Yesterday evening, a southbound Surfliner train from Los Angeles to San Diego ran out of fuel. Amtrak told the Associated Press that is was “an unusual occurrence” and that they will be looking into it. Passengers were stuck for two hours into early Monday morning about 15 miles from the last stop in downtown San Diego.
