Its shocking that this could happen. It is possible. Assume the guy got in there and closed and locked the door and the bed was down. If he prevents or scares her into silence then it's possible.
Don't know how full that car was. The crew would have to be passing through at exactly the right time.
Considering the EB passes through Wolf Point at 11:41 a.m. (if running on time), it's possible most people were at lunch or in the lounge car.
That said, think about how noisy the train gets at times. If he had a pillow or his hand over her mouth, no one would have heard her, even if the car had been full. Even if she'd kicked the door or wall, people would just attribute it to the random banging you hear when going over switches or when car attendants move berths around. Add to that, people in their rooms generally wear headphones.
At 11:41, if I'm not at lunch, I'm in my room with the curtain and/or door closed and my headphones on. I wouldn't have heard a thing.
That poor lady. The report of her injuries is just awful. I cannot even begin to imagine what she is going through.
