Nice Try, Amtrak - But You Still Suck

it's only a picture - your experience will vary considerablyAnd it's not your fault...

Despite the facts that Amtrak trains are ALWAYS late and cost more than flying, they keep urging us to travel by rail. It's a nice ad, keeping that "glory days of rail service" nostalgia they feature in their posters for sale on their site. You can still buy a 2002 calendar at their store! Why you'd ever want to? I have no idea.

I could easily get political here, but I won't. (OK, I can't resist: Hey, Congress! If you shelled out to Amtrak only half of what you gave the airlines post 9/11, we might have a decent alternative to flying!)
