By Kristen Hays and Cezary Podkul HOUSTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - BNSF Railway Co plans to buy its own fleet of up to 5,000 new crude oil tank cars with safety features that exceed the latest industry standards, the unit of investor Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc said on Thursday. The unusual step is intended to further the industry's push for safer movement of crude by rail in light of several accidents in recent months, including one involving a BNSF train in North Dakota last December. The company, a major mover of crude by rail throughout the United States, plans to seek bids from railcar makers for up to 5,000 new tank cars with thicker walls and ends, increased protection of safety and pressure valves, and other safety features exceeding industry standards adopted two years ago. BNSF's plan is atypical for a railroad, which generally owns only the tracks and locomotives that pull trains.
