Walking Boston reports a turkey flew into the windshield of the engine powering his Boston-bound Amtrak regional train in Mansfield shortly after 4 p.m., forcing the train to a halt.
Gregory Colica, heading to the Hub from New York tweets the announcement that came over the PA after train 86 stopped:
A wild turkey jumped up and smashed the windshield, so we had to stop and brush it off. Sorry for the delay folks - Boston in 10.
Moving, but at low speed. Conductor said that wind is the problem, trying to avoid further breakage.
