Yep. And that's why so many of us still call it a boondoggle.

Yes! Still five minutes late though 🤣

Yesterday's southbound Eagle from Chicago was running about half hour early into St Louis when a mile from the station it was blocked by a long freight needing refueling. Arrival was actually a half hour late.

So despite higher running speeds, if we don't get the dispatchers to give Amtrak priority, the investment will have been for naught.
