Train Oil Car Debate Takes a Cautious Turn in Aberdeen, WA After the Train Derailment.

There have been 2 train derailments within 2 weeks of each other in Aberdeen. Luckily, both times involved the grain cars. But if both times involved the oil cars instead? Much of the city would have faced large cleanup bills a part from the repair duty that was only involved with grain cars.
