25 million Americans live within one mile of a bomb train route. Are you one of them?

As you read this, train cars are crisscrossing the nation carrying a highly volatile form of crude oil. Known as “bomb trains,” these cars have a history of devastating explosions – threatening lives and waterways – when involved in any kind of an accident.

Our report, Deadly Crossing: Neglected Bridges & Exploding Oil Trains, details the danger. The report includes the findings of a grassroots network of advocates who conducted inspections across the United States and identified significant areas of concern with 114 railway bridges along known and potential routes of explosive oil trains.

What they found should alarm us all.

The condition of our nation’s rail infrastructure is dismal. And, according to a study by our report partners, ForestEthics, it threatens the lives of more than 25 million Americans who live within one mile of an oil train route, known as the bomb train blast zone. You may be one of them.

Help us take the findings of this new report to the federal government and demand that bomb trains stop endangering lives and waterways.
