    Amtrak trains remind me of what it would be like to ride a train across the USSR in the late 1980s. I am all for privatization that would make trains run and look better.

    The problem of these longer routes are obvious to anyone riding them. They run every day whether they are full or empty! They don't need to cut a long distance line completely. If they ran only a few times a week, they would be full (every run). These lines are not ferrying commuters to work. They take passengers who buy their tickets weeks in advance and don't have a problem with going on a Wednesday instead of Thursday. It is frustrating to see gov. run companies lose money when the remedy is so easy.

    I took the Amtrak from Denver to Salt Lake City on the California Zephyr earlier this year and it was a lot of fun! The only thing was on the way back the train was 9 hours late. But as a group of 4 college students, it has to be one of my favorite experiences in all of college! I hope they end up keeping the long distance lines and find ways to improve those ones even if they operate at a loss. Maybe taking money from their more profitable lines and putting it toward the long distance ones. That'd be great.

    From what I've overheard, Amtrak's biggest issue is they don't own most of their tracks, and rely on unreliable freight companies. That really needs to change on all but the most unused routes.

    I am currently sitting in a train commuting home from Copenhagen (0:30 AM). Since DK is approximately 400 by 400 km, you can cross the country in two or three hours. DSB (the Danish equivalent of Amtrak) is shit at operating trains, but this seems to be on a whole new level.

    The only reason for Amtrak to turn a profit is in order to be sold off. Amtrak was never meant to turn a profit. Just alleviate the need of Class I railroads to have to carry passengers. Which it has done. Socializing debts and ensuring profitability for railroads

    I was born in Sweden which is also quite good at high-speed rail. I once took the X2000 from Gothenburg to Stockholm, the capital. I don't remember the speed that our train was doing but it was FAST!! The trip between the two cities took about 3 hours and it was very comfortable. Besides, you get to see the country which is kind of hard if you would fly and the country is beautiful.

    5.14-5.18: Making a 'local train' all the way from Richmond VA to Portland ME. Funny idea, but what about passing Boston MA as the trains travelling south depart from the South station, and the trains travelling north from, you guess, the North station. And there is no direct railroad (railway) connection between the 2 stations...

I don't care if the train is late you don't take the train to be on time you take the train to relax it's ridiculous that our government would not want to spend the money to keep such a wonderful asset to our country.

    I use to be a conservative democrat and over the years I was fed up with the democrats and republicans and their constant fighting. As far as I am concerned Pelosi is a total nutcake and her attack of President Trump is illegal, wasting time and money when the United States of America has more important issues however if anyone should be impeached it should be Pelosi, Adam Schiff and his thugs who do not care about the United States of America. For your information President Trump is on the right track regarding immigration and NATO and American citizens are sick and tired of footing the bill for NATO and other political organizarions. For the record Speaker of the House Pelosi should be impeached along with the rest of her leftwing Commie Sympathizing Goons. The democrats have to respect the office of the President and work with President Trump to keep America as the worlds leader of democracy. I like President Trump and he may not be perfect however he's doeing a good job at keeping America strong and stopping China from displacing America as the worlds leading nation. For a fact China and Russia have not changed since the end of WW2 and if China and Russia had their way the United States of America would be a defeated nation. As long as the United States of America maintains it's US Navy, US Marines, US Army, US Air Force and US Coast Guard we cannot be defeated. However the Chinese must be brought to account for it's thievery and predatory theft of other nations resouces such as intenational theft of other nations fishing stocks and natural rescources. Most important China must banned from the Arctic Commision and not be allowed to navigate the Northwest Passage in Alaska and Canada period. These waters belong to the USA and Canada and if you left the Chinese in Northwest Passage they will pollute and rape the fishing stocks and try to steal land from other nations. Presently China is the only nation in the world that polluted, raped and decimated their entire fishing stocks of the entire Chinese coast. Since than the Chinese became actively engaged in the world-world piracy of poaching of international fising stocks from every small nation to weak to fight and defend their coastlines. China has become a world-wide predatory lender worse than the Mafia and Russian Loan Sharks. We must work hard to stop Chinas Island building and bribing officials of small nations in the south pacific region to steal their land. The Chinese have become the scourge of the world with their International thievery and theft of other nations natural resources!!!

    I was going to take an Amtrak sleeper to yellow stone. It was going to cost $1200. Needless to say I didn’t. It should never be 2 times as much as an airline ticket. Maybe they shouldn’t have ripped all those tracks up starting in the 50’sthe Milwaukee road’s northern route is the best example. They could have dedicated that as passenger route. That way they wouldn’t have to mix with freight
