Cars from derailed oil train still on fire four days after accident

|By:, SA News Editor

The Canadian National Railway (CNI) train whose cargo included gas and crude oil is burning for a fourth day in New Brunswick as crews work to remove he last derailed freight cars adjacent to the fire (earlier)

It's not clear whether the crude tanker still burning is the older DOT-111 model or a newer model that complies with stricter voluntary standards for tankers

Separately, newly released documents show CNI argued against an emergency provision implemented after the Lac-Megantic disaster requiring that trains loaded with dangerous goods such as crude oil never be left unattended.
