[quote]NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City-bound Amtrak train became disabled on the night before Thanksgiving, one of the busiest travel days of the year, when two of its cars separated. There were no reports of injuries.
Train 68, called the Adirondack, was heading from Montreal, when the train experienced what Amtrak called a “mechanical issue” just before 7:30 p.m. near Albany, New York.
The train was carrying 287 passengers and crew. There was no word on what caused the problem.[/quote]
Of course, the denizens of the O Gauge Railroading forum knew what had happened immediately: The Lionel couplers ran over an uncoupling magnet, and the rest was history... ;-)
