Thanks for posting this Global2010. Prayers for those in Texas battling damage from the flooding.
The passenger probably suggested this. No doubt just a scam to get the latest Harry Potter book.
Maybe they could let them off the train to pee in the bushes.
Would really help to know where this is? Texas is big...and what are the circumstances that caused the train to be stuck (all you have here is that both ends of track are washed out...why and how did that happen)?
Where is the President! Has FEMA been mobilized?
Do not know if this is same area.
CNN: Hello CNN how may I help you.
CALLER: Help us!!! We’ve been stranded for an hour and cant get off the train!!!
CNN: Ma’am..settle down...is this in anyway the fault of the Republicans or President Bush?
CALLER: Uh..no its raining like hell and the tracks washed out!!!
CNN: I understand that ma’am but is there anyone there who is willing to bash the President or say bad things about how our damn country is embracing global Warmed up Climatology?
CALLER: No, no... we just want off..help us. we watch you in all the airports !!
CNN: CLICK..(dial tone)
Rivers and creeks are up and some out of their banks in east Texas, maybe central too. We have had tremendous rains for 2 months almost. Do you have a location for the train?
I’m not seeing a problem here. What am I missing?
Knippa Texas, near San Antonio.
The weather has been brutal all day!!
Damn! Amtrak is having a helluva time! Just this week, two different Amtrak trains hit vehicles in the Lakeland, Fl area. Two accidents in less than 24 hours and within just a fews miles of each other.

5 dead, including 4-year-old girl, as heavy rain floods North Texas towns and strand residents
So...this train is stuck in Texas?
Can’t tell from the thread body...
A lot of central and east Texas has been experiencing flooding. Where I live, it has rained something like 56 out of the last 58 days. Sime of those days have given us 5 or more inches.
No heart wrenching crisis that can be spun to be Bush's fault so no coverage.
They’ve been getting it pretty bad, but so have some areas of NM. Why are they calling CNN? Can’t they get through to 911?
Hwy. 90 is closed by Hondo. All campers in the hill country located on the Frio River have been asked to leave. They had about 10 inches during the night and this morning. Hwy 55 remains closed. Several roads in and around San Antonio have been closed off and on since yesterday afternoon.
All long-distance interstate transportation is connected to everything else.
