Bomb threat delays train

(The Los Angeles Times posted the following article on its website on October 3.)

FULLERTON, Calif. -- About 200 passengers were evacuated from an Amtrak train for more than three hours Monday after an anonymous caller warned officials of a bomb stashed on board.

An extensive search uncovered no explosive devices, officials said.

The call came shortly after 7 p.m. as the northbound train approached the Fullerton station, a spokesman for the Fullerton Police Department said.

After the passengers were evacuated, he said, the train was moved to a remote area where it was searched until nearly 10:30 p.m. by police and representatives of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.
