Train Derailments on the Increase?
If you buy the theory that crane collapses are due to a shift in the ground that puts a sideways force on the crane that it isn't designed for and causes it to collapse then you might wonder if trains are also victim to this ground movement. They are heavy and balanced on those skinny rails.

A quick google of news.google.com for train derailment finds a bunch. Many very recent. I will list a few. The time shown is when the article was posted on the Web not when the train derailed. If you want a link to the articles do your own google search.

Trains derail all. the. time. I grew up in a railway town, with a train driver father and friends on the job. Every driver derails once or twice (or multiple times) over their career.

I second that! They are more common than you would think. Freight trains at least. Passenger ones, not so much. Might be why they are not more publicized.
