NEW YORK (AP) — A high-speed Amtrak train heading from Boston to Washington lost power in New York City and was stuck for almost seven hours. There were no injuries reported among the more than 100 passengers and crew on board Monday. An Amtrak spokesperson said they were offered water and snacks. One passenger said people on the train weren’t kept informed as the hours progressed. When the train finally did get moving around 3:20 p.m. after a rescue engine, the passenger said there was a smell of smoke that made the last stretch of the journey scary.
