Train Travel: A Luxury

Amtrak tickets are so expensive these days. It's to bad that this country has de-emphasized rail travel; and we continue to build and drive gas guzzling automobiles. Maybe if the price of gasoline increases dramatically in the Spring, as is forecast, this will finally begin to break the obsession that Americans have with their large, inefficient automobiles. We'll have to see.
