Web-based—General Service Tank Cars & Tank Cars of the Future

Course Duration: Self-paced

Price: $50

This program will focus on those tank cars that are used in flammable liquid transport today and in the near future. Tank car size, construction, fittings, and linings determine commodities suitable for shipment in a particular tank car. It will concentrate on the features of the DOT 111 Legacy Car, the upgraded CPC 1232 and the new DOT 117 Tank Car.

Due to the increased rail car traffic carrying flammable liquids the industry has worked to upgrade the construction of these containers to make them safer in the event of a derailment.
