    I wondered this too and then thought maybe it was a set up with more than one engine and this one was facing the other way like you often see???

    Was he blowing the whistle at the tornado as if telling it to get out of the way?

    That was ridiculous to watch it come off the tracks like that. I was expecting it to get really bad there at the end there though (trying not to ruin it for those who haven't watched it yet).

    pretty cool video, but like others said, there should of been a front camera too.

    Very cool, and yeah, I was wondering just how violent that was going to get. An odd note.....I played this in media player, and shut everything down, and the damn train sounds from the video are still coming through my speakers. Weird.

    2 things:
    1) Notice the tops of the trees how they go from calm to breezy to windy to freaking wild.
    2) At about 1:26 would be one of those times in your life where you yell, "OH ****!!" and then poop your pants.
