Vancouver Action Network has discovered that Vancouver City Hall has a publicly accessible webcam pointed at the railroad tracks which we can now use to monitor for oil trains. We are calling on volunteers around the world to help us monitor 100% oil trains coming through our town. It is easy to identify the 100% oil trains because they are 1 mile long and only contain black cylindrical rail cars with the red diamond shaped placard 1267. Please monitor this Vancouver City Hall webcam and use Twitter to send a Tweet containing the time(am/pm listed on the webcam), direction of train travel (left to right across the screen is westbound), city, and the hashtag #waoiltrainwatch
Please search in your cities for webcams which show railroad tracks and start a Train Watch using them and Twitter. If you have any questions please contact us.
