Flaming ghost train haunts Schwarzwaldbahn in Germany

Recommended Posts

Maintenance train catches fire, driver bails, train keeps driving at 40-60 kph with nobody on board for about 28 km, passing multiple stations and setting fire to some grass on the side. 
 

it was rerouted on a dead end track where it finally derailed.

 

the firefighters “haven’t seen this one yet”.

 

the police is investigating.

No deadman’s switch or all down hill? Bailing without some thought to stopping train or brakes dead? Seems odd...
