When the turbo takes a dump the diesel engine loses power right then and cannot pull a load.

#3: If the turbo diesel runs away ;), it can pull a load 200% better :D (for a short time). However, didn't see enough of smoke so most probably it wasn't the case..

As a Canadian, seeing this is so frustrating. Look at the rail technology in Europe and Asia, then look at these monstrosities.
You would think the second largest country in the world, with almost all it's population running in a straight line along the border with the US, would invest heavily in an efficient rail system.

#5 A diesel "running away" happens when the engine gets way more fuel than it should (thru a malfuntion) and keeps reviving higher and higher until it locks-up or blows apart. I have seen large diesels on ships that ran away by pulling lube oil from the crankcase and burning it. The only way to shut them down is to block the air intake or discharge a co2 extinguisher into the intake.
Running away has nothing to do with the turbo taking a squat like in the video.

#6 About what i was about to say, how ancient the railroad system has to be for diesel engines to be still used. And it's not about the weather, i live in Finland and we manage to make it work as fine with electricity as with diesel.
