Actually they have thought about it. It's in one of the congressional hearings that they are waiting on the reauthorization to get further direction from Congress (preferably some form of funding) on the future of the LD network before they proceed on the bilevel equipment process. So until that happens this year, we're in a holding pattern.I hope the contract for the Superliner replacement/fleet addition/refurbishment is put on hold until Amtrak has semi competent forward thinking adult supervision at the helm. Right now we just have to hope maintenance isn’t being deferred on the Superliners and LD locomotives in the name of breaking even. That’s one easy way to sabotage the network.
