    The obsession with the past is hurting the future of passenger rail

    Yes... but poor San Antonio just can't seem to get any kind of rail transit in place... and they just keep on a-building more and more freeways which as you mentioned above... are full of traffic...

    With Union Station right across the street from the Capitol one would expect security to be extremely tight!

    With appreciation for your forward thinking. Many of us on this forum... while nostalgic for the good old days, realize that change indeed means change... needs to keep pace with todays needs and todays innovations... especially if rail travel is to survive and thrive. Great Post! 🤞

    Nice reminder of something we all should be doing... it is Amtrak's responsibility to listen to passengers so that they can provide a service that is acceptable to the traveling public. And it is the responsibility of Amtrak management to listen and react accordingly...

    All this was of course pre covid. Hampton serves bagged meals that are pretty substantial and include protein. And they are wrapped with a cheery smile... but meh... covid steals the show everywhere!

    Is the following concept a part of the Amtrak training manual??? "Good work performance is based upon adequate training, the intelligence to process that training, job experience, and positive attitude to apply both the experience and training with articulate care."

    That's interesting stuff to contemplate. What we do know is that our president loves his Big Mac hamburgers and Oreo cookies... documented by a very robust waistline!🤣😝🤪

    Disturbing that these customer service agents are so incompetent. There seems to be a really big problem here although the ones I have talked to have been understanding and on top of everything. Wrong information given so many times is very disturbing and causes me to wonder about the...

    Since 3x weekly began, have any connections been missed in Chicago?

    Like Amtrak... there are issues with management... and Greyhound seems to be no exception. It seems that their fleet, stations, and attitudes have deteriorated in the past few years. This COVID thing has them really hurting. Sad. :rolleyes:
