This is my own personal nightmare, and I really feel for these people. Nearly 200 passengers were trapped on an Amtrak train for 36 hours. The train was trapped on a snowy stretch of track just south of Eugene, Oregon. All 183 passengers and 12 crew members became trapped in the snow on board the train on Sunday. Amtrak crews had to clear 40 miles of track blocked by snow and fallen trees to reach them.
It's the Coast Starlight from Seattle to Los Angeles, and it's one of America’s most spectacular train rides... In good weather!
