Train Stolen by Teenager

Two boys, aged 13 and 16, escaped from an Ohio group home, started up a locomotive, disconnected the train, and drove it twelve miles down the tracks. I guess the Microsoft Train Simulator works pretty good as "training" software too.

Over on SoCal Railfan, they're talking about how a couple days ago an engineer was removed from the work site and terminated for having a photo of the locomotive's cab on the web. According to the thread, the Feds are investigating all cab shots and removing guilty engineers. Reportedly, such acts are a threat to national security (and the security of Ohio group homes). I've got to wonder if Microsoft will continue to sell their product.
