Hazardous Substance

I'm no expert, but some of the freight rails that run through Philly (including massive oil trains) are in visibly shitty condition (including one bridge in particular). Regulators freak out a lot more about passenger accidents, it seems, but I do worry about the impending oil train bomb.

Several cars of a CSX train derailed Sunday morning in Northeast Washington. Three overturned and were leaking a hazardous substance, according to the D.C. Fire Department.
