  1. Very nice.

  2. Still amazes me that ethanol needs a buffer car, but LPG doesn’t. In the 80′s, you needed 5 cars between the power or van and an LPG car…of course, no unit ones in those days. Phil, do recall the rules for that?

  3. @Dave Brook… nowadays if the entire train is made up of the same dangerous commodity and does not enter the US, a buffer car is not needed. Why? I would love to know… For example, if we were to run a crude oil train from Edmonton to Saint John and it stayed in Canada the whole way, it would not need a buffer. If this same train went via Chicago and Sarnia, it would. Crazy.

  4. Transport Canada oversight at its best…..
