Carver,

Alas, I have no statistics to back that up.

I don't have actual statistics for transport of petroleum, either, but I do know that accidents in general occur over ten times more frequently on CSX than on Norfolk Southern, which are pretty comparable in all respects (rail miles, volume and types of business, region of service, etc.). The major difference between these two railroads is the culture -- one of neglect on CSX and of obsession over safety on Norfolk Southern.

Norm.
