DRIVING HOME – Nick Tusa and Mary Katherine Lonatro pack luggage Wednesday in a rented car outside Union Station.
They drove home to Biloxi after the Amtrak train they boarded in New York ended its run in Meridian. The southbound Amtrak Crescent was headed for New Orleans, but shortened its route because of Tropical Storm Isidore.
The 30 other passengers boarded a bus at Union Station, while the five Amtrak crew members spent the night in Philadelphia.
