Amtrak train breaks down leaving passengers in the dark and the heat

/ Source: WHEC-TV

It was a hectic night for dozens of passengers on anAmtraktrain headed to Niagara Falls. Our cameras were at the train station on Central Avenue in Rochester shortly after the train was towed there from Lyons.

The train broke down on the tracks around 9:00 Monday night and was in the dark for a couple hours after that, which meant no power and no air conditioning on the train.

There is no word yet on what caused the train to break down. Some of the passengers were bussed to Niagara Falls.
