The consist looks like it could be with all of those bi-levels.  The special operates in the Pacific Northwest this year.

I think that might be the Lake Superior dining car?

Being the Lake Superior, they had plenty of water to control it...

Hopefully the one person injured will be OK.

The engineer spotted the car in an accessible location, and cut away the rest of the train.  The Flag fire department made a heads up decision about the presence of diesel fuel, batteries, perhaps propane, etc on board.  That's good training and situational awareness.

Quite an interesting scene, and fortunately a somewhat accessible location. FFD responds to many varied types of calls in the N AZ region, and their Special Ops and Hazmat teams have some extraordinarily well-trained people on them.
