Fire from a train explosion is seen in Lac Megantic, July 6, 2013. At least five people died and 40 were missing on Sunday after the runaway train carrying crude oil exploded and destroyed the center of a small Canadian town in a disaster that raises fresh questions about shipping oil by rail. (Reuters)

The massive Quebec rail explosion comes as trains dedicated to hauling oil have started rolling through the same New Hampshire towns traversed by Amtrak's Downeaster.
