Amtrak Train Delayed After 1 Car Derails In Dallas

DALLAS (AP) – An Amtrak train delayed several hours in Dallas after one set of wheels went off the tracks has resumed its journey.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said Monday that no one was injured in the incident involving the Texas Eagle, when runs from San Antonio to Chicago.

He says one car Sunday afternoon had a mechanical problem while nearing Union Station. Magliari says passengers were moved out of that car to other ones, so the damaged car could be removed from the train.

The train entered the Dallas station about 6:35 p.m. Sunday and departed by 9 p.m.

The Texas Eagle carried 174 passengers and crew.

    That train never runs on time anyway. Not in Texas so I’m sure very few passengers were on the train, thank God.
