    West Virginia is not huge but the people there support the train, even though it only runs 3 times a week, which counts for something. See Empire Builder vs other long distance trains. I think that the whole route is worthwhile but really it needs to go daily.

    And WV's Congressional delegation fights tooth and nail whenever someone tries to touch it. Manchin is the one who got station agents restored on the route. 

    It still drives me insane that the route isn't daily. I thought the BBR was supposed to be improved by now. If it's equipment they need, hopefully the Viewliner sleepers get delivered soon.
