What were they thinking? They (NS) have a bunch of substandard cars, and the shippers need to assume all risks? Wha ha ha ha ha ha.



Hmm... it does me good

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

No Kiz .. most shippers using tank cars lease them from someone other than the railroads ..

UTLX, TILX, etc
