For Black Friday I'll declare a "super wild card" absolutely anything that's made you smile, providing you can argue its relevance to real world railways.

As Assistant Treasurer of our local tram society - A tram in Messina. It's relevance to railways? It runs on rails.

MAJOR wheelspin, must have been sitting stationary with the wheels spinning for a few minutes. The famous "Blue Peter" Durham spin was memorable, bit nothing like this.

My guess would be that was caused by a six wheel bogie diesel "helper" either behind or in the train. If it was a manned banker the driver had better hope they find a fault in the traction control if he wants to keep the job.
