I recall once seeing a YouTube Cab Ride video of the express passenger line north from Washington but unlike Warren Buffet’s 60 Mph max wild west Great ( Oil Train ) Smashem & Cheetam Railway it has more in common with the French TGV. As usual the safety authorities are already attempting to portray that the cause was driver error and how he was ” Speeding ” around a curve !
However, I can’t help speculating that the said ” accident ” was the result of deliberate sabotage as sponsored by Wall Street in an attempt to get Americans back flying again after the collateral damage done by my Alps Crash article and subsequent comments being tweeted Worldwide and especially in the USA ?
I own a copy of the Britiish Railway safety history Bible Red For Danger plus an angle on other angles on railway derailments from my fairly extensive collection of railway engineering history books. Examining the possibilities the said US accident could be due to the following.
1. A signalling computer malfunction as in former GWR main line into London Paddington ” accidents ” at first Southall and then not that long after Ladbroke Grove.
The Southall crash occured after an empty westbound aggregate train was put out across the main line when a late running High Speed Train was speeding towards Paddington in an attempt to make up lost time to meet the then punctuality targets and avoid fines. The excuse for letting out the freight train was also punctuality targets but it would appear that the HST driver was met by a red signal at the last minute giving him just enough time to abandon the cab and seek some protection in the engine compartment. The blame was pinned on the fact that the Automatic Warning System in east facing power was inoperative despite the fact that AWS was originally developed for use in Fog yet it was clear that day. In any case the 4 aspect ( on all UK high speed lines ) signalling system gives you ample warming of a red signal ahead, first double amber ( Slow Down ) then single amber ( Next signal may be RED ). Furthermore the driver of the HST was approaching retirement with long experience of the line and the HST yet the media almost immediately pinned the blame on him despite the fact it was obviously due to a computer malfunction if you examined the evidence in depth. The key factor being that the computer would automatically puts all signals in the area to red in the event of a malfunction after a conflicting movement was detected by the track circuiting !
Almost immediately the media and Unions started a campaign to Automatic Train Protection fitted on all UK trains at great expense to passengers and the HST driver suffered a nervous breakdown after Plod charged him with manslaughter so the truth never got a chance to come out in court as he was deemed unfit to stand trial !
Not that long after Ladbroke Grove occurred again with an eastbound HST approaching Paddington but this time a westbound a local train crossing the main line in conflict. There were reports of drivers complaining about signalling anomalies conflicting with the AWS earlier that day but no action was taken. From the news footage it was clear that the road was partially set for the westbound local train to cross the main lines yet the blame was pinned on its inexperienced dead driver. Much was made about the positioning of the crucial signal and how the morning sun would stop you seeing it even though I have never had any problems reading temporary traffic lights on the road with the strong sun directly behind. Once again the media cracked up with demands for network wide ATP despite the fact that EU mainland trains so fitted were involved in several serious accidents around and after that time. The old BR guys came up with Train Protection & Warning system as a cheap and just as effective alternative and since that was adopted the accidents are almost eliminated. TPWS can also be used on Steam hauled excursions using a battery pack but are suspended at the moment due to a signal passed at danger, and perhaps the cause was a TPWS malfunction caused by a green tech battery short like the Alps air crash ?
2. Getting back to my original sabotage theory and it would appear that there are parallels between Philadelphia and UK Potters Bar where a faulty set of points ( switches ) derailed the back half on a fast through train not stopping at the said station. The cause was found to be lose nuts on the stretcher bar between the facing point blades, despite the fact that all facing points on UK passenger lines incorporate locks to prevent them being moved by mistake under a train. When enthusiast specials use freight lines if they have to use facing points they are always ” clipped ans scotched ” and padlocked before the train is allowed to traverse them. Point locks were introduced in Victorian times after an LNWR derailment at Wigan as amply described in the chapter on H. A. Ivatt in Master Builders of Steam.
