A snow storm has blocked the southbound Coast Starlight near Oakridge OR. There are 183 people on the train and they have been snowbound for over 24 hours already. Fortunately there is plenty of food for the passengers and the HEP is still functioning, so everyone appears to be safe.
A passenger who was in contact with news media reported that:
quote:...train staff have remained "great, very professional" and morale among passengers has been good.
It appears that Amtrak (and UP) are doing their best to handle a challenging situation. The train is expected back in Eugene sometime on Tuesday.
