Amtrak is micro-managed by Congress. They have to ask for funding every year, and the amount of money they receive from the government is miniscule compared to other methods of transportation, yet it comes with all sorts of strings attached.. They don't control the rails they travel on except for the NE corridor,, and the railroads have no interest in maintaining their roadbeds correctly. Most of the revenue goes to support the Northeast Corridor, which despite being incredibly popular, could not be operated correctly by the private sector. What they need are a lot more long-distance equipment so supply would meet demand and prices would go down,, but Congress is too busy investigating how much it costs them to pay some poor soul to wash dishes or clean toilets.

Amtrak, I love you, but why are you pushing suites when it's practically impossible to book a single bedroom, and when you can it costs more than a room at The Four Seasons?

And here's a photo tip: position the plate so the logo is nice and centered, and take the picture before you start eating.
