Ok, I am thinking positive and Brightline will be profitable and grow. Amtrak could learn from Brightline. Customer service, equipment, catering, etc. A rational reorganization of Amtrak Florida service would add the long ago discontinued "Silver Comet" (yes, I know it went to Birmingham under SAL over fifty years ago) to St. Petersburg via Tampa using the former SAL tracks from Tampa over to Pinellas County. The "Silver Star" could be spilt at Jacksonville with the Florida west coast section as above and the east coast down to Miami on the FEC. The "Silver Meteor" would be a NYP-MIA train only and the "cream of the crop" also down the FEC to Miami. Brightline would eventually take care of the cross Florida traffic. Dreaming? Yes, perhaps, but I think it would certainly work.
