Impressive fire and collapse of a wood trestle in Texas.
Anyone know what line this was on?

Texas news story on the fire:

Comments with the original YouTube link also refer to a newspaper story that had some claims about arson.

Beautiful scenery along its 67 miles...track condition was terrible, but the new owners were beginning to put a dent in the railroads' appetite for ties. Hope they can find the money to rebuild.
