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

  • 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.

    I'm still not happy.


    I wanted the price of CNI to take a hit from this. No such luck.


    Ah well...

    I think the small hit CN took will be as big as it gets in the near future.

    I don't quite understand. Won't they be sued, just like any other company, for some type of oversight or mistake made during this accident?
