Pulling into Chicago almost a full day behind schedule, one Amtrak passenger recounted "the train from hell," and others are vowing they will never use the rail service again.
Amtrak's California Zephyr arrived 19 hours late full of "tired, hungry and stinky" passengers, according to a story posted on WMAQ's Web site.
Two separate Amtrak trains are having problems of their own, WMAQ said:
- A Denver-bound train that left Chicago arrived 23 hours late.
- A San Antonio-to-Chicago train derailed in St. Louis on Thursday, temporarily stranding 176 passengers.
