An Amtrak train traveling from Harrisburg to New York wound up in the suburbs of Philadelphia after taking a wrong turn upon leaving Philly’s 30th Street Station.

The train ended up in the city’s southwest, where local officials helped it get back to 30th Street. The 130 passengers then disembarked and boarded another train to New York.

Amtrak is investigating the incident and its crew is being given additional training, a spokesperson for the company said.
