The Insurgent Capture Express. This train does stop for new passengers. From ABC News:
"Iraqi security forces captured Saddam Hussein's half-brother and former adviser, government officials said Sunday, dealing a blow to an insurgency that some Iraqi officials claim the most-wanted fugitive was helping organize and fund.

Sabawi Ibrahim al-Hassan was No. 36 on the list of 55 most-wanted Iraqis and the six of diamonds in the U.S.-issued deck of cards released by U.S. authorities after American troops invaded Iraq in March 2003, and among a recent group of 29 most-wanted supporters of insurgents in Iraq. The United States had a $1 million bounty on his head.

Officials in interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi's office, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed al-Hassan's capture but gave no details on where it took place or when. Capt. Ahmed Ismael, an intelligence officer in the Interior Ministry, said al-Hassan was detained early Sunday."
