MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. -- An Amtrak passenger train traveling from Chicago to the Detroit area was stopped for more than five hours in northern Indiana because of mechanical troubles.
Amtrak spokesman Steve Kulm says the locomotive for the Wolverine line started having trouble near the Michigan City, Ind., station Wednesday night with about 110 passengers on board.
Kulm says the train's passenger cars had power and heating while it waited for a replacement locomotive to arrive. The train resumed its route to Pontiac, Mich., with the new locomotive about 1 a.m. today.
