Yesterday's
US officials were probing safety of Bakken oil route months before Lac-Mégantic
"... investigators in Canada and the U.S. have said publicly they are concerned that the Bakken oil was more volatile than believed. ..."

Canadian rail safety plans are kept secret from public


Documents that contain a rail company's safety plan are "locked up in a vault," say some Canadian industry experts and safety advocates.

Metro Vancouver BNSF realignment?

There's been discussion at the municipal and provincial levels on a replacement rail alignment of the BNSF mainline between the US border and Surrey, BC. It'll better connect the BNSF with the Roberts Bank Superport, where BNSF sends 3-4 loaded coal trains (about 50,000 metric tonnes) daily from the Powder River Basin in the US, as well as other freight and passenger.

Amqui railway station by Quevillon, on Flickr

The station is representative of the boom at the turn of the century, and the associated expansion of the railways in general, the Intercolonial Railway of Canada (IRC) in particular. Amqui depended on the railway to transport their agricultural products and finished parts made of wood. Subsequently, Amqui became an important stop on the train's route from Montréal to Halifax, and from Montréal to Gaspé.
