Maybe it's time to get serious about a Detroit-Chicago corridor.

Maybe the NS should offer Amtrak the same deal and see where that goes....

I doubt that Amtrak would be interested in the yards or the Kalamazoo-Elkhart line. This deal isn't dead yet. NS and Watco could rearrange the ownership and might get it past the STB next year, after the elections.

Well let's see if things can work out so nothing bad can come out of it!

As the feds noted, the problem is the degree of control the NS would continue to have over the line. Perhaps they can rearrange the deal to eliminate the worst of the government's objections.
