I completely agree. I have yet to see anything disgraceful about
Amtrak, except the way it's underfunded and then maligned for poor
service. Every Amtrak experience I've had has been as pleasant as
possible in the circumstances - which is a LOT more than I can say for
Norfolk Southern. I would much rather have Amtrak than NS when it comes
to running passenger trains.

Now, when it comes to getting 611 back out, I'd love it. I don't
realistically think it'll ever happen, but I'd love it if it did!
