Sunset Limited?

Recommended Posts

Easy, floridda will partially subsidize amtk operations south of gainsville on sultd, you could have alternating trains from gainsville and miami as well, similar to the alternating NER trains, some end at nyc, some end at boston, some end in ct.

Phoenix, Arizona, I think is "dead". I believe Amtrak will keep the Sunset Limited on the Main Line with the station in Maricopa being the closest (I think Amtrak offers bus service to and from Phoenix from Maricopa).

 

That leaves Phoenix with freight by Union Pacific and BN-SF.

 

Other Arizona stops are Tucson and Yuma, in addition to Maricopa.

No shuttle bus from Maricopa to Phoenix, which makes the station all but useless. The trip from LA to PHX takes about 9-10 hours, which is much longer than driving due to extremely slow tracks in California. It's a shame, otherwise I would use this line much more frequently.
