Mismanagement and ‘Monster Trains’ Have Wrecked American Rail NY TImes 10/9/22

Opinion piece by Justin Roczniak focusing on "a deliberate, half-century-long conversion of the nation’s rail system from a network that could deliver many kinds of goods to market (while also hosting hundreds of passenger train lines), to a fleet of land barges that are good for coal and containers — not much else."
