Over one hundred Americans have been stuck in an Amtrak train for three days in Oregon, with help finally reaching them. The Daily Caller reports:
An Amtrak train has been stuck on the tracks for the past three days in Oakridge, Oregon.
Rebekah Dodson, a passenger, tweeted Tuesday morning that help finally arrived, as a relief crew gained access to the train, according to CBS News. Amtrak says the train heading from Seattle to Los Angeles hit a tree at around 6:18 pm Sunday night.
The train was carrying 183 passengers, none of which have been allowed to leave the train since they became stuck. Amtrak reported nobody was injured on the train after hitting the tree.

Amtrak made the decision to keep the passengers on the stranded train because the power had been out in Oakridge and it was dealing with problems of its own.
The fact that Democrats want to rely on electrically powered trains instead of airplanes or diesel locomotives shows how little they understand the vastly diverse geography of America.
