Usually the red stripe is a band around the middle of the car. .
Thanks, so just making sure I follow you correctly, the stripe would go around the tanker like a wedding band on a finger, or longways "around" (lengthwise)?
Interesting what they might be sneaking through on this ghost of a former mainline...

A common nickname I've heard for them is a "Candy Striper". The contents are Hydrogen Cyanide. My emergency response guidebook classifies it as an extreme hazard with an isolation area of over 2 miles downwind of the spill. Pretty nasty stuff.
