Crude Oil Trains Again In The Pennsylvania Press

Several articles this week again put the spotlight on crude oil trains delivering product to Pennsylvania, including a “blast zone” map published by the environmental group PennFuture.

The “blast zone” map looked at potential rail lines in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and the areas that could be affected by an accident and the explosions that followed from the crude oil train derailment in Quebec last year.  Click Here for the article and maps.

WITF, public radio in Harrisburg, did a feature story on “What you should know about crude oil on trains coming through PA” asking and answering a dozen questions about where the crude comes from, how it’s shipped and where it’s going.  Click Here to read the article.
