So, I just had a game in my T25/2 on the dead rail map. I was in the eastern corner, where I like to camp. I took a hit, seemingly from the left, but there were no enemies flanking me. It seemed like it came from the map border, but there were no enemy tanks there. This did cost me, as I lost over half my health with an engine fire. Anyone know what's up with this? It's happened before, although very rarely. Couldn't have been team damage, since team damage isn't a thing here.

You were shot from the game next door? ;)

I recall the same thing one time in that exact spot. There's been multiple reports in the forum of the indicator being iffy. I've had it on other maps too where somehow I would seemingly get shot from the other side of the red line. Or from behind, when you just come off spawn, with obviously nobody behind you, yet somehow it indicates somebody is behind you. In those scenarios, I think you just have to assume the indicator is off by 180 degrees and that you're getting sniped.

Because it's such a popular spot, is it possible a red fired blindly and got lucky?

Yeah a glitch. I've had that happen in the same spot. Might've been an invisible airstrike
