No infrastructure problem here

I guess by now you’ve heard all the Republicans refusing to discuss Amtrak funding, it had “nothing to do” with the recent disaster. Probably nothing to do with this, either. Just another coincidence!

MILWAUKEE —An Amtrak locomotive caught fire near Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood Thursday afternoon.

“At around 12:06 this afternoon, we received a call of a locomotive engine that’s on fire,” Milwaukee Fire Department Deputy Chief Brian Smith said.

The Hiawatha Line train was arriving in Milwaukee from Chicago when it caught fire near Barclay and Walker streets.

All 51 passengers were safely evacuated from the train and bused the rest of the way.

Eventually, some 60 firefighters would work the scene. It was challenging because they had to pull the hoses up to the elevated tracks.
