An ABC Reporter Tweets the Worst Train Ride of His Life


An Amtrak ride from Washington to Philadelphia gone horribly awry last night was live-tweeted by at least one cold, terrified, somewhat hysteric passenger, ABC-7 Washington reporter Stephen Tschida. At some point in the night, a wire fell across the track, stranding the train for six and a half hours. It finally reached Philadelphia at 4:40 a.m., ten hours after it was supposed to arrive, and not before Tschida relayed to the world news of a passenger mutiny, the sad-eyed Spanish lady, his fear of impending doom, and his desire to break down and cry. Here’s his Twitter stream in reverse chronological order.
