Amtrak Train Stuck In Oregon For More Than A Day Is Moving

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Passengers stranded on an Amtrak train for more than a day in a remote and snowed-in part of Oregon said the train was moving again Tuesday after it got stuck when it hit a tree that fell on the tracks. "It's just like relief. I'm just excited to get off of here," Abbie Jeffrey, 16, told the KGW television station. The Coast Starlight train left Seattle for Los Angeles early Sunday. It hit the tree a tree southeast of Eugene, Oregon, Sunday evening. The 183 passengers were kept on the train because the heavy snow had knocked out power in the town of Oakridge, the closest populated place to the train, Amtrak said in a statement. There was enough food on the train for the passengers, the statement said.
