RailPAC invited Amtrak CEO Richard Anderson to present his vision for Amtrak in the 21st Century at the Annual Steel Wheels Conference in Sacramento, Saturday 29th September. A brief (terse?) response from his PA informed us that he is “unavailable”. No offer, as in the past, to send a senior officer in his stead. It has been clear from his dealings with politicians and other advocates that he has no time for opposing opinions, nor for those of us who are the true, loyal supporters of passenger rail. So the fight for the National Network continues.
Be sure to support the Steel Wheels Conference and Annual meeting. There will be plenty of interesting and informative speakers, and discussion as to how we continue the fight for the National Network.
