Looks like a propane truck refueling a switch heater was a little to close to the tracks.
Thankfully no other issues resulted.

I see they're already on this in the CN updates thread. They have some more details on the train there.

You would think that it might be a good idea to park your propane truck more than 12" away from an active high speed rail line. What kind of safety training did he get?
Could have been an unmitigated disaster with not only his truck being blown to smithereens, but who knows what the loaded tank cars next to it were hauling. Anyway, I've always been a bit skittish about railroads and propane. I've been to Crescent City, IL...
