[DML] More routes, Amtrak Auto Train



Bill, I think a limiting factor to additional routes is that the car carrier
cars are Taller than many of the fridges and tunnels can accommodate.

Considering that AutoTrain is Amtrak's most profitable service, I never have
understood why they don't add another route from the northeast. Folks in New
York/New Jersey (and points north) still have to drive at least 250-300
miles, pay all those tolls, sit through megalopolis traffic, etc just to
reach Lorton. Amtrak owns the rails between New York and DC -- put them to
better use than over budget and failure prone tilting trains that only shave
half an hour off conventional travel times.

This is a great option for those that want to take their car but don't want
that long drive down and back to Florida.
