AMTRAC Complaint - AMTRAC delays
EXETER, CALIFORNIA -- I rode to Arkansas and train was 3 hrs late arriving and three hrs returning.
Three things not told when you purchase a ticket.....Freight trains have the right of way and delay passenger trains. Hamburgers are ten dollars on a train. When hot weather expands rails...passenger trains (older models) can only travel 40 mph.
At least on the airlines, food is furnished and flight attendants are trained to smile no matter what.
AMTRAC has lost money for 30 years..the infrastructure probably prevents it from ever showing a profit. Has privatization ever been tried?
