Could We Have The Answer For A Post-Amtrak Rail Future Here?

As in the Florida East Coast Railway's noble experiment in passenger-rail investment in south Florida, otherwise known as Brightline.

Still, would other rail operators be willing to attempt similar, never mind the risk?

      (NAPSI)—This summer travel season may be the last year with train travel as an option for millions of Americans. The Administration’s proposed 2018 budget wipes out funding for almost all Amtrak trains except on the East and West coasts. More than 220 cities and towns will lose train service completely and 140 million people will completely lose an entire transportation mode.

      “If Congress enacts this budget, our national passenger rail network will largely cease to exist,” said Jim Mathews, National Association of Railroad Passengers (NARP) president and CEO. “These cuts will have a profound economic impact both nationally, regionally and locally.”

      Pictures Of Bisti - A Trip Through The Past.

      The great thing about being in the Wild West of North America is the natural sites. Trump is threatening these sites as we speak. We as Native Americans and as a society in general can't take the desecration of lands by corporate hacks. Well if they ever come for Bisti. I still have these wonderful photos to show what it was like....

      These formations took 1000's of years to make, and maybe only one administration to destroy.

          Did anyone believe that this former CEO would not blindly leap to the defense of another CEO? That was to be expected, as they will almost tend to defend one another. So, this CEO calls the passenger immature, taking his clue from Munoz initial statement. What this shows, to me at least, is that we have one former CEO without a clue defending the current CEO without a clue.

              I have always wondered what happens when they overbook and the people who were sold the overbooked tickets, say no to changing flights.

              Well here is the answer. It is not pretty! We are all becoming blades of grass!

                  Anyone got their holidays planned? It's still not too late to visit NK :)

                  Many North Koreans have literally never seen a foreigner before - even on the Internet, to which they are denied access - and may be surprised to discover that Americans, for instance, do not have horns. We, the tourists, may similarly be surprised to observe that the average North Korean is not a swivel-eyed fanatic but downtrodden and fearful-looking. If you stop the tours you re-seal the membrane, to the detriment, I would argue, of both sides.

                      The word "cram" is quite accurate to describe what this airline is actually doing. Rest assured, however, that those in charge of the Airbus company will not be the ones flying in those "cramped" quarters, but for those lowly customers, the lowly ones who pay their salaries, that is perfectly fine. "After all", or so they believe, "is not our very existence a favor to them?"
