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.
We have an engine! Path needs clear north but #Amtrak is getting us hooked up. Not out of the woods yet. @NBCNews @CBS @cnnbrk @TODAYshow @HLNTV @CNN @ABC @fox12oregon @komonews

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.
The democrats also have never, and never will, understand that the surest route to screwing up something is to get Uncle Sam involved.
…amtrak also locked the bathroom doors….
Lets put aside the details of the train incident for the moment. That fact is that electric power does go off line at times for numerous different reason. The thing is that this so called “New Green Deal” is nothing of the kind. It is not new. It is just old socialist ideas and agenda for redistribution of the wealth repackaged to transfer power and control to the selected elite. And it is not all that green. Even were it feasible; it would do little to improve the environment or green up the planet. Its impact on the climate (if any) would be insignificant. And is not any sort of deal I would ever want to be a part of as it would destroy our economy, undermine our society, and probably cause the collapse of our government.
read the original message, then most questions would not have been stated
Was the train stopped because of damage to the locomotive after hitting the tree? Was it because of the power failure? Was it due to heavy snow trapping the train? Was there some other cause? I’ve seen several articles on this incident, but none have explained WHY the train was trapped. Lousy reporting.
Watch all of “Atlas Shrugged”.
And then look where were headed.
How many was on medications and ran out or didn’t bring extra because its not a all day trip.
