I will only say that the Auto Train Onboard Service Crew members --- especially the long-term veterans --- are very unhappy that they will be expected to deliver such a diluted level of service. They frequently tell me I should be glad to be retired, Not only will this be a degrading of service, but it is also likely to create other practical problems related to generation of excessive trash and a reduction of staff. If the train is extremely late, there seems to be no way to provide emergency food supplies because the elimination of the coach diner means the likely elimination of storage space for those supplies. As long as the train runs over CSX, and auto drivers continue to get smacked by trains, and the Southeast continues to experience hurricanes, there will be occasional delays. Please don't blame the crews. None of this was their idea.
