Is there anything more LIRR than repairing an engine that apparently burst into flames?

172 was pulling 518 westbound through Kings Park on Tuesday around 2:10pm. The 172 looks terrible, and didn't sound much better. I guess 518 crapped out somewhere east of Kings Park and was headed back to Morris Park.

Last night late (around 11:45) saw a DE or DM (too dark couldn't tell) leading 2 MP-15ac's moving slowly eastbound near the Deer Park station. Due to the dark and fog could not get any numbers. About 5 minutes later that was being followed up by NYA PR20B/MP-15ac combo running light.

An oil fire is what you get for letting oil collect on the top deck/cylinder heads from a leaking oil line to/from the turbo/roots blower,
and gets hot enough to burn,that's how you get burn marks on the hood.

The scorch marks on the unit in question are from when it took a joyride down the Bushwick a few years ago and subsequently made close friends with a few vehicles.

I think it was the 160 that got loose and rampaged down the Bushwick Branch.

Number 150 looked very clean today at Yaphank with all the other MP's.
