CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A train derailed in Gaston County on Monday afternoon, causing problems for Amtrak across the Carolinas and in Charlotte.
The 19 and 20 trains were delayed for about 5 hours.
The 19 train was heading south while the 20 was heading north.
Passengers waiting for the 20 to arrive from Greenville, S.C. had to wait inside the station in North Charlotte.
Many had to re-book on a different train that will take them to Raleigh and then to the north.
The train is expected to depart at 7:30 a.m.
One man said he had been waiting since midnight and said he has an appointment in Baltimore he needed to get to that he will miss.
