Diesel locomotives obviously are nothing more than big diesel generators producing electricity for their power, made me wonder if a direct lightning strike would cause damage or fire on an loco (there is a lot of metal on these as well).
It seems to me that something like that would probably kick the ground relay. That would be my first guess, plus the general damage associated with a lightning strike.
