Today it was no heat in one of the cars. It was also a ghost train yesterday with no HEP.

Nothing surprises me here.  Amtrak continues to discourage long-distance passengers by providing either poor service or no service as the worst leadership in their history is still running that company.  Amtrak needs new leadership NOW!!!  National Association of Railroad Passengers (NARP), now called the Rail Passengers Association, what are you doing right now to get Amtrak to make changes for this poor service?  Are you really working with our Congressional Leaders?

If the GOP takes the Congress later this year, Amtrak advocates won't even get a hearing or a seat at the table.

The way it’s being operated maybe they should just pull the plug on the whole thing. It’s a catastrophic mess.

What makes anybody think they have one now???? 

Corridor Joe has Amtrak right where he wants it, or for that matter, where he only knows about it.

History shows support for Amtrak in Congress has been pretty bipartisan. It's been the Executive Branch that has bee either hostile or ambivalent. The two biggest round of route cuts both occured while the Democrat Part had the White House and Congress, Carter and Clinton. So far other than throw a bunch of money at Amtrak what has this Administration done. We have a Sec of Transportation that has been largely absent and when he does engage he blames everything on racism.
