Amtrak train delayed by bomb threat

(The Associated Press circulated the following article on October 25.)

WESTERLY, R.I. -- An Amtrak train from Boston to Washington was delayed for more than two hours Tuesday evening as law enforcement investigated a bomb threat, authorities said.

A man called Amtrak in Boston and said there was an explosive device ''set to go off'' on Train 177, which left Boston at 5:35 p.m. carrying 115 passengers.

The train was stopped in Westerly, the next available stop, at about 7:30 p.m. Passengers got off the eight-car train and a thorough search was done, Westerly police Capt. Lauren Matarese said.

Passengers' hand-held luggage also was searched before they were allowed to get back on the train, she said. No explosives were found.

There had been no arrests as of Tuesday night, authorities said.
