  • RAIL DANGERS – The Journal Gazette – Fort Wayne, IN, US – July 25, 2006

(…) “For us the only designation we care about is whether or not it’s hazardous or not,” [Norfolk Southern Railroad Spokesman Rudy] Husband said. “If it’s not hazardous, we don’t care what’s in it.” He says that all cars that contain hazardous materials have placards.

But it’s difficult for the public to trust the railroad that there was nothing hazardous on the derailed cars when railroad officials don’t even know or are not willing to say what the train was carrying. It’s not unreasonable for the public to expect the railroad to know what cargo it’s carrying and to inform the public exactly what was on the train when an accident happens. (…)
