Thanks for posting this Global2010. Prayers for those in Texas battling damage from the flooding.

The other anchor said maybe we should send them all copies of Harry Potter to keep them occupied (sarcastically speaking).

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)?

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?

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.

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.

I rode Amtrak cross country once. Wow. You meet some characters, let me tell ya. I wouldn’t get too excited about one rider sounding the alarm. They need to head down to the club car for a spell...

The Anchor on CNN said well sounds like they are not in danger or lacking food/toilet so you can't say anything negative about Amtrak.

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?

“How much of Texas is flooding?”

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.

I got about 100 4-letter words for the clueless who travel by any means during traditional thunderstorm season over a good chunk of the country and expect no delays, no problems, no "Acts of God"...

All long-distance interstate transportation is connected to everything else.
