That's not sabotage at all.

As it relates to the fiber, its not "deliberately and maliciously 
destroying [fiber]"... unless the goal was to cause a derailment which 
hurt the train operator both from the operation of the train and 
subsequent revenues they might lose from fiber operations along the same
right-of-way -- then *that* would be sabotage.

In the case you outlined above, barring other motivations, the fiber 
would be "collateral damage".

That said, Cogent's page says nothing about sabotage 
( and I can't find the reference on teliasonera's 
page.... Link please?
