On Sunday, an Amtrak train traveling from New York to Washington, D.C. found itself stranded on the track near Wilmington, Delaware. Sitting still for hours left some of the passengers quite hungry and given that Amtrak 161 had originated in New York City, it’s not all that surprising that passengers used to getting anything and everything delivered to them would try ordering food to their stranded train.

These resourceful passengers called Dom’s NY Style Pizzeria to see if they could get pizzas delivered straight to the train tracks — and luckily for them, a valiant deliveryman was up to the task. Dom Leary, who has been delivering pizzas for 18 years, parked at a house near the track, walked behind a row of houses, past a fence, down a hill and then over a stream, all while carrying the lucky passengers’ pizza.

As Leary reached the train, passengers began waving and cheering. One Twitter user caught the entire episode on his phone:

It’s good to know that even out of Seamless-ing distance, we can still get almost anything delivered. Way to go, Dom’s!
