Two replica trains were built out of wood for Burning Man.
They were placed on a track facing each other and filled with explosives.
Then, after a fireworks show, the trains were pushed on the track to one another and KABOOM!
The trains blew up in a massive fireball.
I’m telling you this not because I saw it, but because I heard about it as I was trying to peek over people’s heads on my tippy toes.
I saw NONE of it.
There were so many people surrounding The Great Train Wreck’s perimeter it was IMPOSSIBLE to see anything.
Still, it sounded AMAZING.
And I did managed to hold my camera up over my head and snap a few pictures.
The irony out of all this is that the explosions occurred BEFORE the collision.
Timing is everything.
