Trains carry millions of gallons of oil across ME

FILE - This March 7, 2013 file photo provided by WABI-TV5 in Bangor, Maine, shows derailed tank cars in Mattawamkeag, Maine. Fifteen cars of a 96-car train carrying crude oil went off the tracks at about 5 a.m., approximately 60 miles north of Bangor. Thousands of railroad tank cars filled with crude oil from the nation’s heartland are crossing Maine destined for an oil refinery in New Brunswick. The growing volume is raising concern among environmentalists and government officials about the threat of an accident and spill, though railroads say moving oil by train is perfectly safe.
