Ethanol cannot be transported through pipelines due to its corrosive nature.

That is called a Hopper car NOT A GONDOLA

Can’t pipeline Ethanol, to volatile when its moving and creates alot of moisture.

You would think it would be cheaper to use a pipeline to deliver this stuff.

Is that NS Gondola a buffer car in case the train derails you don’t have an ethanol car right behind you?Not that it would matter with all of that ethanol!

That’s a lot of ethanol, hate to see that train derail. And I got idea for that pole, hook a chain around it and hook to that train as its going by, will solve that leaning pole. lol

those ethanol tanks could use some good graffiti paintin` on em`. Primarily some taggings or bombing pieces. They`er not exactly too good for an actual piece, but they be good for maybe so quik right-ups.> more freight graffiti da better.>
