I was on Amtrak in Dec, headed to LA. Around El Paso, I heard a couple of bangs under my car and then the side. Later I was told that kids threw something under the train and rocks at the side. A lady that rides the train a lot told me that it happens more frequently than people know. Coming back, we had so many pit stops. An employee would have to get off the train, and check the tracks and then he would get on as we passed and walk back to the front. People wonder why the train can’t stay on schedule.

I rode a train from Boston to Florida a few years ago. It was hell. the crime on the train and around the train was unbelievable. Took me through the lousiest parts of every city too.
Funny in Maine recently I heard that the Portland to Boston run is an unqualified success. The entire thing is supported by grants and federal monies and would be dead on the vine with them.
It competes directly with immaculate buses in our area that go directly where a passenger wants to arrive, the airport or South station.
Sometimes leftists make no sense with my moneies.
