I have been puzzling about how long it has been – more than 650 days – since the Quebec oil train explosion accident, with little substantive progress in making the transport of these trains safer.
Is it too explosive to handle? Are the trains too dangerous at any speed? Is it not worth the market effort, as some suggest? I’m still wondering about both the economics and the safety issues, and worrying about the safety of emergency first responders like my uncle and grandfather.
What’s missing in the railroad industry today?
