Shinkansen earthquake derailment - no injuries
Author: mile250

From Railway Gazette International online. This is the result of some careful engineering. 200 mph to 0 with no injuries. Their power system detects the high-frequency primary seismic waves, which arrive a few seconds before the lower frequency secondary waves that cause the swaying of ground and structures.
