With the election coming up, the future of rail passenger service is in question again. Almost since its inception, Amtrak has focused on the short distance corridors. However, is it the right direction for rail passenger?
Here in Utah, we do not have any lines that would qualify as short distance corridors although UDOT tries to claim Logan to Ceder City is one but I would question that.
