CHEMULT, Ore. — A passenger train running from Los Angeles to Seattle was stalled for about four hours in the snowy mountains of Southern Oregon.
Amtrak spokeswoman Christina Leeds said the Coast Starlight train with 358 passengers aboard had a mechanical problem Sunday outside the town of Chemult in the Cascade Range.
But, she says, the train made it to Eugene Sunday afternoon, where it got a new engine, and was able to proceed to Seattle.
