No one was hurt when the train got into a tree that fell on tracks on Sunday at 18:18, Amtrak said. Passengers reported the "Kumbai" atmosphere during the test.
The train draws the "Union-Pacific" locomotive back to Eugene, says Tim McMahan, Union Pacific spokeswoman, who owns the Oregon railroad, where the train was on the verge.
"The train was incapacitated due to weather conditions and beaten trees," McMahan said in CNN's email.
Emily Ujirik, a passenger, told CNN that the train had rolled about a half a mile on Tuesday morning before stopping again.
And Amtrak said it expects more delays than the former Los Angeles Train is returning to the north.
While they were drowned all these hours, passengers could see near the highway Oregon 58, closed through snow and ice. In the city of Oakland there is no electricity through the weather, said passenger Rebecca Dodson.
The National Weather Service predicted Sunday that it could drop to 2 feet in the area. By Tuesday morning, at least, the leg has accumulated, reports the weather service. The opencast in February is an average of 1.1 inches.
Eugene, home to the University of Oregon about 45 miles northwest, had a record high of 9.5 inches on Monday, reports the weather service.
Amtrak marker Mark Mallari told CNN that none of the 183 passengers and dozens of crew members were injured, but after the accident, "conditions have further deteriorated with numerous tracks of snow trails and dead trees."
Crews using alternative transportation, train 11 stopped in Oujde, Oregon, – he said. "We are actively working with" Union Pacific "to clear the right road and extract passengers from the train."
The train had power and enough food on board, for which passengers would not be shot, said Amtrak on Twitter on Monday.
& # 39; Giant Cumba side & # 39;
With the help of heat, power and (yet) food, passengers said the mood on board is surprisingly upbeat.
"It just looked like a giant kumbaya side," Dodson told CNN early Tuesday. "Strangers play cards. The teenager plays his ukulele children to sleep. Ladies who had never met before danced in the passages."
