FASTER, PLEASE. An Olympiad in Chicago means Olympian Hiawathas.
If people could get from downtown Milwaukee to downtown Chicago in one hour on Amtrak, there would be a lot of Olympics spectators who would prefer to book hotel rooms in the Milwaukee area, [Chicago 2016 chairman Patrick] Ryan said. That trip currently takes about 90 minutes.


Olympics or not, 60 minute trains on memory-pattern two hour headways are laudable policy goals. The last 75 minute timing on that line was 50 years ago.
