On the UP:

"A key train is a train that consists of one or more of the following:

1) One or more loads of spent nuclear fuel or high level radioactive waste;

2) One or more loaded tank car containing TIH (toxic inhilation hazard) and/or anhydrous ammonia;

3) A combination of 20 or more loaded haz-mat cars including loaded intermodal tanks of TIH, flammable gas, anhydrous ammonia, Class 1.1 or 1.2 explosives, any PG I (packing group 1) haz-mat or environmentally sensitive chemicals.

Boxcars, tailers and containers do not count towards the determination of a key train."
