As far as expansion of corridor service in the southeast - particularly in Roanoke and the Norfolk Southern heartland per say - not sure if I can blame NS, as they are going to be battling capacity constraint. It’s no longer a two track main from DC to Atlanta. The “corridor plans” of Amtrak can draw some parallel to the M&E initiative during the Downs and Warrington years. Amtrak drew up plans, announced the plans, and then approached the freight railroads by trying to cram it down their throats. “What do you mean it could be a problem” was the simplistic way of putting it. Freight railroads were almost an after thought... The corridors noted above are not as radical admittedly. Amtrak appears to be talking with the freight RR’s now. However, some of these projects pre-date Anderson’s term so I don’t see Anderson being very radical in corridor development - or as much as he proclaimed he wanted to be. Capacity constraint is going to be the main issue. And that should also be explained. It’s new trains being put on the schedule to develop a corridor. But to the extent that Amtrak can help and offer a grant to rebuild track where the second/third/fourth mainline was rationalized years ago, that will be for the better and help NS come around, as an example. Rebuilding - strategically - some track rationalized during the various Class 1 mergers will help to develop corridors. Immediately coming to mind is the track between Richmond and Raleigh that was abandoned/tore up. Amtrak rebuilt the line between Springfield and Brattleboro, VT and this helped the Vermonter tremendously. But with low freight traffic it can now allow the State of MA to invest in and build the “Knwledge Corridor.” NC has done its Piedmont expansions, but with also track expansion and improvements! BNSF has said its capacity is tight between Twin Cities and Chicago. Second passenger train frequency is a no-brainer, ensuring capacity to run it, or installing track to facilitate it, becomes the issue. And whatever Amtrak does, it should NOT give up the “slots” it has with LD trains. But many of these corridors mentioned have been on the drawing boards before. Seasonal service to Rockland in Maine is the only major new one for me.
