PHILADELPHIA AMTRAK CRASH SCENE: IS ANYONE QUESTIONING THE CLOSE PROXIMITY OF TANK CARS?

The Benicia Independent | May 13, 2015 | Post by Roger Straw

With courage and strength to survivors and the grieving … it looks like it might’ve been much worse.  Check out the photos.  What was in those tank cars at the time of the accident?  What is typically stored in tank cars in that railyard so close to the tracks?

Maybe 15 feet from a tank car involvement?
