ANTAGONIZE THE CARRIAGE TRADE.

Amtrak's corrupt bargain, in which sleeping car rates on the Silver Star go down in exchange for there no longer being a proper dining car, is not playing well with veteran train riders.

And it might be the most effective way for Amtrak to self-destruct, as it's unlikely we'd even have an Amtrak if the common carrier railroads had managed to get rid of all the dining cars by 1968 or so.

Trains promises a future analysis of the effects of the degradation of service.
