    I have been told Amtrak is shutting down all their services except the one that goes between DC and NYC. IS this true? Anyone has any ideas? I haven't heard anything on the news.

    I've heard that they have received some temporary Federal funding that will keep them operating thru August.
  3. Amtrak and other railroad news

    If you want to keep up with what's happening in the railroad industry, go to http://www.railnews.net which excerpts articles from newspapers in the U.S. and Canada and the tri-weekly news articles by Bill Stephens at http://www.trains.com The television news people don't know what a train or railroad is unless there's a derailment!
