A Hint of War? Federal Railroad Administration Issues Emergency Order for Trains with Hazardous Materials

This sounds like the type of order only given during wartime or imminent terrorist threat. Direct from the DOT/Federal Railroad Administration website:

 

FRA Emergency Order No 28 Notice No 1

 

If anyone thinks those warnings to embassies overseas were by accident, you’re an idiot. This smells like an upcoming conflict in the offing either in Iran or Syria in my honest opinion.

    We have been waiting for this to come out seen the Canadian derailment. Believe it or not CSX all ready does most of the stuff. Been doing 90% of it for years. Reporting the number of brakes tried to the dispatcher is the only new thing I see. Sounds like just more paper work for me. The Hazmat stuff has a bunch of strict reg’s in place all ready. Way more then the EO talks about. I am very sad this came out on Friday. All the poor transportation mangers will only get to the golf crouse 5 or 6 times this week

    • The Friday issuance is why I question the timing. Most of the time, even the incompetent bureaucrats IF this were a standard procedure would issue these on a Monday morning so the offices could field questions from the transportation companies. With the Embassy closures, troops in position in Turkey and Jordan, plus elevated levels of military activity domestically, the timing is just too coincidental for my liking. This sounds more like they are preparing our infrastructure for a multi-level conflict.
