I do like how they justified it as part of "fleet modernization" considering they have no real modernization plans for the Superliner long distance fleet. However, I have that thought that the PPCs have been on borrowed time for a long time, so I am not at all surprised. I also read into the "...Amtrak is reviewing amenities..." note that the amenities are gone, they are really not contemplating using Diner-Lounges or SSLs to provide PPC service. "Review" in many circumstances is a euphamism for "quietly let die". The Starlight will become just another standard Superliner LD. Thank you, Brian Rosenwald, for creating it. It was great while it lasted.
