 CONRAIL HONORS 25 HAZARDOUS MATERIAL SHIPPERS
 WITH CHAIRMAN'S TRANSPORTATION QUALITY AWARDS
 PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Consolidated Rail Corporation (NYSE: CRR) (Conrail) announced today that 25 chemical and petroleum shippers will receive its 1991 Chairman's Transportation Quality Award.
 The award, now in its fourth year, recognizes companies shipping at least 1,000 carloads of hazardous materials via Conrail in a single year without a shipper-caused incident.
 "Shippers play a vital role in the safe transportation of hazardous materials, and this award program recognizes the commitment to safety exhibited by these companies and their employees. Their careful attention to equipment maintenance, loading and preparation of shipments for movement contributes to our excellent safety record," said James A. Hagen, Conrail's chairman, president and chief executive officer.
 "Since Conrail started this award program in 1988, an increasing number of chemical and petroleum companies have earned the award each year, from seven for 1988 to the 25 honored for 1991," said Hagen. "This demonstrates the importance our customers place on safety, and is a reflection of the entire industry's efforts through the 'Responsible Care' program sponsored by the Chemical Manufacturers Association."
 Two of the companies honored for 1991 earned the award in each of the four years since the program was started: The BF Goodrich Company, Akron, Ohio, and Hoechst Celanese Chemical Group, Dallas.
 Two other firms are three-time winners: Liquid Carbonic Corporation, Chicago, and PPG Industries, Inc., Pittsburgh.
 Eight of the 1991 winners are making their second appearance on the list: BP Oil & Chemical, Cleveland; Canadian Electrolytic Zinc, Valleyfield, Quebec; Dow Chemical USA, Midland, Mich.; Exxon Chemical Americas, Houston; ICI Canada, Toronto; Marsulex, Toronto; Mobil Oil, Fairfax, Va.; and Star Enterprises, Houston.
