TACOMA, Wash. -

The uptick in oil trains traveling on the Tacoma Rail includes the recent arrival of a Union Pacific oil train that was missing six cars due to a derailment in Mosier, Oregon.
    
The News Tribune reports the 132 oil trains to take the route in 2015 is higher than in the two years prior.
    
The first part of 2016 shows a 31-percent uptick from the same period in 2015.
    
Rail superintendent Dale King and U.S. Oil official Marcia E. Nielsen say safety is a priority as Tacoma's role grows in the oil train industry.
    
Oregon transportation officials asked the Federal Rail Administration for an oil train moratorium.
    
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said in a letter that federal law updated in 2015 does not do enough to address safety.
