AMTRAK WARNS ABOUT LOOMING SHUTDOWN

AMTRAK WARNS ABOUT LOOMING SHUTDOWN according to this Washington Post article.

Outside of the Northeast Corridor, I suspect this “warning” is being taken with a collective yawn. Inside the Corridor, I’m sure that Septa, NJ Transit, the Long Island Rail Road and other commuter lines can temporarily boost traffic to make up the slack of shutdown trains. And while commuters would face some shuffling of their plans, wouldn’t it be worth some temporary discomfort to have come out of it with the federal government out of the railroad business?
