    Here's a link to a Train Board thread with a series of pictures of a coal train parked on a burning trestle. How do you suppose one would model that?

    What I want to know is why did they leave them on the bridge instead of pulling them off:confused: :confused: :confused:

    Only once. Better be an outdoor layout, too. It doesn't what scale the rolling stock is in, just make sure your fire extinguisher is 1:1.

    I note "The Colonel" is Sydney based. Dunno who he is though. One trainboard is enough for me to keep up with. This one will do me fine!:D

    Common sense

    Well common sense would be to pull the cars off the bridge, but as the original post started, they were following regulations stopping the train in the first place. I guess pulling train cars off of a burning bridge isn't covered in the regulation manual.

    Plus if they pulled the cars off the bridge it wouldn't have been such a great picture!!!!!!!!:eek:

    I think they mentioned something about molten metal from one of the railcar trucks. When they stopped, could the molten truck have fused/welded itself to the rail, making it impossible to pull the cars off....

    Just a thought...does that idea make any sense...
