This picture was taken at about 3:30 PM March 15, 2014. Â The train was stationary on a siding and had been there since at least 2:30. I counted about 25 tanker cars. Â They look like the infamous, unsafe, Dot 111 variety.
There is no known rail offloading facility at the Phillips 66 refinery, so these cars are probably not associated with that facility. Â Also, there is no way to tell if there is product in these tanker cars.
It would be good to know that this is not the highly volatile Bakken crude or filthy Tar Sands crude, but there is no way to find out. Â There is currently no legislation that requires disclosure. Â We should NOT want those materials parked under our bridges!
