    I saw this video online this afternoon. There's a wildfire burning south of Albuquerque near one of the commuter rail lines, and they have pretty cool footage:

    It may take a few minutes to load.

    Or the engine just quit. <shuddering>

    Hopefully, there would be enough momentum for the crew to get clear of the fire.
