    I heard from some oil fields in North Dakota. From there up to Canada and over through Niagra falls, then down through NY then PA on the Sunbury sub. Lastly they would be going to ports down in Delaware. I dont know how true this is. I only have 1 source on this and it was an overheard conversation at Taylor yard.

    The train you saw may be related to this story posted on Fox News today.

    I didnt see an oil train through here yet. I hear rumors that they were supposed to start running them through here. I would like to know if this is true or not.
