Quebec crash may not dent demand for crude tank cars

The deadly train derailment and explosion that claimed at least 20 lives this weekend in a small Canadian town has raised questions about the safety of shipping crude oil by rail. But while regulators look into concerns about the old, puncture-prone tank cars involved in the disaster in Lac-M├ęgantic, North American manufacturers are continuing to tackle record orders for crude tank cars. Experts say the oil industry's interest in such specialized cars, which come in a variety of designs but typically hold 700 barrels of oil apiece, is unlikely to wane in the wake of the recent tragedy.
