I watched the video. It's not the first time this has happened.

The Willamette Valley used to have competing electric railways on opposite sides of the river. A most civilized way to travel.

The Oregon Electric line was purchase by a consortium that consisted of General Motors, an oil company, and what became Greyhound or Trailways bus service. They stacked up the rolling stock and torched it. Details were in an Oregon Times magazine article that I can't find. If it turns up I will make my first Wikipedia edit.
