An Amtrak train was stalled in Queens for more than five hours as toilets overflowed, according to reports on social media.

The train left Penn Station en route to Boston at 9:40 a.m. on Sunday and was still sitting in Queens at 3:30, toilets “filled to the brim,” passengers recounted, according to NBC News in New York.




“We sincerely apologize,” tweeted Amtrak in reply to passenger Keith A. Fleischman’s query about recourse. “Whenever a delay occurs, we work safely and expeditiously to get the trains moving again and passengers to their destinations.”

“A delay is a very poor way to describe 6 hours of people kept captive on a train without bathrooms or circulating air,” replied Fleischman.
