    Guess what? Maintenance for trains costs money! Where is your money going right now? Tax breaks for the riches! Courtesy of the orange turd of a president in the White House. Your country is starting to look like a banana republic!

    Why? Because you keep demanding the government pay for crap it shouldn't. And when it does, there is no money to pay for the things it has to pay for.

    Lol the world has so much to say about the way America spends its money until those other countries need help fighting wars, recovering from natural disasters, or food aid. However, politicians need to get off their asses and stop giving themselves raises and people need to get off the welfare dole so we can afford to upgrade our public transportation.

    this was a new track...the problem was speed. the conductor was going 80 mph in a 30mph zone. STOP LISTENING TO THE POS LIAR IN OUR WHITE HOUSE...nothing he says is every true.

    It was new track...the engineer was at fault as he was doing 79 in a 30mph zone!

    The Republicans have been on a war path to cut government "spending" and one of their favorite target of "spending" cut is funding for Amtrak. This is their modus operandi, they would cut spending on specific government services, then when the services suffer due to lack of funding, they go and tell their voters:"When is a government service ever be good?".

    This is misleading...the conductor was travelling at almost 100 on a portion of the track that required 30 mph...
