PENNSYLVANIA: 18-Inch Pipe Bomb Reportedly Found On Train Tracks

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

The number of disasters occurring on train tracks across the United States has citizens wondering what is going on. The recent derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, that spilled toxic chemicals necessitated the five cars of vinyl chloride to be breached and burnt off to avoid a massive explosion. The burning sent toxic phosgene gas and hydrogen chloride into the atmosphere. Although the EPA says that the toxic levels in soil and nearby waterways are not alarming, and the levels in the air are deemed safe for humans, there are reports of sick animals and other concerns in the area. The long-term repercussions that will come from the train crash in northeastern Ohio are still unknown.

The Ohio train disaster has been followed by another Norfolk Southern train in Michigan, near Detroit. That train also carried chemicals, but the car containing the chemicals stayed on the tracks while 30 cars derailed. The investigation so far has shown no toxic leaks occurred. More accidents have occurred in Texas and South Carolina, but another disturbing incident concerning train tracks in Pennsylvania has just happened.

Philadelphia police reportedly found an 18-inch pipe bomb on train tracks in Frankford, Pennsylvania. The device was disconnected and reported to have burn marks. Officers reportedly said the bomb disposal unit removed the device for further investigation. “’18 inch pipe bomb’ discovered behind St. Dominic’s Catholic Church on Frankford Ave near Conrail railroad tracks in Philadelphia’s Holmesburg section,” said FOX 29 Philadelphia reporter Steve Keeley. “PPD bomb squad just safely took it away. Made with PVC pipe.”

FOX 29 reported:

Philadelphia police are investigating after a pipe bomb was reportedly discovered behind a church in Holmesburg. Philadelphia police sources tell FOX 29 an 18-inch pipe bomb was found Sunday, just after 1:30 p.m., behind St. Dominic’s Catholic Church, on the 8500 block of Frankford Avenue, in Philadelphia’s Holmesburg section.

Officials say a passerby found the pipe bomb, and noted it was a PVC pipe with capped ends and black powder on it. Police shut down Frankford Ave., between Benson and Blakiston while the Philadelphia Police Bomb Squad was called to the scene.

The stream of train disasters continuing, the discovery of the bomb has been followed up only a few days later with two more train derailments across the country.

A train derailed northeast of Houston, Texas on Monday morning after apparently crashing into an 18-wheeler. This happened around 7:30 a.m. along the tracks at Midline Road. The Texas Department of Transportation said the Eastex Freeway is back open heading north in the area after being closed for a few hours. KHOU 11 reported on the Houston train derailment:

Emergency crews responded to a train derailment along the Eastex Freeway in the Splendora area Monday morning, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. The East Montgomery County Fire Department reports a man driving an 18-wheeler involved in the crash with the train died. At least one person was killed. That train was said to be carrying hazardous materials.

Fox News reported that over a dozen train cars were derailed in the crash. When the first responders arrived at the scene, the driver of the truck was already dead. No one else was injured. The East Montgomery Fire Department said that there is no active threat to the community from the wreck, but that it would take up to 15 hours to cleanup and clear roads. The derailed Texas train is owned by Union Pacific.

Trending Politics reported that the train did carry toxic chemicals, “On Monday afternoon, a train derailed in Houston, Texas. The development comes after a separate train derailed in East Palestine, Ohio which led to the leak of toxic chemicals. ‘Another train derails in Houston, Texas area. Officials claim hazardous materials were on board.'”

And, another train has also derailed in Enoree, South Carolina, Spartanburg county, last week on February 13 at 6:15 am. In the incident, three train cars were derailed. Details are still coming in on that incident, as it is being investigated. FOX Carolina reported that train cars came off the tracks, but officials have since cleared the scene near Hwy. 221. CSX Transportation was also at the scene.

Disasters are piling up in the United States, and amid balloon sightings, social media is alive with speculation as to the cause of so many incidents concerning trains and toxic chemicals. This all follows the horrible train crash in northeast Ohio, where there are dozens of claims of animals dying within 100 miles of the accident:

We Love Trump askes, “What is happening right now??”

Some of these incidents appear to be accidental, although the number of incidents in giving birth to theories that they are connected. But the placement of a pipe bomb can in no way be called accidental, and the fact that it was placed on train tracks gives further ammunition to those who are connecting the train disasters.
