Runaway Train

Question: How was Sara so sure that there was no engineer on the train, considering that she was not able to get to the front carriage to find out?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Most likely from the speed at which the train was going, a train is like driving any large vehicle. You have to maintain a certain pace, to stop at an instant, for the unexpected.

Question: Why would the loco derail if the siding switch was set to the siding where the freight train went?

Chosen answer: It wouldn't derail, it would break the bolt on points - the part of switch that moves, causing the points.
