Dangerous fire and explosions. There's already been two incidents in Oregon. Two lucky breaks, in Mosier and Madras. But these trains run right through downtown Bend. And if you live within a mile of the railroad tracks, you are at serious risk. The entire downtown area could be obliterated. Much like Lac Megantic, in Canada, where an explosion killed 47 people and racked up 2 billion in damages. Now, the formerly picturesque town lies in gravel rubble, without sufficient funds to rebuild. With little recourse, these damages fall on taxpayers.

The industry says their trains are safer and the risks minimal. But are they? And why are we at such serious risk in Central Oregon? What can we do about it?
