WILL YOU SUPPORT AMTRAK WITHOUT LONG DISTANCE TRAINS?
Send e-mail and contact Congress in support of full funding for Amtrak and Amtrak's long distance trains.There are only 14 overnight trains left in the Amtrak system with sleeping cars and they are all threatened. Passengers on long distance trains in coach also pay for and expect to receive excellent service on board. Reform known as Diner Lite "Simplified Dining Service" must work as mandated by U.S.DOT/Congress to reduce cost.
