4th QUARTER 2019: Amtrak’s New York–Florida Champion strikes a proud pose at Richmond’s Broad Street Station in 1975. In this issue, PTJ takes you to Florida on Amtrak and pre-Amtrak trains to explore the important business of getting passengers to the Sunshine State. And speaking of Amtrak, we are claiming this to be “The Amtrak Food Issue,” as several of our department columnists and authors focus on this controversial topic. Oh, there’s more, including a Budd RDC trip over “rare mileage” trackage formerly belonging to Lehigh Valley, Jersey Central, and Reading; an Amtrak circle trip between St. Louis and the West Coast; and a PTJ visit to Washington, D.C., to check out Amtrak’s new Viewliner sleepers and the latest in modified food service. All this and more in the Fourth Quarter issue of Passenger Train Journal.
