Do you see the eventual elimination of checked baggage by Amtrak? Or, at minimum, free checked baggage? It seems those gleaming new baggage cars are being removed from more and more trains of late. It would not be surprising if Amtrak salivates about the revenue airlines take from checked (and even carry on) baggage fees and recoils at the "cost" of providing a free service. I admit that the few times I have been able to take a glimpse into a baggage car there seems to be little baggage. I hope I am wrong but I am not sure the future looks good here.
