RemarksThe train was as initially as wide as the fireball and similar in color. Then it trailed or narrowed off but it was still the same white-yellow color and all seemed to disappear over the horizon at the same time. It appeared so low in the sky I would have guessed it landed a few counties north of Richmond.
