Why didn't they just the engine down? The only thing I could think of is personnel safety, but you can see that at least one of the crew members was inside the cab for first quarter of the video, so evidently it wasn't that dangerous?

I've never worked on locomotive, but I have worked in a ship's engine room and if we were burning oil like that it would have been an immediate no questions asked emergency shut down.
