Today's 'other' railroad news
Permalink  
 


More horror stories of limb loss goes to a 43yr old woman in Aberdeen Wa as an
eastbound freight in an area where there is the lowlife. Then the heatwave in Eastern
WA and Central BC and now heavy rains and now very serious/record flooding going on.
These are the kinds of floods that can take a large chunk of a branchline out in some
cases "forever". The ex-BN line from Kettle Falls northwards in several branches now owned
by Omnitrax as the "Kettle Falls International RR". They got some big problems right now.

To finish out this horrible Mars square Uranus effect on things a CSX train derailed in
Alexandria VA. TO has a CSX derailment at Franconia VA as well. Might be the same.

Sometimes news takes time to assemble then posted. 3 derailments in one week
at Norris Yard which I need some help in which city that is in. This would be a week
of Mars square Uranus celestial working conditions.

Norris Yard is Birmingham. It's really in Irondale.

Moving on to our next celestial aspect where a derailment might happen and
Venus oppose Saturn in effect and there was one in Aurora Ill on the BNSF and
its a busy track. This is a stretch of the BNSF where things have to go nearly perfect
everyday with the volume of freight and passenger. BNSF repair crews working non-stop
on Memorial Day wages. That could be the "Venus" part of it but the Saturn part of it
is disruption and work to get the trains running again when you had a weekend planned
with the family in a rented RV.

Other things that can happen during "Venus oppose Saturn" on the railroad is
a very highly traveled railroad bridge is without power due to marine traffic
snagging a powerline or something like that. I've been in a situation like this.

You have to think that with this condensed blob of aspects:
Sun conjunct Mercury/Venus oppose Pluto/Sun-Mercury square Neptune that
it will effect the railroads somewhere. It effected the BNSF with a train hit truck
in Valentine AZ and rear ender in Stockton has train traffic backed up.

So discovering a live webcam at Skykomish WA now on YouTube was a welcome
new addition to the rest. I figured if I turn on my rr scanner I could get more insight
as to how many trains might be in the Skykomish area. I saw a westbound BNSF Z9
train followed by a Q-train. So about 4PM or so an eastbound EVESPO (Everett-Spokane)
departed Lowell/Everett and made it just west of Monroe like 12 miles from Everett and
is stopped investigating "flatspots" on the lead locomotive. I can hear the dispr OK but
what the train crew was saying is not real loud and clear. Something about a flatspot/s
measuring 4-5" big. Since it was the lead locomotive you would think a flatspot of that
size would be felt leaving Delta Yard for Lowell. I'm thinking maybe a chunk of the wheel
came off. Many particulars I don't know. Sometimes you hear a dispr talking/thinking a situation
out on the radio. With a flatspot that size 10mph....no 5mph...I need to talk to the Chief.
So the EVESPO really put a fuck into things as it had the WB Z9 waiting at East Monroe for
the powers that is to get some officials out there to give the OK for EVESPO to make into
the controlled siding in Monroe. Get the Z9 by after an hour delay maybe more. Now what to
do with the lead unit that cant go no farther. Monroe has some places to setout a unit but
in the meantime you got 4 busy grade crossing blocked. The EVESPO had to cut the train at
the crossings. So original crew went 12 miles and spent 3-4hrs in Monroe. Setout the bad unit
and put the train back together and now the train is underpowered for Stevens Pass. Need to
find another unit and one was robbed off a WB at Gold Bar with a whole bunch of talking by
red signals. Orig EVESPO crew made it as far as Gold Bar. Not sure if I will find anymore about
the 4-5" flatspot.

A P.S. watched the EVESPO pull into Skykomish about 01:30hrs Thursday having only gone 50 miles

with its 2nd crew and of course they are waiting for WB so who knows when this train will get to Wenatchee.

Friday the 15th I turn on my rr scanner about 11AM and the first thing I hear is the dispr
saying that its up to the police when AMTK can leave 136th St North Marysville (South English).
OH Boy AMTK (Vancouver BC-Seattle) hit a vehicle at 9AM something and the investigation
is taking hours as per usual. The AMTK train already going on 3hrs late when they get the
"go ahead" to Everett and beyond. This train had a few more problems in Everett doing some
brake tests or something. One of those new "WasDot" locomotives on the point. AMTK had to
be doing 70mph+ at this grade crossing. The Everett Herald has something on it. So your celestial
aspects for this "accident" was Venus square Uranus/Mercury oppose Saturn.

CN crash at Rice Point Wisconsin Saturday 6-16-18 on the ex-WC. Large mess to clean up.
www.trainorders.com/discussion/read.php

Listening to BNSF airwaves Sunday a WB Q-train that was on the live webcam at Skykomish from
10:30AM to after 1:30PM waiting for a fleet of eastbounds. When they got going west of Sky
I was hearing the Seattle East Dispr Ok but the Q-train reported at bridge MP 1754 that when
they approached the bridge (50MPH) a bunch of trespassers had no option but to jump off the
bridge to the icy river below. The Q-train stopped and they walked back a long ways to the bridge
to see if any of the jumpers needed help but none could be found. I saw no news stories on this
so far. So either they all drowned or made it to shore.


To finish the Fathers Day weekend a pedestrian kilt by a train at the Edmonds WA ferry crossing
on the BNSF single track through town.

www.heraldnet.com/news/pedestrian-hit-and-killed-by-train-in-edmonds/

This is the tail-end of Venus square Uranus/Mercury square Saturn few days.

Got nothing to do with nothing,  but I was doing some little league train watching

on the northbound NSC.  Saw a mixed manifest on a good sized train.  About 90%

were green double stacked boxes with EMP printed on side. 

All were free of grafiti and looked clean.  Headed toward Cincinnati.

Any ideas?

EMP?  -------------------out.

 Heh, "Snippy" knew it was a consortium like HUB or something. We always called them Empresses. Thought that they had a real name, not just EMP. They were super scalding HAWT!!!

*cy*, sometimes we had to handle more than three carloads of them.

The CSX train derailment in Princeton IN on Sunday 06-17-18 has been posted in the CSX section
for more details. I add the TO link and thoughts from the western section. There is a link from the
eastern section that is different if you care. Once again the tail-end of Venus square Uranus/Mercury
oppose Saturn few days.
