The Class I railroads are poor stewards of America's railroad infrastructure, and have spent the last several decades cannibalizing it in the pursuit of short term profit. Even beyond the questionable ethics of their constant downsizing, this degradation had caused the share of freight traffic carried on the rails to plummet, and made it nearly impossible for Amtrak to run reliable passenger service. It's time for We the People to take back our railroad infrastructure for a better and more sustainable future. Nationalization Now!
