Amtrak makes money every time they make any special moves including special private cars being moved.  Their leadership should understand this; however with some of the people who are in charge, they don't understand.

How do you know that to be factual statement? I am not arguing with you but simply interested in the what, how, and why of your statement. It would seem that if it was very profitable they would certainly make more of these special moves to produce more badly needed revenue.
