Around 10 min later, a good citizen pulled up, who just happened to have a chainsaw. This man arrived before the MOW crew did, so he helped by chainsawing the small branches of the tree. Around the same time this was happening, some passengers began to disembark the train. Some were calling for their friends to pick them up, but mostly others were calling Uber and other ridesharing services to get them to their final destinations.
