Unlike pipelines, that means no public hearings and no environmental protests.
Railways have been carrying oil for a century and were the only way to move crude before major pipelines were developed beginning in the 1940s.
But the rail option isn't cheap and wasn't viable until two things changed.

Yep, and a derailed train can spill a lot of crude, too. Sometimes in someone's back yard.
The greenies should have thought about that before blocking Keystone.
