I tried booking a trip on a Wednesday from Cary, NC, to Orlando, just to see what the website would do. Instead of posting a warning that there are no trains that I could take for that day, it quietly, without fanfare, posted the trip - FOR THE FOLLOWING FRIDAY. I wonder how many people will fall into that trap and end up booking their trip on the wrong day. With the rest of the long distance schedules being cut on 10/1, I would bet that it will be quite a lot.

I should correct what I said. I didn't try to book a trip (where the warning does come up), but was looking up the schedules (schedules tab) (where no warning is presented).

I just got this when putting in my originating and destination pair and a Wednesday date on the main page.
