    Checked baggage is an amenity which is cheap for Amtrak to provide and highly valuable to customers. The cutbacks in checked baggage service are just dumb.

    If checked baggage is more cheaply done with an onboard baggageman than with a baggageman at every station, fine, but one way or the other, cutting checked baggage cuts ridership and revenue by more than it can possibly cut costs.

    The appropriations bill just passed requires Amtrak to restore station agents recently cut. The million dollar question is will they actually do it or just ignore the language.
