    True story, only it happened nearly eight years ago. Here's the story on Snopes: http://www.snopes.com/photos/accident/trainfire.asp

    I was wondering when this happened as you can see the bystanders in shirt sleeves. And there's no snow. It hasn't exactly been shirt-sleeve weather in Kansas lately!
