Freight train issue delays Amtrak passengers
A problem with a freight train ended up delaying passengers on an Amtrak train.
Police with the port of Beaumont say the freight train was too high for the bridge over the Neches River and the top of the train hit the bridge while the train was moving. That affected the tracks.
That problem forced passengers on an Amtrak train heading from Beaumont to New Orleans to take buses to finish their trip.
