The Biggest Train Hype Train Ride in the World
Train Hypes are all the rage these days, especially in the wake of the New York City subway bombings.
In addition to the train wrecks, there are also train-related incidents that are going viral.
The train wreck that killed 29 people on March 17, 2016, was the most famous, but there are dozens more.
One of those incidents involved a train carrying more than 1,000 passengers, including children, that was hit by a train, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority announced Tuesday.
A video posted by NJTA shows a passenger being carried out of the train in a wheelchair and down a staircase while others wait in the car to get onto the train.
In another video posted to Twitter on April 14, 2017, a train passenger is seen getting on the train at the New Haven train station and jumping out the window after a crash.
“We are very concerned about this tragic accident and we are doing everything we can to find out exactly what happened,” the New England Regional Transportation Authority (NERTA) tweeted at the time.
“Our hearts go out to all those who were on the New Year’s Eve train, and we want to make sure they know we will do everything in our power to assist in the recovery and rehabilitation of those who have been injured.”
One of the largest train derailments occurred in the New Delhi Metro, when a train derailed on Jan. 12, 2017.
A train carrying 7,500 people derailed on the tracks at the Kharagpur Metro station, injuring 11 people.
Two days later, a fire broke out in the station and a passenger died.
“The incident was the worst train derailment in India since 1994 when a large fire broke and killed 1,200 people,” a spokesperson for NERTA told the Times of India newspaper.
“More than 6,000 people have been affected, including nearly 3,000 who were taken to hospitals for treatment,” the spokesperson added.
A train was also hit by another train on April 15, 2017 near the town of Tumkur in eastern Uttar Pradesh state. “
There is no estimate on how many people may have been killed, but the safety of the passengers is of utmost importance.”

In a separate incident, a passenger was killed and another injured when a car carrying 738 passengers derailed in the eastern state of Uttarakhand.
A group of people were on board the train that was travelling from Jalandhar to Tirupati.
A passenger, who survived the accident, said the train derailed when it hit the embankment.
“It was very difficult for the people in the train, they were trapped,” said the passenger, identified as Sharmila Kumar.
The man, identified by the Times as Kailash Kher, was arrested and later died at a hospital in TumKur. “
I was sitting with them and I heard the train start and I started crying,” she added.

A number of train incidents have also been recorded in India, including a train derailage in Bihar, which resulted in the death of 15 people, and a train wreck in Rajasthan, which left five people dead.
In 2017, two more people died and two others were injured when trains carrying 4,500 passengers derailed near the city of Goa.
“This incident is the worst case of train derailure since 1993,” railway minister M.C. Nadda told reporters after the incident.
“An estimated 4,000 persons were on train at that time.
More than 10,000 were injured,” Naddas spokesperson said in a statement.
Train crashes are also becoming a major concern for train operators and regulators, as there are numerous safety breaches that are not reported to authorities.
A series of train accidents, which are still under investigation, have led to more fatalities, including that of a passenger who died after the train he was riding in derailed near Rajasthani railway station in the western state of Rajasota.
A similar accident occurred on Feb. 26, 2017 when a passenger train carrying 1,300 people derailed near Udaipur, India.
“No safety breaches were reported and there were no passengers on the track when the accident occurred,” the railway ministry said in the statement.
“Investigation has revealed that there were at least 12 people on the platform when the incident occurred,” it added.
Train accidents have been a regular occurrence for decades.
In 2015, a fatal train accident in Bihar killed over 50 people, including at least 18 people on board.
And a fatal derailment at the Indian Railways train depot in Lucknow in 2017 killed 15 people.
Train derailments and deaths can also be attributed to poor signalling, bad brakes, and inadequate training.
According to the National Safety Council of India, there were 26
