> Taking people from one place to another is not a money making activity, absent government (taxpayer) participation. Airlines, buses, ferries, you name it, all function within an infrastructure that is funded from public coffers. This is not an original thought: David P. Morgan said it much more eloquently nearly 60 years when he devoted an entire issue of Trains magazine to "Who Shot the Passenger Trains?".


Thanks for the pointer, Sgt. Joe

"The April, 1959 issue of Trains magazine contained an incisive, 38-page report titled, “Who Shot the Passenger Train?” Written by the magazine’s pithy editor, David P. Morgan, the report was the longest and arguably most important article in the publication’s 50-plus-year history. Unfortunately, the report isn’t available on line, but here is a summary of Morgan’s conclusions."
