A Chicago-bound Amtrak train has been stuck in Indianapolis for more than a day because tracks are closed thanks to heavy, blowing snow.

An Amtrak spokesman says about 150 passengers are onboard the train that left Washington, D.C. Sunday. Some passengers have already gotten off the train, which is at an Indianapolis station. Others will be put up in hotel rooms.

Chicago high school teacher Rob Chambers has been on the train in Indianapolis with his husband and mother-in-law for more than 27 hours. He says passengers are passing time by reading, but says "we're all starting to go a little stir-crazy."

The three decided to take the train after their flight to Chicago was canceled because of another snowstorm.

Some roads in Indiana remain impassable
