Dalrymple emphasized the need for safety, saying tanker cars need to be stronger. The two also discussed operating rules including what can be done to make railways safer.

Governor Jack Dalrymple: “I did bring up train speeds through towns and cities. We talked about the possibility of preventing oil tank trains from passing other trains in cities.”
