Amtrak - Review about Train Service from Old Saybrook, Connecticut

Paid $150 from rte 128 in Massachusetts to nyc..got on train at 325 pm and at 4 somewhere in Rhode Island the train stopes and we have a nasty smell of rubber..then we are informed that the electrical circuits that make the train run have been damaged..so we sit for 30 minutes without any instruction..then 2 and a half hours later a rescue train come to save us..then I decide since I will be on this train for well over 6 hours I will get something to eat...only to find out they don't take credit cards! No complimentary bottle of water or anything was offered to us for the awful inconvenience...what the *** is this...a round trip to Boston costs the same as a flight..what kind of show are you running here amtrak??
