A passenger on the train posted on Twitter that he "heard a pop, smelled electrical burning, felt a rush of cold air" then looked back and saw part of the train missing.

Amtrak says a recovery engine got to the passengers just before 9 p.m.

NewsChannel 13 has been told the passengers have been transferred and are back en route.
