Oil train tank cars need upgrades

Tank cars aren’t safe enough to carry oil, and explosive train wrecks will result.  And by the time we build them, will the oil boom become a bust, and the cars won’t be needed?  Or will new pipelines reduce the need for this mode?  Where should our transportation infrastructure capital be spent?  Should oil be going in trains anyway?
