Killing Amtrak

More on the conspiracy to make Amtrak obsolete . . . or to remind people that it is obsolete (why is it I keep following links to the Reuters "Stock Market News"? Do they just figure that everything affects the market in some way or another?). Everybody knows the U.S. is just too big for trains, anyway.
NEW YORK, May 25 (Reuters) - A power outage shut down train service between New York and Washington during rush hour on Thursday, affecting some of the most heavily traveled lines in the U.S. rail system, officials said.
It gets better:
CNN said one of its producers was stuck inside a tunnel.
UPDATE: Friday, 8:00 a.m.

Electricity has been restored. Everyone has disembarked, grumpy and stinky. The CNN producer is still stuck inside a tunnel.
