— Two environmental groups are asking New York state to reveal details about rail shipments of crude oil through the Hudson Valley.

The Times-Herald Record of Middletown reports that Earthjustice and Hudson Riverkeeper want to know more about the controversial trains. The paper says Earthjustice attorney Chris Amato filed a Freedom of Information Law request last week seeking records CSX Corp. submitted to the state about its crude-oil shipments.

CSX transports crude oil across the state to the Port of Albany and along the Hudson River. It wants the state to sign a nondisclosure agreement to keep shipping contents and schedules private.

The state says no decision has been made about that request.

Oil trains have been under increasing scrutiny since a series of derailments.
