As someone who has taken many train trips through the Rockies before, it never really occurred to me that a train might get stuck out there. The locomotives are just so massive and powerful, it doesn't seem like anything should be able to stop them, right? But of course, there's only so much they can overcome.
Turns out, I'm luckier than I realized. But one thing that doesn't surprise me is how well train passengers handled it all. It all just reinforces my belief that train is the way to go when you can.
