A Former Airline CEO Thinks He Can Fix It. Onetime Delta CEO Richard Anderson has nearly eliminated the railroad’s operating losses, but some train fanatics are fuming about the changes By Ted Mann July 6, 2019 12:01 am ET The signs are aimed at the thousands of train passengers who rumble each day through North Philadelphia—two banners 14 feet high by 26 feet wide, mounted outside an old package-sorting facility built in the heyday of the Pennsylvania Railroad. “SAVE AMTRAK,” one says. The other: “FIRE ANDERSON.” No one has stirred up the people who feel deeply about the national passenger railroad—long-haul train fanatics, safety regulators, union employees, private railcar owners—quite like Richard Anderson, the former Delta Air Lines Inc. boss who took over as Amtrak’s chief executive in 2017. “He’s trying to run it like an airline,” said Jack Dinsdale, a railroad union official.
