Funny how they are choosing to do this when fuel prices are at its lowest they've been for years.

I love trains and I won't mind riding on those when they are on stream. The current Amtrack is fair but slow something really fast will make traveling fun.

Amtrak accidents hurt safety reputation, but railroad remains popular with Congress, riders. Criticism of the railroad focuses on government subsidies rather than infrastructure, experts say. Source 3s.

Workers say they warned Amtrak before deadly crash

In the days before Amtrak 501 careened off the tracks last month in a deadly crash, engineers and conductors warned their supervisors that they did not feel adequately trained on the new route, according to more than a dozen sources.

Several train cars flew off an overpass, landing on Interstate 5 in the December 18 accident near DuPont, Washington, which left three dead and more than 100 injured. At the time, Amtrak 501 was making its inaugural journey of a new Seattle-to-Portland run called the Point Defiance Bypass route.

Engineers and conductors had safety concerns, citing rushed and "Totally inadequate" training which left them feeling dangerously unprepared for the new route, according to multiple sources, including several directly involved in the training. Crew members traditionally train on new routes to familiarize themselves with the signs, terrain and other physical characteristics which vary from route to route. Ref. CNN.

I'm sure they gave the warnings but the ones in suits that don't like to spend money probably skipped it over at the cost of people's lives.
