"Our train had previously been delayed by more than 40 minutes at another transfer so we were already pretty frustrated," said commuter Dominic Umile. "And totally sober, which definitely worsened things."

Twenty something years commuting to Penn Station and I retired from NYC advertising this last unstressed right now.

So one day a switch flips and NYC suddenly can't handle transit for two months?

A train wasn't getting electrical power so they sent in an electric train to rescue it, and it lost power too. Amtrak train from Miami became stuck while entering Penn Station, due to "an overhead power issue," according to Amtrak spokesperson Mike Tolbert. The company sent in a rescue locomotive, which also became stuck as a result of the electrical issues.

Are these people the densest motherfarkers ever?
