PERRYVILLE, Md. - An Amtrak train that was stranded near Perryville for hours started moving again overnight on its way to Philadelphia.
We're told Amtrak region train 188 left from union station in Washington, DC Thursday night around 8:30pm but has been stopped for about six and a half hours.
An Amtrak spokesperson told our sister station, WJLA-TV, that a wire came down across the track and blocked all Amtrak travel between Baltimore and Wilmington, Delware.
WJLA's Stephen Tschida was enroute to Philadelphia and was stuck on the train.
Tschida say the train arrived in Philadelphia around 4:30am. 10 hours after its scheduled arrival time.
Tschida says the train was traveling between 15 and 30 mph because of a power outage on the tracks.
Meanwhile, Tschida reported that Amtrak wasn't doing a good job of keeping passengers informed.
