Trainscapes: Amtrak Is Broken…

Welcome to the Trainscapes segment! Each week here on Geek Alabama, Trainscapes will feature train content including videos of trains and behind the scenes action of trains and locomotives. Some people have an interest in seeing trains, and we here at Geek Alabama aim to please the train lovers!

Amtrak is broken. With crumbling rail infrastructure, lack of investment in new technologies, and decreasing support from the public and politicians, the end may be near for the days of American Rail. Amtrak began from the decline of passenger rail, a quasi-public corporation to take operation of passenger rail in the United States. While technically a private entity, it would receive taxpayer funding to keep it operational. This hybrid of a for-profit company and public entity is the current curse of Amtrak and a major problem with the entire system of rail travel in the United States.
