(Daily Mail) An Amtrak train carrying 183 passengers has been at a standstill in the snow in Oregon for a day and a half.
The Coast Starlight train left Seattle on Sunday morning at 9.45am and was due to arrive in Los Angeles on Monday at 9pm but got stuck after hitting a downed tree in Oakridge, Oregon, around eight hours into the 35-hour journey.
It brought the train to a screeching halt in a rural part of the track where the snow is four feet deep.

The train has been there since around 6.30pm on Sunday night and there is no indication of when it will be able to move again because road closures and the thick snow and ice nearby have made it impossible for crews to reach it.
