    • Diesel engines slow and stop by reversing the polarity of generators that turn the wheels. Doing this causes the wheels to slow because they are being affected by a very strong magnet that is now providing resistance instead of driving power. Even with this "dynamic braking," trains need 1/4 to 1 mile to slow to a stop given the speeds depicted in this episode, which were only about 20 MPH.
