KCS 4688 - Diesel Prime Mover Runaway
Title:  KCS 4688 - Diesel Prime Mover Runaway
Description:  KCS 4688 had enough this morning and its prime mover apparently decided to "run away". You could see the smoke from 10 miles away. KCPD and KCFD responded to KCS Knoche Yard this morning and watched the 4688 burn herself out. It made one awful noise when it seized up and flamed out.

After the engine made the wost possible mechanical noise that I can imagine and seized up, the aftermath continues to flame out. This is from the end of Waldron Avenue.
