    Default Southern Pacific 18 blows a cylinder.

    Southern Pacific 18 was working on the Durango and Silverton line on the 17th when a cylnder head shattered. It happens around 35:10. Never seen that happen before. They had to get a diesel to pull it back to Durango.

    I noticed that the cylinder end plates were still in primer . Looks like they had just recently done some work on that side .
