I believe the forum's rules state that we can't post full articles online, but instead must provide a brief summary and a link. Unfortunately, as I said, I can't provide a link to the article. So, I will just post a couple of quotes from the article (hopefully, that is allowed).
If I can find a working link to this (or a similar) article, I'll post it.Amtrak Threatens End of Montreal Train Route
June 18, 2004

The Adirondack passenger train to Montreal could shut down before the end of the year if New York state doesn’t pay the $4.4 million Amtrak says its is owed in back payments.
“The state of New York owes Amtrak $4.4 million in back payments for the operation of the Adirondack,” Black added. “Amtrak does not have a signed contract to operate the train. We’ve continued to operate it without payments since early 2003,” Black said.
“We’ve given the state everything they’ve asked for in terms of financial information,” Black said. “If they wish for more information, we’ll give it to them.”
“But, we need to be paid,” he added. “If we don’t receive full payment by June 30, Amtrak will begin the process to discontinue the train.”
