Hundreds of Amtrak passengers in the northeast stuck for hours with no heat on a freezing train stranded on the tracks yesterday unleashed their frustration on social media.
A train travelling to Boston got stuck in Connecticut during a snow storm and lost power, stranding nearly 300 passengers for about three hours, according to the Boston Globe.
No one was injured, but passengers weren’t happy about the delay. Some passengers told WHDH News that they weren’t sure what was going on while they were stuck.
The problem was attributed to snow and ice buildup on an overhead power system, an Amtrak spokesperson told the Globe. Another train was sent to pick up the stranded passengers.
Here are some of the tweets and Instagram posts that came in from passengers who were travelling with Amtrak on Thursday:
