It's easy to blame Norfolk Southern, but Amtrak should have pushed WAY harder to open the new station.
But the root problem still is Norfolk Southern, easy to blame or not. Logic should not exit the discussion just because it points squarely at one part which for some reason we might wish to deflect the responsibility from, to another. :D

Oh you're totally right. There is enough blame to go around. For that matter, the City and County officials who decided to renovate the old NYC station should have gotten all the agreements in place before the project began.

At this point, the best option in my opinion is to move the Lorain County service to Amherst, which is just west of Elyria and has a nice historic station standing in their downtown area.
