OK- forgive me if I'm being obtuse, but why not??? The Sunset once ran all the way down to ORL, and doubtless Amtrak has lots of data on how that ridership was. If they had good loads, why not resurrect it as one of the frequencies? And I think it could certainly work as far as Jacksonville, which is a big city and large Amtrak facility.There is no plan to restore the Sunset East. There is a plan to run a daily service between New Orleans and Florida. It could either be a self standing service or an extension of the CONO.
The second frequency would be a stand-alone.
