Holland Public Safety Helps Amtrack Riders

HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) -- Sunday’s severe weather caused power outages and also caused travel problems.  The Amtrack train traveling between Chicago and Holland was delayed in Chicago and then delayed again by a tree across the tracks approaching Holland, which put the arrival time three hours late.  Mayor Dykstra says the Holland Public Safety Department helped the weary travelers out.  Amtrack and the Holland Public Safety Department were communicating.  Officers picked up the travelers where the train had stopped and gave them a ride to the Holland train station.  When they arrived, the doors were locked, but Public Safety officers were able to unlock the door so the people could wait inside.  Then, the officers brought hot coffee back for everyone.  Dykstra said that he received many emails and Facebook posts that people were grateful and quite impressed by the “above and beyond service provided by the Holland department of Public Safety.”
