I have just returned from a short trip on the Coast Starlight and I have had it. I haven’t been on an Amtrak long-distance train since 2010 and now I remember why. The service, the cleanliness, the Amtrak… I want to make a few points about why Amtrak will NEVER be able to compete. No: It is not because of airlines and cheaper modes of transportation. It is because of examples like this I have been seeing for YEARS.
