It was a locomotive electrical fire.  It tied up things for a few hours.

It was the ZLCLT. The dynamic brake grids caught on fire on one of the trailing units. The train is still stuck on Metrolink somewhere.

3rd motor was dead with bad batteries, held waiting for a jump start. Eventually left Lang at 2115hrs, close to 6 or 7 hours late.
