Let's be realiistic - how many have ever rode Amtrak, let alone know what it is? Rail is the most efficient transport - how many of us insist transport by truck or air.

We ride Amtrak every year up north. Dad decided to ride the train all the way to New England instead of the autotrain and drive two days each way. We had a better trip, and actually saved a whole day each way.

We need a campaign to ship by rail - instead of the candidates arguing about Martin Luther King, Jr, let's make a difference in this world.

Daniel -- I just took amtrak yesterday, from VA to NY. It's my preferred method of travel.

the train was packed.

I really prefer it to driving or flying.

obviously someone has heard of it Daniel...those who live in CT but work in NY are dependent on it...and it is the way my husband and I travel to Manhattan as well.

That's great! I keep hearing the horror stories that the Republican Party is killing Amtrak. We need all the support we can get.

After 9/11 President Bush subsidised several airlines - he literally gave them money, our tax dollars, to bail them out. The same time he's trying to gut the national train.

I thank all of you who ride the train.
