Passengers on an Amtrak train destined for New York City were perplexed as to how the train somehow traveling the wrong way, ending up in the suburbs of Philadelphia. If anyone of them had pressing matters in the city (which many of them likely did), they had to be pissed off.
According to CBS Philadelphia, Amtrak says that Train 644 left Philadelphia's 30th Street Station last Thursday and accidentally ended up on the SEPTA tracks. After traveling for several miles, someone finally realized the train was lost and it was stopped at the Bala Cynwyd train station in Bala Cynwyd, Pa.
Although the 130 passengers aboard the train were slightly inconvenienced, Amtrak said all of them were taken back to the city and placed on a different train that actually made it to New York. CBS Philadelphia adds that Amtrak Media Relations Director Steve Kulm released a statement stating that an investigation is underway and the crew that operated the train has been "held out of work" for debriefing and training purposes.
