Passenger service will never be as good as it once was. Amtrak cut
service off to many places thet depended on it and was never replaced.
PC passenger service was much better despite no heat caused by
boilers, but when there was steam those cars were warm opposed to
today's "luke warm" amjunk cars with HEP. And when HEP fails the
entire train has no heat or lights where in PC era every car had it's
CR can never be a PC. To prove CR has done better, CR would have to
keep running the entire 44,000 mile system that they cut up to a tiny
1100 miles. CR was the fed govt whose only job was to cut up the
railroad and not compete with their interstate highay system. PC had
many competing lines that CR gave to the trucks. No wonder CR was
falling appart and needed the merger of CSX and NS to bail them out
before they collaspe.
