The Trump administration vastly understated the potential benefits of installing more advanced brakes on trains that haul explosive fuels when it cancelled a requirement for railroads to begin using the equipment. A government analysis used by the administration to justify the cancellation omitted up to $117 million in potential reduced damages from using electronic brakes.
