NYC-Bound Amtrak Train Winds Up in Philly Suburb After Wrong Turn

By
NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 08: People board an Amtrak train at Penn Station on February 8, 2011 in New York City. Amtrak, a government-owned corporation, has joined up with New Jersey's two U.S. senators to propose a new rail link to New York City under the Hudson River. The "Gateway Project", which was formally proposed on Monday, would include two tunnels under the Hudson River and increase the train traffic under the river from 62 trains per day to 92 and cost an estimated $13.5 billion. This plan is looked at as an alternative after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie killed another rail link plan last year after he deemed it too costly to New Jersey residents.

The engineer driving the Keystone train from Harrisburg, Pa., apparently missed a signal on the way out of Philadelphia and wound up on a track to the suburb of Bala Cynwyd. But who hasn't! They should really get GPS on those things.
