I hope that deliveryman got a good tip . For some reason I am flashing back to the endless thread we had once upon a time about tipping. I'd like to think even those who are against tipping would think this guy went above and beyond the call of duty walking along that track to make his delivery!

I doubt they brought pizza for the entire train and depending on where the train broke own it may not exactly have been beyond the call of duty. Anyways, a real hero would have pushed the train clear to NY.

He had to hike along the tracks for a while to find the train, that's dedication to duty.

Is there some other source for "a while" and does delivering pizza for money really fall under "duty"? Seems like more of a pizza for hire mercenary kind of thing. Probably deliver pizza to his own mother on mothers day if someone paid him enough...

According to‘Can we deliver to a stuck train?’: Deliveryman brings pizza to a stranded Amtrak train.:

Quote:
he then navigated his way behind a row of houses, past a fence, over a berm and across a small stream — all while balancing two pizzas in a bag.
and then he walked along the train for a bit, as can be seen in the video.

The article also says he got a $32 tip. $12 from the man who ordered and $20 from a bystander who was pleased to see he brought plates and such.
