The tanks for Heinz have pure grain alcohol. Watched by the feds, who record movements, times and car seals.(AKA the revenoors)
What placard numbers do you see on the car then look that up on google.

Q326-11 @ 13:38 before departing Holland had copied an EC1 from the RN Dispatcher for a Heat Warning on all tracks on the Grand Rapids sub-division - probably was also issued for the Plymouth sub as well. In the Bangor chat yesterday, someone in the know had stated that meant trains have to reduce their speed by 10mph in all areas having a 40mph or higher speed limit.

^ That was me. So yes, a train that can normally run 50 can only go 40 during a heat warning, 40 can only go 30 etc.
