The tank cars are to be built to exceed the new stronger standards the rail industry voluntarily adopted in October 2011 for the CPC-1232 jacketed tank car

Also interesting it doesn't mention anything about the newer standards that are being talked about as a result of the more recent oil train accidents.  Are the specs mentioned in the article close to these? https://www.aar.org/newsandevents/Press-Releases/Pages/PHMSA-ANPRM-PRESSRELEASE.aspx#.UwmuEEJdX6Q
