    While cars of phosphoric acid (UN 1805) frequently pass through Kirkwood on the former Frisco line, white phosphorus (UN 2447) or phosphorus under water (UN1381) are extremely rare on the Cuba Sub, which is a good idea considering all the flammable petrochemicals in the consists. I think I have seen phosphorus cars on the ex-MoPac UP line through Kirkwood and Webster Groves. White phosphorus cars I have seen not only have the UN 2447 placard but also have "Elemental Phosphorus" clearly printed on the car side.
