NY starts inspecting rail yards handling Bakken crude

By: | at 03:30 PM | Intermodal  

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Friday officials have launched inspections at state rail yards to protect people from potential accidents involving shipments of volatile crude oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota.

Federal and state officials inspected two rail yards on Thursday, one in Albany owned by Canadian Pacific Railroad, and the other in Buffalo owned by CSX, Cuomo’s office said.

Rail cars laden with Bakken crude have been involved in a slew of recent fiery derailments.
