This all started just before 10PM that a person called saying there was a train going past Lower Mountain road which is off Salisbury Road Route 106 and that there were 5 of the cars on fire and train was heading towards Salisbury (west) . Moncton Fire responded and RCMP both Codiac and District 11 searching for a train on fire. Then a few minutes later another call that a piece of that Train was on fire around Harrisville Blvd, which is on the other side of the city of Moncton , so more Moncton Firefighters with a few cars from Codiac RCMP headed out Shediac Road to try and find the other part of the burning train . Firefighters were on top of a overpass which is by the ramp to Highway 2 T.C.H. watching the train go past and there was NO FIRE at this end of the city. Salisbury Fire Department were also responding for the other part of the Train on fire. The train was last seen going west on the tracks around 10:15pm and then came back the other way , appeared to be working fine! CN Police were also responding but were not at the scene on Harrisville Blvd area. I spoke to a Codiac Officer at the scene and he said that it was wheel lock, and when the Train was travelling, it would appear from the sparks to the callers, that the train was on fire, but he added that everything was fine and there was NO FIRE>......
