Isn't the Gulf Breeze mixed in with the Consist as well?
Or Did Amtrak run a seperate train back then?

Boy did Amtrak fall to pieces: 17 cars then, I believe 6 now. Where did all the people go?

Yield price management, purposely reduced consists, cheap gas, affordable airline fares, and a dearth of local advertising, to name a few

The normal pre-covid consist was 8 or 9 cars. Take away the 2 MHC's, and the Gulf Breeze cars, and you have pretty much what Amtrak ran until March 2020...
