Nice article. This resonated with me.....as much as it speaks to the obvious. One could likely make the same comparative, 53 years later! 

“Amtrak, it got off to a very, very hopeful start, but it got off to a really rocky start,” says Bob LaPrelle, president of the Museum of the American Railroad in Frisco, Texas. “I think Amtrak was created out of the mess from the Penn Central bankruptcy, and they had to do something with the northeast. They had to maintain service there, but they couldn’t carry such an endeavor without national support. I think that Amtrak was created as a national system to get the political support to do anything at all.”
