Thieves vandalized the Ottawa-Wakefield steam train this morning, according to this CBC story. They cut copper wiring off the locomotive. Two people were arrested nearby.
Copper thieves drive me crazy. They are a big problem. In my previous job, I heard stories of thieves breaking into power substations and cutting ground wires. This jeopardizes their safety and also the safety of workers, as those ground wires are there for a reason.
I hope the damage to the train is not too bad and can be easily repaired.
