      • Smoked = Yes I do - I can reply to you with my computer! FYI - I looked at some CNI web pages and the track sites that I saw had CNI track very close to this area - near Quebec City. Hope that only the local line is responsible for the problem and that CNI is not a "partner in crime" for the legal problems to come. Because I wonder: How did the local line get these tank cars? The local line did not run out to the Bakken. Did CNI - which has track nearby - interchange the cars to this local line after CNI brought them over from the Bakken? Lawyers will look at anyone and everyone that touched those cars from the point of loading at the Bakken to the derailment problem in this town to pin liability for damages to as many railroads that handled those tanker cars as they can. Indemnity and hold harmless agreements aside - things not good when some jury views the toasted remains of those killed and the lawyer points out that the railroad is to blame. The stock today is acting like hauling oil via rail is going to come under greater scrutiny. CP dumped one tank car with crude oil in Minnesota a couple months back and not too much was made about it in the news. Just hoping CNI had nothing to do with this one - long and enjoying collecting the dividend - hope you are too. Woody
