Elena managed to get Drake aboard the train using her 4x4 as it left. Drake navigated on top of and through the train in order to rescue Chloe. On the way, he confronted soldiers, a helicopter and Lt. Draza.
During this sequence, the helicopter attacked cause several wagons to derail and become uncoupled. An explosion caused by Drake caused the rearmost half of the train to derail completely and become the wreck featured in Chapter 15.
The front half of the train got away unscathed and managed to transport Lazarevic and his men into the Himalayas.

The Train Wreck is also a map in Uncharted 2 multiplayer.
