Another train wreck in Canada involving tankers loadd with crude, and this time LP gas as well. Overnight Friday/Saturday and radio indicated still burning today. Excerpt from news story:
 
A Canadian National spokesman, Louis-Antoine Paquin, said 13 cars four carrying petroleum crude oil and nine loaded with liquified petroleum gas came off the tracks around 1am local time in the hamlet of Gainford, about 50 miles from Edmonton. The entire community of roughly 100 people was evacuated.
 
Derailment, on moving train on CP. Not good publicity for moving petroleum products by rail (we see freights on UP though here with lots of chemical tankers, including LP gas - headed for Houston, so probably empties heading south to get feed stock for plants elsewhere).
