Were they instructed to keep the engine running for any reason? I wasn't at this incident and I can certainly say that killing the locomotive wouldn't have been the primary focus, but I'm curious why it was left running for an hour. It's been a few years since I had rail training at the Highbridge Yard, but I do recall them talking about the fuel shut-off, ect.
