High Hazardous Flammable train placards to watch for
Following the latest derailment in Mosier OR, I became even more curious to know exactly what hazardous material is in a passing oil train or truck. Taken from my LINKS page, here’s a brief summary of the most common placards:
Placard 1203 – Basically gasoline, a blended fuel with up to 10% ethanol.
Placard 3475 – blended fuel with 11% to 94% ethanol.
Placard 1987 – Denatured fuel ethanol, 95% to 99% ethanol .
Placard 1170 – Neat ethanol, 100%.
