There was a train that derailed in MN the other day. It was carrying oil and spilled some. I think it was a NS train and I think it was unrefined tar sand oil. Don’t think the drive by media was allowed to report!

**********************************EXCERPT****************************************

The spill is one of the biggest in a rising number related to railroads, as energy companies use trains to move crude oil from booming North American fields not adequately served by pipelines. The number of incidents has risen sharply in the past few years, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of federal data.

That’s it! My point is if a pipe broke it would be covered by the media like.....Sandy Hook.
Thanks Ernest ;0)

I don't know about that. Does Berkshire Hathaway actually own a railroad or do they just lease rail cars?

Thanks C_H. I would think, with that $ investment, someone is expecting a return on their investment. I recall Ms. Rice and hubby have a nice sum riding on the pipeline being built. I wonder who will be allowed to profit!

I couldn't even make an educated guess on that question, gt. There are a lot of fingers in various pies, and ☭bummer's handlers are pulling the strings, not him.
