locomotives and 70 cars was heading from Indianapolis, Indiana to Selkirk, NY, which is near Albany, when the last three cars derailed around 7:30 p.m. Two of the cars contained plastic pellets and there was some spillage. The other was a tanker that contained ethanol, and though there was a small leak, it was quickly secured. HAZ-MAT crews were then called off."

why would the last 3 cars of a train derail.????  suggestions??? perhaps something on or near the track that causes a problem?  This makes no sense, unless the tracks had been compromised by something, someone and having all the cars travel over them, causes some sort of problem..hmmm, interesting.  How about a small explosive device or someone possibly removing part of a railroad tie??  This is the way Redd and I are thinking.  anyone else??  Getting to be a daily occurrence.

Major Delays At LaGuardia Following Southwest Plane’s Landing Mishap

Port Authority: Front Gear Buckles While Aircraft Taxis; 6 Injuries Reported

July 22, 2013 9:05 PM

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Air traffic was shut down at LaGuardia Airport early Monday evening, after a plane’s nose gear collapsed following a landing.

According to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates LaGuardia, the front wheel of Southwest Airlines Flight 345 from Nashville to LaGuardia popped while the plane was taxiing on Runway 4 around 5:40 p.m. The gear then buckled, forcing the nose to the tarmac.

well, back in June of 2011 they had some 9 ft stretches of the track stolen right out from under them, wonder if the thieves are at work again, however, this one does not mention theft of rr track.

Train derails, crashes through building

July 23, 2013

Still0723_00044.jpg

"DENVER - A train derailed Tuesday morning and went crashing through a building in the 4400 block of Sherman Street in Denver.

According to a witness, it hopped a ravine, landed in the alley - about 10 feet from residential garages. The witness claimed houses shook when the train made impact with the nearby building.

The Burlington North Santa Fe director of public affairs Andy Williams said the train derailed and hit a jet-blower in the shed as it crashed through.

The jet-blower is stored in the shed and is used to blow snow and ice off the tracks during the winter months.

When the train derailed, it pushed the jet-blower through the garage door of the shed."

I see the carriage behind the locomotive disconnect (see the level difference between it and the loc.) before the curve. How can that be? (0:04min).

Maybe he drove too fast but then it should occur IN the curve, not before.

It looks to me as though there was a package laying on that track, the Engine started over it, and it blew.  There WAS an explosion, then the train derailed.  Watch it again, I'm sure I'm not seeing things.

Newark Airport: ‘Smoke Condition’ Forces United Airlines Plane Emergency Landing

By Jack Phillips, Epoch Times | July 25, 2013

newark_01-676x343.jpg

"A United Airlines plane at Newark Liberty International Airport reportedly was smoking on Thursday morning. The the plane had to make an emergency landing due to smoke in the cockpit, according to NBC News.

ABC-7 TV’s Twitter feed broke the story, saying there is a “smoke condition aboard United Airlines plane at Newark Airport.” A later report identified the plane as United Express Flight 4890 from Pittsburgh.

The plane was towed off the runway shortly after, according to MyFoxNy.com.

A person on the flight wrote on Instagram: “Emergency landed back in Newark bcos the plane was on fire!! Couldn’t breathe/see a thing on the plane.”

Another report from Chris Shepherd WPBF-25 News said: “Emergency crews surrounding an airplane on the tarmac at Newark Liberty International Airport. Reports of smoke on board.”

Spanish Train Inquiry Focuses on Driver With a Taste for Speed

By SILVIA TAULÉS and DOREEN CARVAJAL

Published: July 25, 2013

SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, Spain — The train driver did little to hide his taste for speed. He posted a photograph of a locomotive speedometer needle stuck at 200 kilometers, or about 125 miles, per hour on Facebook last year, boasting that the reading “has not been tampered with” and openly relishing the idea of racing past the authoritie

What's with all these train derailments seems to one everyday ,and these reports make me wonder as well

Earlier reports said the driver made a panicked phone call moments before the crash saying that the train was going too fast.

"I'm at 190 (kmph) and I'm going to derail!" the engine driver told the controllers of RENFE, the rail network.

I am just going to say it upfront... i believe this is all part of the big plan, to fear the people with yet another Y2K nutjob theory just to angst the people. Only this time the government is responsible.

It's going to happen soon folks

When you rub two pieces of iron together there would consist friction wich would cause heat what would cause the iron to set out.

ok. these bullet trains are made for speed. That is one of their purposes, to get from point A to point B, quick as possible.  When Japan built the first one, I believe it went several hundred kilometers an  hour. In fact, I believe it was about 320. I remember it, because it made me wonder why the hell that speed was necessary, but for commuters, well it made things awful convenient to work great distances away.  They are built for speed, period. Here is a video to show you, one going at 574.8 kph, and it does not derail, even going around a curve like the one doing a slight 120kph.  I am not buying the speeding story, sorry about that. Not only that, please think about this too.  "They" can take control anything that is computerized  or electrified. Seems to me that these bullet trains are both. One thing I have noticed also, is that any of the planes, or passenger trains that have had problems, are carrying over 200 and mostly close to 300 or more passengers.  Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, and sometimes it is not.  Here is the video.

Bullet trains are not built the same as conventional trains.

They have devices that hold them on the track.

The cars are not coupled the same..

There are a great many differences..

That one has to consider.
