NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A pizza deliveryman came to the rescue of passengers stranded for hours on an Amtrak train.

Passengers got hungry when the New York-to-Washington, D.C. train experienced mechanical issues and got stuck in Delaware around 7 p.m. Sunday.

One employee gave away chocolate and some moms shared their Mother’s Day champagne gifts, CBS2 reported.

But one passenger thought outside the box and ordered a pizza from a local restaurant.

Video shows the dedicated deliveryman walking along the tracks near a creek to find the customer and deliver the pies.

The train was delayed nearly three hours.
