Classic reporting on transportation from somebody who has no practical transportation knowledge. They even tell for the "NEC is profitable" tidbit that is a falseified-in-the-books figure Amtrak makes up.

The PTC video linked on the bottom is even worse.

But everybody who watches will take Vox is the total truth, so we're all screwed, as usual.

Yahoo is a terrible source for information. Just pure click bait. Just a week or two ago Yahoo had an article on why train travel was so great on Amtrak, giving good reviews to a trip from like LA to NYP.
