Don't know how you decided that 500 miles is the maximum distance a "logical" traveler will travel.

That said, consider Amtrak's Capitol Limited which operates over a 780-mile route between Washington, DC and Chicago. As I live in Pittsburgh, all of my trips between Pittsburgh and Chicago and Pittsburgh and Washington DC are under your magic 500-mile threshold. So in your model of train service, does a Pittsburgh traveler get two separate trains or do you only look at the entire 780-mile route and decide it's not worth running at all?
