I remember that accident. The two other crew guys pulled the engineer out the front window of the loco as it was burning !

Low frequency / high risk event.  One of the lines I run suffered a large one about fifteen years ago, thankfully a farmer saw it and called it in before a train found it.  Busy line, two mains and a siding - could have ended in disaster.  Glad these guys survived.
