http://www.marionstar.com/article/20121007/NEWS01/210070301?...Tankcars often rupture in derailments and result in large fires. The industry is upgrading standards for new cars requiring thicker steel walls and shields to reduce risk of puncture by couplers in a derailment.But older cars will not be retrofitted. Service life of a car probably is 30+ years. Hence, standard will require 15 yrs before half of tankcars meet the new standard.
