kinda weird in the original picture how the little service roads on the sides of the tracks are perfectly straight yet the damn tracks have like 5' of movement on them

the ground does not move like that, there are no 3 foot sections of earth making a 4 foot sideways shift

the earth quake may have cause the track to be longer then it normally is, which cause it to crease somewhere

but I highly doubt such a small piece of earth is going to move sideways

and even if it did, if you look in the first photo, it is nothing like that. the picture you posted could have occured if a single piece of land moved 1 direction, much more likely then two pieces next to each other moving opposite directions like the first pic.

oh and also, look how the stones did not move, just the tracked themselves, theres proof that the earth did not move the tracks sideways.

thats exactly what I was thinking, it make sense now, the track had gotten too long at some point because of earth moving somewhere close by, and the track had to get longer somewhere, so it bent. You can see in knight sports pic how the wood actually moved left first, then back to center after it buckled

It's already been noted that the original pic appears to be a PS job but I was illustrating that tracks can and do move laterally. This usually happens on strike slip faults.

If anything I think they just duplicated a section of the actual photo in the original.

This isn't debateable, it's a scientiffically observed phenomenon. Look at the USGS site or any scientific publication relating to geology.

Those look more like, warped rails due to thermal expansion. I don't think an earthquake could cause the tracks to zig zag like that, since tectonic plates usually do not interweave like that.
Telephone poles.

Definitely possible that it is just caused by compression, but you also need not think of the track's bent position as only being possible due to the motion of the ground directly beneath it.

Remember, energy has to go somewhere or turn into something. Now that railroad track isn't exactly designed to wave around like a piece of yarn. When a huge length of track like that got hit by a big wave like motion there was probably a lot of tension developed as the track attempted to resist the motion. The wave energy of a very long piece of track, that to our eye would still look relatively straight, could potentially "release" that energy in a very specific location....and it would have little to nothing to do with the ground under that specific piece of track moving in some sort of incredible fashion.

Really bad example, but maybe it will help: Take a really long stick, hold it at one end only, and shake it with VERY short motions back and forth. The shaking is coming from your hand, and yet near your hand the stick is still nearly straight, yet at the other end of the stick the tip is flapping around wildly...and if weak enough might even snap.

Cliffs: Really advanced wave/energy physics that I don't fully understand, but think could be the cause of such events without needing any sort of crazy ground movement.

The damage is certainly real but it looks like it was chopped onto a painting. All the grass and bush look so fake compared to the gravel and the train tracks.

Cool pic though.
