I could stick weld that back into place with a 110v Harbor Freight welder. Like new. I own a grinder. Anything is possible.

Likely much more to that story...
Because most trains have more drive axles and only 1 set of wheel burn thru the rails?

I attempted to find more information on this picture. I failed. Curious as to the how and why of it all?

"Trains use air brakes. An air compressor on the engine will send air through a series of tubes that are on all the rail cars (train brakes). When there is air in the train brakes it means air is pushing the brakes away from the axles. When there is no air then the train brakes will force themselves closed stopping the car quickly. If there is a long string of heavy cars without air in the train brakes, they will not be moved by a train engine. What likely happened here was a long string of cars lost air pressure but the operator failed to stop the engine. So it just spun it's wheels until the track melted"

Yes, 2rd is what happens in many cases... More so if one E-motor is geared to 3 or 4 axles.
It kind of matches 1st pic but too close pic to tell w/o more goes w/ the story.
