Amtrak Engine Runs Out of Fuel Near San Diego

August 26, 2008

SAN DIEGO (AP) — It was the little engine that couldn’t — because it was thirsty for fuel.

A quick train trip down the coast turned into a long haul for more than 80 Amtrak passengers when their train from Los Angeles to San Diego ran out of fuel Sunday night.

Amtrak spokesman Cliff Cole said the train sat for about two hours on the northern edge of San Diego before another engine came along to push it the last several miles to the San Diego train station.
