Amtrak Nearly Empty

Following up an earlier post about a news story that Amtrak routes from Michigan to Chicago had seen significant jumps in paying customers.

I saw the train again this morning and there appeared to be less than 10 passengers aboard the three cars.

As I noted in the earlier post, it’s likely that more riders get on a bit closer to Chicago than where I see it (near Grand Rapids) but three passenger cars and a second engine is a lot of train to move from Grand Rapids to St. Joseph for a dozen people.
