I have yet to peruse the 118 page Amtrak Five Year Fleet Plan, but reading the summary from PRA leads one to ask, could it be Mr. Anderson is not as evil as often portrayed? Before anyone spits on me, I am not his apologist. He's made some head scratching decisions that make us all skeptical about his commitment to a national network, not to mention a quality rail experience. But I feel slightly more optimistic that the demise of Amtrak as we know it may not happen as soon as feared. Obviously a lot needs yet to happen, such as adequate funding, but with a seemingly more receptive Democratic House majority and a Senate that has traditionally not been as destructive even under Republican rule, maybe...just maybe...the sky isn't falling quite yet. Then again, how do we square this with the recent revelations of a radical change in rail passenger service with more corridors and less long distance service?
