The only way I could truly see them as dangerous is in the case of a directed path for the released steam (such as in UK practice with copper pipes) lifting ballast and turning it into shrapnel. I dont even know of an example of that happening however....definitely fails the incineration aspect

"DANGEROUS EMERGENCY STEAM PURGE. Almost a train crash with a faulty pressure valve".

Absolute total bollocks! This sort of sensational rubbish from publicity seeking losers does a great deal of harm to the heritage railway movement as Joe Public ends up believing it. I feel sorry for the Puffing Billy guys who were just doing their job. I'll get off my soapbox now.
