I was just corresponding with a friend who made a trip on the Autotrain yesterday. He reported that there was only one open cafe car, the train had no dining cars open and that meals were served in their rooms. Breakfast was a "grab and go" event. The staff told him all this was the result of budget cuts? Before arrriving it was also anounced that there was a staff shortage at Sanford. We will probably read more about this later as he will post here but does anyone know what is happening?
