I think the passengers should not be allowed to disembark in Asheville until the state comes through with the promised Amtrak service they promised would come in 2005. Since the museum is run by the state, we should blacken the train windows so they can't see any fall leaves.

The logic of this excapes me completely. I would think the views along the run would encourage the people riding this train to put pressure on the legislature to make things happen.

Right now, the jump in ridership with the addition of the third train should in itself make the state think adding trains is a good idea.
