question, has Amtrak ever been in the black?
Not to my knowledge, but I think you are wrong in the answer to my question.
I am on the Acela right now, moving along at about 30 mph waiting for traffic ahead to clear
I had to look up "Acela". I had no idea what it was. 30 mph? Dang, if it were any slower you could outrun it! Well, if you could go the distance that is.
i assumed it was some local service in NJ
but i had to bing it too
it takes them 7 hours to get from Boston to DC
shoot, i can take a turbo prop from Portland ME and get to DC in a couple hours
Yes, that is correct.
"took over" is loaded language, and incorrect. "Saved" the passenger rail industry from extinction is closer to the truth.
Do you remember 'truth'?
What is the cost?
it was part of a flight to another location, so i dont know
yes, too bad you dont
the truth is they took over FAILING railroads
