16. It is VERY simple to shut down a locomotive diesel engine.

All it takes is to push one button in a certain location. No key or special code is needed. It is designed that way in case of derailment, fire or other emergency situation. So, the fireman must have been trained in exactly what to do in an emergency situation. They had a fire, they killed the engine, and put out the fire.