As usual I digress but the BBC were showing footage of a sharp curve to the right of the main New York line so the train must have passed over a facing junction and RT footage shows wreckage going straight on so the cause of the crash must have been a faulty switch. The concrete sleeper main line looks well maintained, but perhaps it would be dead easy to recreate a Potters Bar scenario if you could lubricate one of the track maintenance guys with the promise of riches for the rest of his life even if he was sacked. I expect that the US rail unions are in on the deal as well as their bosses fat cat pensions must rely on ever increasing asset prices on Wall Street plus they are probably smarting about the US government cutting $250 million from the Amtrak subsidy. Perhaps the same principle also applied to the RMT at Potters Bar which precipitated track maintenance being taken back in house by Network Rail thus allowing the National Strike they are currently using in pay talks ?
I can’t help speculating that the over UK night Shooting Incident in Dallas Texas is a Wall Street Sponsored False Flag to give the May Day Bank Holiday BBC & Sky rolling TV news the excuse they needed to exclude UK election coverage to an absolute minimum. In particular to stop Nigel Farage and other key UKIP politicians like their manifesto architect Suzanne Evans actually informing the UK public on the actual far wider than just Immigration UKIP programme for government over the next 5 years.
Unlike the Lib/Lab/Con UKIP’s manifesto is fully costed, independently audited ( and apart from withdrawing from the EU ) savings on expenditure include 18bn a year saved by repealing Ed Miliband’s 2008 Climate Change Act. That will also mean cheaper energy bills for households and therefore more money for families to spend in the wider economy to generate additional tax revenue from increased business profits. As far as Corporate Multinational Cartel Tax Avoidance is concerned UKIP propose a simple catch all UK Turnover Tax far better than the Tories complicated jiggery pokery announced in the recent Budget. In his Russel Brand interview Ed Miliband was attempting to portray that action on Corporate Tax Avoidance was impossible without International agreement which is simply Not True !
I expect that the Left of the UK political spectrum is running shy of the UKIP proposal to reduce Foreign Aid by Two Thirds but that still leaves 4bn to spend on the most productive ways for allieviating Third World Poverty. I expect that most of the cut will eliminate waste on Climate Change related projects ( other than flood defences ) plus other Welfare State for the Stock Market Parasites projects where corrupt politicians and officials siphon off most of the money straight into their Fat Cat Swiss Bank Accounts. Furthermore, increasing the Defence budget will allow the British armed services the funds for wider engagement in famine relief projects with support like supervising building good roads and training the locals to maintain any vehicles supplied !
As usual I digress but perhaps another subtle indicator that the Texas Incident is as False Flag is the probablity that it keeps any detail of the Tel Aviv Israel riots out of the US & UK news. Those rioting over their oppression due to ever increasing Corporate-Nazi Financial Apartheid include Black Ethiopian immigrant Jews plus full Israeli citizen non Palestinian Arabs and some low income Israeli Jews possibly of European origin ?
Of course nobody would ever suspect anything as High Profile anti Muslim Dutch politician Geert Wilders was attending the alleged target US Far Right conference, but perhaps that might kick off Hope Not Hate etc to allege that electing Nigel Farage and a large number of UKIP MP’s might precipitate terror attacks in the UK. Again nobody would suspect as it reinforces Nigel Farage’s comments in the EU parliament about if ISIS claim they are going to flood the EU with terrorists and mean it. Therefore a common EU immigration policy and accepting every last port of call Libya originating migrant we pluck out of the Med without question is a really bad idea. That is not to say that UKIP is against fulfilling UN quotas on genuine Asylum Seekers, in fact Nigel Farage Said that the UK should take more than its quota of Christians fleeing oppression ?
To conclude and thinking right outside the box as usual it may be the case that if the alleged dead Dallas terrorists were shot by Police Marksmen they may just have been playing dead bleeding profusely from a non fatal injury. Modern medicine is wonderful and perhaps they will both make a full recovery and be given a new identity plus lots of Wall Street Ponzi Scheme income to go and spend the rest of their life on a tropical island surrounded by lots of beautiful young women to pander to their every need. Meanwhile perhaps some totally innocent people will be set up for life in US Corporate Prison or even face totally inhumane US practice execution ?
