The Amtrak Story

By Frank N. Wilner.

Softcover, 6x9, 166 pages.

"The Amtrak Story is a look at how Amtrak was born and the evolution it has undertaken in just a few short years. Wilner analyzes the political scene that Amtrak grew out of and presents a well-honed argument for why Amtrak means so much to the U.S. The struggle for funding from the very beginning is explored as well as the many pitfalls plaguing the railroad along the way. The lessons gleamed from this well-researched book are ideal for anyone interested in Amtrak or passenger service in general."
