State and federal inspectors found four critical defects and 42 non-critical ones in the latest round of oil train and track inspections across New York.
Governor Andrew Cuomo says the inspections of tank cars and tracks are critical to maintaining public safety.
Inspection teams examined 104 crude oil tank cars, 184 miles of track and 89 switches.
The inspections focused on track, track hardware and tank car mechanical safety equipment.
