None of the 183 passengers on board were injured in the incident, Amtrak noted.
Almost 200 people have been stuck on an Amtrak train in OR for more than 30 hours.
No one was hurt when the train hit a tree that had fallen onto the tracks Sunday about 6:18 p.m., Amtrak said.
Amtrak said no one was hurt when the train hit a tree that had fallen onto the tracks.
"This is hell, and it's getting worse", Rebekah Dodson wrote at the 30-hour mark.
The company noted passengers were kept on board the train because of the power outages in Oakridge and to avoid separating passengers between the town's two small hotels.
But Dodson said Tuesday morning that passengers had been told breakfast would be the last meal available.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday said his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi should "give peace a chance". There are also unconfirmed reports that clashes have erupted on the ground along the Line of Control.
And even though the train was finally on the go again by Tuesday, headed for Eugene first, with subsequent stops set for Portland, Ore., and then Seattle, Irvin said she could not estimate when it would be arriving. "We can't get off the train because there's four feet of snow in every direction, there's nowhere to go".
The service operates daily between Seattle and Los Angeles, Magliari said.
"It's just been like a giant kumbaya party".
However, those few hours stretched into almost two days, as inclement weather complicated efforts to clear the tracks of snow and get an alternate engine to tow the train away.
After more than a day of being on the track, the Amtrak train began to move again, heading toward Eugene, about 45 miles from where it was stuck. By Tuesday morning, at least a foot had accumulated, the weather service said.
Amtrak Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Scot Naparstek said in a Tuesday morning statement that the company had decided leaving passengers on the train was the safest option. Oakridge averages 2.8cm in February.
Amtrak made the decision to keep the passengers on the stranded train because the power had been out in Oakridge and it was dealing with problems of its own. Crew members had been "professional and nice" throughout.
"A lot of the [older] kids have been really good but they're having to run up and down and it's a lot", Bigby told the news station.
