Remarks & Notes 

A trailer caught fire during the Saturday 24 to Sunday 25 night on the "Autoroute Ferroviaire" multimodal train (rail hiwhay). The train was stopped on the main line at 2 am at Glun, where firefighters extinguished the blaze. But the frame melted and the car can't roll. However it is not just a matter of one car: the entire train is made of articulated and permanently coupled sections that can't easily be isolated from the damaged one. The line was blocked both directions for 2 days (nothing else than an accident report and damage assessment would take place on the Sunday). Fortunately, the parallel left bank line has plenty of capacity available for handling the traffic. Both the road trailer and the car frame to which it is glued by the melted metal will be removed the next day by road, after being lifted by 2 powerful road cranes.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
