Question Trains and Lightning

Looking through some pictures on the database that had lightning and other storm conditions made me wonder how or if trains are at all affected by lightning. 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).

Just something I'm curious about!
