The forthcoming "Chicago Fire" train wreck has now been recorded for future broadcast.

Hicks Car Works reports that the steam locomotive servicing area is being used for the show.  The Illinois Railway Museum's Barn 9 web camera has been disconnected from the internet to prevent any unathorized out-takes.  The steam locomotives were moved out to the main line for the duration of the shooting, and the Chicago and North Western Commuter Streamliner became a train of the Chicago Commuter Rail authority that had a close encounter of the incendiary kind with a tank car.

We'll have to wait a few more weeks to see which characters' development is going to be interrupted by an "All Hands" alarm headed to trackside.
