That being said, I wouldn't say American trains are "bad". There must be a better word. Inefficient is perhaps the best word. Both financially and operationally, Amtrak is woefully inefficient.
I would say that the rail experience on Amtrak is better than India Rail (though I would like to enjoy IR someday).
Certainly better than much of Russia's Trans-Siberian, or Australian long distance trains.

The average citizen pays less than $6 a year in taxes towards Amtrak. I'd be happy to double or triple that and see what happens.
