Danger of Co-location of Freight and Light rail

The following letter was submitted to the Met Council on July 20, 2015:

Danger of Co-location of Freight and Light rail

I am opposed to the SWLRT co-location of freight trains and light-rail.  I want to make the point that the freight cars carrying flammable liquids can leak or exude flammable fumes and should not be located adjacent to light-rail and light-rail’s electrical wires because of the danger of an explosion.  This is particularly dangerous in the Kenilworth residential area. Co-location should be banned.
